Skydive for Cransley! Our Christmas jumpers event will see you completing a tandem skydive in a FREE Santa suit or bring along your favourite/ worst Christmas jumper to wear when you jump from a plane at 13,000 feet whilst raising money for Cransley.
When you and your instructor leave the plane, you will fall at about 120 mph, descending to 5,000 feet in around 40 seconds. At this point, your instructor will open the parachute and fly you safely back to earth! During the six minutes or so under the parachute, you will enjoy breathtaking and unique views of the local area and beyond.
On the day of your skydive, your instructor will explain in detail what you have to do and what will take place during the flight up, the free fall descent and the ride down under the parachute. This briefing normally takes around 20 minutes.
*** Time is TBC – The event will take place as a morning or afternoon session ***
Entries: £200 is payable to Sibson Airfield to cover the cost of the skydive, of which £50 is payable as a deposit upon booking. The suggested minimum sponsorship is an additional £100, on top of the £200, which will go to Cransley Hospice.
No experience necessary, full training will be given on the day.
