Skydive 2019

Experience the adrenaline rush of free fall at 120mph and then soak up the bird’s eye view as you float back down to earth. Now’s your chance to join our tandem jump with highly experienced instructors and help The Y raise funds for homeless young people.

On the day

On arrival you’ll meet your instructor who will take you through your training and provide you with your jumpsuit and harness. You’ll ride up to altitude in a Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft that has been specially converted for skydiving. During the 20 minute flight you can enjoy the beautiful views of the British countryside.

You and your instructor will exit the plane at approximately 13,500ft and you will freefall for about 45 seconds, reaching speeds of over 120mph. At 5,000ft your instructor will deploy the parachute slowing you down for a gentler ride, during which you’ll be able to try steering. Your instructor will take control for the landing and debrief you afterwards.

How to book

More information and registration form will be available here soon. If you’d like to know more you can contact the fundraising team on or 0116 2046224.
