“An amazing opportunity to raise funds for a great cause. The skydive was undoubtedly a most incredible experience – one I will remember forever. The views, the peace and quiet and moving my legs in the clouds – fabulous!”
For this challenge, you will be taking part in a Tandem Skydive, securely strapped to the front of a highly experienced instructor and jumping from 10,000ft over the beautiful Cornish coast line – all whilst helping to save lives.
Cornwall Air Ambulance have worked with the family run skydive centre – Cornish Parachute Club in Perranporth – for many years. All their instructors are fully qualified with over 22,000 jumps combined.
Registration costs just £50 per person and we ask all participants to raise a minimum of £395 in sponsorship, although we hope you aim to raise as much as you can.
If you are booking with the Cornish Parachute Club, your arrival time will be stated in your booking confirmation email from them, along with all of the details and requirements for the day of your skydive. Please expect to be at the airfield ALL DAY on the day of your jump. The Cornish Parachute Club do get busy, sometimes with 15+ people jumping in one day, each flight can take 2 tandems at a time and will take around 40 minutes to complete each jump, so it may be a long day. If bad weather prevents you from jumping a refund will not be given – you will be offered a new date to try again as soon as mutually convenient and you will have a year from the date you booked to come back and complete your jump.
The day of your jump will be nerve wracking but please be patient. The team do try to complete jumps as quickly as possible so we ask that participants do not chase them on the day. It is worth the wait!
The minimum age to take part is 16 years old and maximum is 65 years. All children taking part under the age of 18 years will need permission from a parent/guardian. The maximum weight is 14 stone.
If you are over 65 or weigh more than 14 stone you will need to contact the parachute club before registering for your jump.
