Important Safety Requirements

Each Aerobility Big Skydive participant must adhere to:

You need to be at least 16 to do a tandem skydive, if you are aged between 16 and 18 you will need a parent or legal guardian to sign to give their consent.

Due to higher operational cost there will be a surcharge for people over 15 stone. 15–16 stone £10 per person, 16 -17 stone £20 per person, 17–18 stone £30.

Meet all the listed health requirements stated in the participant declaration form – copy available to download here.

Be able to adopt the freefall and landing positions:

  1. On exit you’ll need to be able to tip your head back and arch your back whilst tucking your legs up behind you. Your arms will need to be crossed, into and across your chest.
  2. During freefall you will uncross your arms and bring then up in front of you.
  3. As you come into land your instructor will tell you to lift your legs, you need to be able to lift your feet up to knee level whilst in a seated position. You will be able to use the fabric on the sides of your jumpsuit to assist you.

Full attention must be given to the training provided. It is at the Instructors discretion about continuing the programme if the jumper is not demonstrating the ability to follow instructions.

Skydiving is a weather dependent activity. If for any reason we are unable to jump on the 9th September, we will quickly rearrange the event for the next available date.


Can people with a disability take part?

As a charity working with disabled people, we are keen to make this event as accessible as is safely possible. Although the ‘health requirements’ declaration may look daunting, we are delighted to confirm that GoSkydive are committed to support us in this aim. If you have always wanted to skydive and are confidently able to adopt the safe freefall and landing positions, then please still complete the declaration and get in touch with Laura@Aerobility.com. Together with GoSkydive, we will do our best to make this possible for you.


GoSkydive

We believe a tandem skydive is more than just jumping out of plane – it’s an experience that puts both your body and mind through their paces. A true life experience that will stay with you forever.


It doesn’t matter if you’ve not done a parachute jump before, we’re first time skydiving experts – and many of our customers are first time skydivers. We’re proud to offer all jumpers specialist tandem skydive training in a simulated training environment; something that sets GoSkydive apart from every other tandem skydiving dropzone in the world.

10,000 ft | 30 seconds of freefall time

This is the real thing! The excitement builds as our plane takes you up to 10,000ft before an unbeatable adrenaline rush as you freefall for 30 seconds.

We plan to make it a fun event for all your friends and family supporting you, and create a real party atmosphere throughout the day.

Secure Your Place!
