How do I get started?

Do I have to pay for my own jump?

Registration is free and there is no minimum sponsorship target. You will, however, need to cover the cost of your jump. This can differ depending on the airfield you choose, but we'd recommend you reserve around £250 to cover the jump fee. 

We ask people to fund their own jump costs so that we can put as much money as possible towards supporting our veterans.

Where can I do an event?

There are many skydiving centres across the UK so there's bound to be one near to you. Skyline have 20 skydiving centres across the UK. There are some outstanding views near the sea or in the mountains so you could choose a location further afield.

Do I get a refund if I can't do it?

If you change your mind about a charity skydive soon after booking, many third-party websites offer full refunds. If the weather conditions on the day will make it unsafe to jump, you can reschedule your booking for another date of your choice, but it is unlikely that you will get a refund. Often you can change the date of your jump if it is within a certain time period e.g. within 14 days of your scheduled jump and within a year of your booking date. Please check with your chosen charity or the third-party you have booked with for their refund policy.

Can I jump if I have a disability?

You should be able to skydive with almost any disability. If you have an existing medical condition, the organisers may need written permission from your GP. It is advisable to contact the booking centre for advice. 

If you are skydiving for Help for Heroes, please refer to Skyline's Terms and Conditions or contact our Events Team on events@helpforheroes.org.uk for guidance.

What training do I need to do?

You don’t need to do any training in advance of your jump. You will need to lift your legs up in front of you on landing, so if you are able to do this, and you don’t have a medical condition that prevents you from jumping, you are good to go. 

You might be a little anxious, as well as excited before your jump, and this is perfectly normal. Your skydiving team will guide you through everything on the day and make you feel at ease, so that you can enjoy your jump.

What can I expect on my skydive?

You can expect an unforgettable, exhilarating experience! You'll descend through the air from 10,000 feet, strapped to a fully qualified skydiving instructor. 

There'll be around 30 seconds of freefall time at a speed of about 120mph.Your adrenaline will be pumping for sure! 

Once your parachute opens at about 5,000 feet and your descent will slow down enough for you to relax and take in the breath-taking landscape around you. Savour every moment as it is awesome.

For more information on what to expect, take a look at Skyline's FAQs.
