Frequently asked questions:

What does the jump involve?

The jump you will be taking part in is called a ‘Tandem Skydive’. This is because you will be freefalling through the air (without the parachute deployed) for several thousand feet; it is in Tandem because you will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times throughout the descent.

This is because it would be very costly to become professionally trained to parachute alone.

Points to remember:

  • Your jump and training is completed in one day
  • You will be harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times
  • You will be jumping from at least 10,000 feet
  • You will then free-fall down to 5,000 feet – falling through the air at 120 mph.
  • After the parachute is deployed you will ride the parachute down to the ground – you will be taught how to steer onto the drop zone
  • The landing will be controlled by your instructor

When can I jump?

Your jump will take place on Saturday 8th December at Brackley Airfeild. Leukaemia Care will let you know your arrival time and how to get there closer to the time.

 

Where is the airfield?

The airfield is in Brackley, nr Oxford. Once you have registered you have received your confirmation email, you will receive full confirmation details, including a map and directions to the airfield, at a later date.

Are there any restrictions on age or health?

For a tandem skydive you must be at least 16 years old and weigh less than 15 stone on the day. Those under the age of 18 will need the medical form signed by a parent or guardian; those aged 40 and over, or those with a medical condition, will need it signed by their doctor.

The principal medical restrictions are diabetes, epilepsy, fits, recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease, mental illness and some cases of asthma. You will be required to sign a medical form before your jump declaring your fitness to take part – this will be sent to you upon receipt of your reservation form but is also available on request.

What about insurance?

You will automatically be covered for up to £2,000,000 third party insurance but this will not cover you for personal injury. Should you wish to take out cover for personal injury you should arrange this through your own broker.
