This event is postponed until further notice

It should have taken place on 29th March in London but due to COVID19 was unable to be held. However, we are encouraging our participants to complete Local Landmarks on their own and by following Government guidelines on social isolation and exercise.

This will be a great way to keep your sponsors happy and to keep you fit during this unprecedented period.

Get the thrill of a lifetime with a 12,000 feet drop

A Tandem Skydive is an amazing experience which allows you to jump out of a plane securely attached to a very experienced Skydiving Instructor.

After a thorough briefing lasting about 30 minutes, the jump is made from 12,000 feet and includes a freefall of 30-40 seconds before your instructor opens your parachute. You will be given an opportunity to steer however the instructor remains in control at all times.

Go online to view a video.

Where does the jump take place?

At Headcorn Airfield right in the heart of Kent with incredible views of the South East corner of England, the south coast of Essex and the northern coast of France.
