About this challenge
Date: 16 September 2017
Registration fee: £50
Fundraising target: £395
Organiser: Skydive Buzz
Tandem skydiving is an easy and enjoyable way to experience the thrills of skydiving without having to learn how. The exhilarating freefall, combined with the peace and tranquillity of the parachute ride, makes tandem skydiving a unique experience you will never forget.
After a short briefing on arrival at the airfield, your qualified instructor will gear you up and together you will make your way to the aircraft. Once on board, you will be securely harnessed to your instructor and the flight will begin to 15,000 feet, your exit height. Enjoy the views on ascent as you will be able to see the three coastlines of South Devon, North Devon and across the Bristol Channel to South Wales, making the drop zone one of the most scenic in the country.
Once at altitude, the door will open and then, with your heart pumping and the view of distant fields below you, it’s off to freefall before a large square canopy unfolds above your head for steered descent to the landing area.
