ParachutingTwo people tandem parashuting

If you’ve ever wanted to fall through the air at 120 miles an hour, here’s your chance!

We offer fundraising tandem skydives at over 20 airfields across the UK, through our partner operator Skyline Events, and if you raise enough in sponsorship, you will get your jump for free.

No experience is required and you can train and complete your jump in just one day.

You’ll jump from 13,000ft (two miles high) and freefall down to 5,000ft, before riding the parachute to the ground and steering yourself into the drop zone.

Safety is paramount and you’ll be harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times. 

Click here to find out more, then select Macular Society from the drop-down list of medical charities, to fundraise for us.

Please note: our skydivers are asked to pay a £70 registration fee and raise a minimum of £395 in sponsorship. This covers the skydive costs and a minimum sponsorship amount, which helps to fund our vital support services and further research into macular disease.
