14,000ft Tandem Skydive

Have you ever jumped out of a plane 14,000ft above Salisbury Plains?

If not, then 2022 is your year to do it! Register now for our military-grade tandem 14,000ft skydive run by The Army Parachute Association in aid of Care for Veterans. No experience needed.

All proceeds will support the provision of care and rehabilitation for disabled ex-armed forces personnel.

The Army Parachute Association works to the exceptionally high safety standards of the British Army as well as those of British Skydiving (the industry’s governing body).  Their facilities cater for the tandem student and also their supporters and have a spectator area very close to the tandem landing area.

Date: Saturday 6 August 2022

Time: Time slots start from 8am and run until dusk

Who can take part? The minimum age for skydiving is 16 with parental consent. There is no upper age limit for tandem students although everyone will need to read thoroughly the Tandem Certificate of Medical Fitness (you can now self-certify if fit and healthy).  This can be found and downloaded from the APA’s Forms Page.

Location: Netheravon Airfield (get directions) in central Wiltshire, approximately 11 miles west of Salisbury.

Is it safe? Skydiving is an extremely well regulated sport. All the instructors are very experienced and hold British Skydiving (BS) qualifications. The equipment used is the best available and is maintained to very high standards. The aircraft used operate under Civil Aviation Authority regulations. Skydiving will only take place when the weather conditions are suitable.

Scared of heights? Lots of people who say they have a fear of heights quite happily jump out of a plane every year. Skydiving is nothing like standing on the edge of a tall building and looking down; anyone would feel nervous in that situation! When you are in the aircraft you are firmly attached to a Tandem Instructor giving you all the security you need.
