We are very excited to be working with Skydive Hibaldstow to give you the opportunity of a life time and make 2023 the year you tick skydiving off your bucket list!
Whether you want to fulfil a lifelong ambition, jump in memory of a loved one or push yourself out of your comfort zone, we are here to help every ‘leap’ of the way.
We are delighted to be hosting our next skydive event on Saturday 7th October.
You will be taking the leap of faith, jumping from 15,000 ft. Tandem skydiving allows you to experience the thrill of freefall skydiving without any extensive training and is our most popular UK skydiving course.
After a short tandem briefing, you will jump harnessed to the front of a fully qualified parachuting instructor from 15,000ft. From this height, you will enjoy one whole adrenaline-fuelled minute of freefall, reaching terminal velocity at 120mph.
Did you know – this is the highest tandem skydive in Europe!
Are there any restrictions to take part?
All skydivers must complete a medical declaration in order to take part. This is in addition to meeting the following requirements:
- Minimum Age: 16 years (With parental consent for 16/17 on two specific documents)
- Maximum Age: None (Subject to health)
- Minimum Height: 147cm * (approx. 4ft10)

- Maximum Weight: 100kg* (approx. 16st / 224lbs) Your weight in your own clothes and shoes
In addition to overall weight, BMI can affect your ability to jump. We regret that those with a BMI of 39+ are not suitable. Those with a BMI of 35+ will be subject to assessment. Please contact Skydive Hibaldstow for further clarification and they will be happy to talk you through it.
*Those under the minimum height and/or weight should arrive fifteen minutes early for a harness fitting.
Some medical conditions or injuries may prevent you from taking part. If you have any concerns regarding your physical or medical ability to take part, please consult your doctor. You should also advise us of any relevant conditions in advance, as well as letting your instructor know on the day. Asthmatics should take inhalers with them in the aircraft.
Any previous shoulder dislocations MUST be declared and discussed in advance.

How much does it cost?
To join us for this once in a lifetime experience, there is a £50 non refundable registration fee and we ask that you fundraise a minimum of £395 for Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Charity.
Of the £395 you raise, £180 will pay for your skydive and the rest will come to us to use to fund improvements to patient services, research projects, new equipment and more.
Anything you raise above this amount is a bonus!
We offer a self-funded option for the skydive at a cost of £180 to yourself. This is useful for those who are worried about meeting the minimum fundraising amount of £395.
By choosing the self-funded option, we ask that you instead fundraise a minimum £265 which will go directly towards helping us fund projects across our hospitals.
If you are interested in this option, please email email@example.com for clarification on how to pay.
You must fundraise a minimum of £180 sponsorship two weeks before your Skydive day to guarantee your skydive. Your remaining sponsorship can be paid after your skydive. This applies to both self-funded and non-self-funded options.
Please note: cancellations within 7 days of jumping will incurr a £25 charge to be paid to Skydive Hibaldstow.
How will we support you?
Once you are registered, we will support you all the way up to and including the event itself. Not only will you receive your own charity t-shirt to wear on the day, the individual skydiver who raises the most funds will also receive a FREE photo and video package as a keepsake.
Photo & Video packages can be purchased directly from Skydive Hibaldstow at an extra cost of £120 on the day or £99 in advance – please contact Skydive Hibaldstow to order your package.
We will also provide you with a digital fundraising pack filled with hints and tips on how to maximise your sponsorship and set up your JustGiving page.
Our Fundraising Team will be available to support your every ‘leap’ of the way and can also provide equipment such as collection tins, buckets and literature to support your fundraising efforts.
