On the day

  • 08:00-09:00 | Usual arrival time followed by 30 minutes of training.

Jumps are weather dependent, so it's not usually possible to specify a jump time prior to the day.

You will receive an arrival time once you are confirmed with the airfield – this is when you will check in and receive your training for the jump. The jump time would depend on the weather and how many other people are booked in that day. There is a small chance you could wait all day until you jump. The airfields do operate a first come first served basis – so the earlier you arrive the earlier you will jump!

  • Equipment
  • Guides

When you join Team MS-UK, you'll be supported in the run up to your jump with:

  • Ideas and materials to help reach your fundraising target
  • MS-UK t-shirt to wear with pride before the challenge and on jump day itself

  • Fundraising support
  • Fundraising materials
  • Submit fundraising up to 1 month after event

I did a Tandem Skydive to raise money... What an amazing experience. Emily

What a truly amazing day, the feeling of falling though the air is like nothing I have ever experienced before in my life. My instructor was great - made me feel very relaxed. Cheryl

It was an absolutely brilliant experience, probably the best thing I've ever done, I couldn't stop smiling afterwards! Caitlin

My husband and I both did our tandem skydives .. to raise funds. Words just can not express the amazing buzz you get from leaping out a plane and falling through the sky at 120mph! Absolutely AWESOME!! Huge thanks to our amazing instructors who made our day an unforgettably brilliant experience! Gina and Sean

I have always been terrified of heights but thought that doing it for charity would be worth it. The whole experience was amazing and the view was breath taking! I would recommend skydiving to anyone who is thinking of doing it. Katie

The view, when the parachute went up, was absolutely breathtaking. Rebekah

There are no words that can express the exhilaration and excitement that I experienced. I wanted to do this for the charity and help raise money to support people with MS in many ways. An amazing day, amazing memory.

An amazing experience, would recommend to anyone - brilliant!

When I asked my son why he wanted to do the skydive he said that he wanted to honour me and people like me who have to struggle daily with MS and it was the least he could do to help.

The sun was shining and at 14,000 ft, the views were spectacular. From this height, we had almost a full minute of free fall, (at approximately 120 mph) before the parachute deployed.  It was an unbelievable experience.  After landing, we all had the biggest grins on our faces!  What a thrill!
