Skydive @ Hinton Airfield
Sep 23 all-day
Skydive @ Hinton Airfield | Steane | England | United Kingdom


Families United Network are looking for adrenaline junkies looking to take on the challenge of jumping from a plane at 10,000ft, doing a tandem skydive.

What’s it like?

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph! Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below. Imagine being able to do this for FREE whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help a worthwhile charity! Stop imagining, it’s real and it’s happening all the time and you can be part of it…

If you are brave enough book your place here

You will need to pay a £40 registration fee to gaurantee your jump, then you will need to raise a minimum of £400 to cover the skydive and for Families United Network to receive approx £140 towards the services we offer families.  You don’t need to stop at £400 as every penny makes a big difference to the charity.

Then they’ll take on the 12ft fire pit in front of friends and family! Why not join as a team? Get your friends or work colleagues together for a great night for a great cause.

A previous fire walker for FUN has said that “it is an amazing once in a life time experience. The seminar before is really helpful and gives you great encouragement. I didn’t think i could do it without hurting myself but i was totally painfree after. I would do it again!
