Skydive for Rainbows
THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT. BUT WE DO HAVE A SKYDIVE IN JULY 2024
Take a leap of faith and feed the thrill-seeker hiding within, by taking part in a charity tandem skydive for Rainbows.
For many, skydiving is a once in a lifetime experience, giving you the chance to freefall 10,000ft and reach speeds of up to 120mph. It’s also an amazing way to fundraise for us… and what’s perfect about this challenge is that you can take part wherever and whenever you want; with no experience required!
Please note that for tandem skydives there is a MAXIMUM WEIGHT (fully clothed) of 95 kg (15 stone) or 83 kg if you are less than 163cm (5ft 4in). This limit is in place for your own safety and that of our instructors. For a tandem skydive in the UK you must be a minimum age of 16. Anybody who is under 18 years old will need a parent or guardian who can also sign the forms.
When you take part in the tandem skydive for Rainbows, we’ll be with you every step of the way to help with your fundraising.

Is there somewhere for spectators to go?
There is a large spectator area at Skydive Langar along with picnic benches in an ideal location for your friends and family to watch you in action. There is also a Café onsite available to purchase food and drinks.
What should I wear to Skydive?
Ensure that your clothes are comfortable, something that you can move around in easily. If it is a cold day, wrap up warm and bring a pair of gloves.
What happens if the weather is too bad to skydive?
In accordance with British Skydiving regulations, we must operate within strict safety limits with regards to cloud cover and wind speeds. If the weather is deemed unsuitable for tandem skydiving you will be given the opportunity to re-schedule your booking for another time at your convenience.
Should I eat before I jump?
Absolutely, eat as normal. We always advise everyone to eat before they jump. Adrenaline does not like empty stomachs!
Will I receive any training before I jump?
You will receive a safety briefing with an instructor before you jump. They will cover all aspects of the skydive with you including the equipment and what to expect. This can take approximately 10 – 15 minutes.
