Reach for the sky

Skydive with Kent under your feet!

Sunday 14th July 2024 | Headcorn Airfield, Maidstone, Kent

This is it! We have joined with Skyline Events to bring you this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Your tandem skydive, strapped to a fully qualified, expert instructor, will have you descend into the pure open sky. As you exit the aircraft, you dive straight into an incredible 30-40 seconds of freefall time, soaring through the sky at rapid speed of up to 120mph! By this point, your adrenaline will be at its absolute peak…

At 5,000ft your parachute will open, and the beauty of Kent will come into view. The high-octane thrill of the freefall now becomes relaxed and inspiring. You will be floating through the sky as you begin your descent. Make sure you enjoy the view, as you might never get to experience anything like this again!

A bucket list favourite

“A skydive has been on my bucket list for years and I thought, what better way to do it than raising money for the Hospice in the Weald?

The Hospice is very close to my heart as my father-in-law spent his final days there and my sister-in-law works there too. The support and empathy that the Hospice provides to families during such a distressing time is amazing.

I am glad that my skydive can help in a small way to support this beautiful place. I can honestly say that the skydive was the scariest thing I have ever done! My family thought I had gone mad for agreeing to do it!

However, the feeling once you jump out the plane is exhilarating and very emotional. I would say to anyone who is thinking about it to do it before you get too old!” – Jane, who participated in our Skydive day in 2023 and absolutely loved her experience.
