Skyline's Tandem World Record Attempt

We have ten places for SUDEP Action supporters to attempt Skyline's Tandem World Record.

Imagine yourself exiting from the door of an aircraft from over two and half miles up, and freefalling at a speed of 120mph through the clouds, before gliding back down to your envious supporters on the ground below. Skydiving is an unbelievable and exhilarating rush like no other and with no experience required - it’s your opportunity to reach for the skies and be part of a World Record attempt! 

A tandem skydive is the most popular and frequently chosen type of jump by novice and first time thrill seekers – you don’t need any previous experience at all to do this jump! You’ll be attached to a fully qualified instructor who controls your jump from start to finish; they will do all the hard work for you, allowing you to catch your breath and enjoy the ride!

Before the skydive begins, your instructor will provide you with a training session, show you all the equipment that is used and talk you through what’s going to happen, allowing you to feel comfortable and at ease with your upcoming adventure. 

After the training session is over you’ll prepare to fly up to over two and half miles above the ground with 4-6 like-minded tandem skydivers - this is where your adventure really starts to get real!

Once you’re at the correct altitude, your instructor will let you know it’s time to move over to the exit door of the plane so you can jump. 

To take part in a jump you will need to pay a deposit of £70. We then ask you to raise £395 in sponsorship money in order for you to jump for free and in turn we will receive an average donation of £140. In addition to this, every extra pound that you raise over the minimum comes straight to the charity, so please try to raise as much as you possibly can!  

The event takes place on June 17th, 2017. Our 10 places are reserved at Swindon’s Redlands Airfield. You can call Skyline on 020 7424 5500 to check to see how many SUDEP Action places are left prior to booking. Register by clicking here. Please email fundraising@sudep.org if you have any questions.

Please note, this is a Skyline World Record Attempt, not a Guinness World Record.
