Jump all year round

Calling all adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers! Take the plunge and raise funds for blind and partially sighted people.

Harnessed to a professional parachute instructor, you will free fall for several thousand feet before deploying the parachute. You will spend the day with a professional trainer, preparing until you are ready to take the leap.

This jump is also much less demanding than the traditional static line jump as the jump and training are completed in one day and your instructor will be in control of your landing.
