Fancy throwing yourself out of a plane at 3,000 feet? It is called a static jump because you will be attached to a 'static line' that automatically opens the parachute when you exit the aircraft. 



This is a two-day course, spending the first day training and familiarising yourself with the equipment and aircraft, then taking the jump itself on the second day. 



If the weather prevents you from jumping, your training is valid for at least two months, giving you plenty of time to return to the centre to complete your jump. Completion of this training course is the first step to becoming a fully qualified skydiver and all students receive a British Parachute Association approved certificate.

How does your fundraising help?

Every 15 minutes someone loses their sight. However, right now many people receive no support at all when given this news. We want to change that.

We’re on a mission to make sure every UK hospital has a dedicated Sight Loss Advisor. Your fundraising will help us be there when people need us most, as we grow our network of expert advisors and reach everyone who needs our emotional and practical support.
