Calvert Trust Kielder staff member takes on Tandem Skydive

Take on a sponsored 10,000ft tandem skydive for #TeamCalvert and give a disabled person a life changing experience on 21 April 2017.


What's it All About

Tandem parachute jumping is the quickest easiest way to experience free fall. All you need to do is turn up, kit up and you'll be experiencing free fall as soon as possible. After a short briefing you will be introduced to your fully qualified BPA instructor so you can get to know each other. Next you will be taken on a lovely scenic ride up to jump at altitude where you will experience free fall, before being gently piloted back to terra-firma under canopy.


It is essential that you read up on the risks and restrictions involved in the jump. Check out the Skydive Academy website for full details and also the British Parachute Association website


What will it cost?

 The total cost is £195. A non-refundable deposit of £35 is required to book your place.  You will then need to pay the remaining £160 by 21 March 2017. We recommended a minimum fundraising target of £350.
