Are you brave enough?

Join our team of AAT Skydivers on the 26th September in Lancashire and take on one of the highest tandem skydives in the UK.

Feel the adrenaline rush from 3 miles high! You'll experience a full 60 seconds of freefall and reach speeds of approximately 120mph. Join us for the most exciting day ever with a group of other brave Aplastic Anaemia Trust fundraisers from across the UK. 

The tandem jumps are with a fully qualified British Parachute Association instructor and are from 15,000ft. You don't need any experience to take part. The jump will be taking place in Lancashire at the 'Black Knights Parachute Centre'. It's not far from the M6 and easily accessible from Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds. See their website for more details.

Cost and your commitment

The cost of your skydive is £255. You can choose whether to fund this yourself, or via a minimum fundraising commitment...

Option 1: Pay £55

You will pay £55 and receive a t-shirt (optional) to wear on jump day.

When signing up to the skydive you will be agreeing to raise a minimum of £400 [£200 will cover the remaining cost of the skydive].

At least £200 must be raised 5 weeks prior to the event. We are sure this won't be a problem, but if by the 8th August you haven't raised £200, you will be given the option to pay the additional to cover the cost of the skydive. 

You need to be open with people donating to your page that some of your fundraising will cover the cost of your skydive. You can do this by adding a line to your fundraising page that says "I'm funding some of the cost of my skydive, and some will be funded from my fundraising, by arrangement with the charity."

Option 2: Pay £255

You will be covering the cost of the skydive, and you will receive a free t-shirt. All skydivers are expected to fundraise for the AAT, but if you choose this option there will be no minimum fundraising target.

Jump day 

Timings will not be confirmed until approximately four weeks before the day.

Should our skydive not take place due to poor weather/ aircraft technical issues or extreme circumstances, we will need to reschedule.
