Imagine the excitement of falling through the air from 10,000 feet up at 120 mph. Then, as the canopy opens, the experience will turn to one of calm and peacefulness as you glide down, savouring the amazing views on your descent.
Raise a certain amount of money for BEN and you won't have to imagine any longer! You'll be able to do it for free!
Choose from three types of jump:
freefall parachute jump (also known as tandem skydive)
Raise £395 to do the jump for free.
You will fall through the air for several thousand feet whilst harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times throughout the descent. This is less demanding than the traditional ‘static line' jump (below) as your training is completed in one day and your instructor will be in control of your landing.
static line parachute jump
Raise £360 to do the jump for free.
This jump is called a static line jump because from the moment you step into the aircraft you will be securely attached to a ‘static line' which is designed to automatically open your parachute for you as you exit the aircraft. You do this jump solo!
accelerated freefall - solo skydive!
Raise £535 to do the jump for free.
For the more adventurous out there. You'll have a full day's ground training from two qualified instructors before you skydive solo from 10,000 feet.

It's completely up to you and as long as you raise the minimum sponsorship money you will jump for FREE!
