Gympanzees Skydive Sunday

Sun 2nd July 2023

Our jumpers will experience the sheer exhilaration of free falling for 60 seconds at speeds of up to 125mph. 

Taking the leap on this epic day is a giant leap forward to creating a more inclusive world for children and young people with disabilities. 

#JumpForGympanzees

The Challenge

Date: Sunday 2nd July 2023
Location: GoSkyDive, Old Sarum Park, Salisbury, SP4 6EB
Registration fee: £50
Fundraising target: £1000

You will be jumping with Go Skydive, the UK’s leading skydiving company where safety is there no 1 priority. 

On arrival you will be greeted by the team who will then give you an introduction and explain what to expect from your tandem skydive. 

Next, you will receive specialist training by an experienced tandem master in a simulated training environment.  Once you are kitted up you will head out onto the airfield to your plane where your instructor will make some final checks. 

Once you reach altitude brace yourself for the most exhilarating experience of your life! 

This is amazing, you will literally fall through the air and rush towards the earth at around 125mph for 60 seconds before your instructor deploys the parachute at 5,000ft. 

You can then enjoy the magical ride back down to earth, all whilst raising money for Gympanzees!

Your £50 reservation fee covers all event organisation, skydive instructors and industry leading parachute equipment.

You can also capture your adventure on camera. Video and photography packages are available to book once you have booked your tandem skydive. (Additional fee required, not covered by Gympanzees)

Alongside this, our fundraising target is £1000 per participant.

Spaces are expected to fill up fast for this event so now is the time to sign up! 

You need to be at least 16 to do a tandem skydive, if you are aged between 16 and 18 you will need a parent or legal guardian to sign to give their consent.

GoSkydive’s oldest jumper to date was 100 years old – so age isn’t a boundary for them if it isn’t for you. As long as you are reasonably fit and healthy then you should be OK to tandem skydive. On the day you’ll need to declare your fitness by signing a declaration form.

“A permanent Gympanzees would be a lifeline. Somewhere he could go and be himself. I’ve seen him become more relaxed every time we visit. We’d love somewhere like this permanently, somewhere accessible, cost-effective for families and a safe space.”
