60 seconds. 13,000ft. 125mph. Will you take the leap?
Book your boarding pass for a once in a lifetime experience. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, conquering a fear, or celebrating a milestone, get ready for the thrill of completing a charity tandem skydive for RUHX. Tick off the ultimate bucket list item with #TeamRUHX in support of health, happiness and wellbeing for everyone in Bath and beyond.
We’ve partnered with the friendly team at Netheravon Airfield, the home of the Army Parachute Association. You’ll be jumping over the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, where, if you’re lucky, you’ll catch a glimpse of the White Horses on the way down.
On the day, you’ll receive thorough ground-training from a tandem master to prepare you for your fall to earth. Board your plane and when it’s time to jump, you’ll be strapped securely to your tandem instructor before you exit the aircraft at 13,000ft. Experience an exhilarating freefall of over 40 seconds before your instructor deploys the main parachute and together you steer your way back to the drop zone for a gentle, controlled landing.
