Ever wanted to jump out of a plane? Whether you are a budding dare devil, seasoned adrenaline junkie or just fancy the challenge of a lifetime then look no further for an incredible experience and a great way to fundraise!

For our rescheduled Skydive we have managed to secure 3 additional discounted charity places for Saturday 5th September 2020 at 11am. Please get in touch below if you are interested in taking a place.  

In support of North East Autism Society you can take on a tandem parachute jump with Skydive Academy at Peterlee Parchute Centre. They are located at Shotton Airfield, 10 miles east of Durham city & 2 miles west of Peterlee. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a tandem skydive is unlikely to be forgotten! You will be falling at speeds in the order of 120-180 mph.

On the day of your jump 

Registration, Documentation and Training can take in the order of 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Participants, their friends & family should not rule out the possibility that adverse conditions may delay or postpone their jumps so requiring additional attendance at the Centre to jump - poor weather on the first visit is no guarantee of good weather on subsequent visits.
