When?

Join our Jump Day on Saturday 4 May, or pick another weekend of your choice.

Where?

Hinton Airfield, Brackley, Northamptonshire.

What?

A tandem skydive, meaning you will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor.

How much?

A £70 deposit is payable, which can be taken out of your sponsorship money if you wish. We ask that you raise at least £500 in sponsorship, then the jump is free!

Still not sure?

  • You’ll be jumping with a trained professional and full training is given.
  • Jump alone, or get a team of friends, family or colleagues to book a place too.
  • We’ll support you every step of the way with your fundraising, and we’ll cheer you along on the day.
  • Friends and family are welcome to come along to provide moral support.
  • Think you’re too old? There is no upper age limit, but you might need a doctor’s note to confirm you are fit to jump. The oldest ever parachute jumper was 103!
  • At Age UK Solihull, we help over 10,000 older people each year, making sure they always have someone to turn to, whatever the challenges faced in later life. Your fundraising will help us continue our important work.
  • Jumps can be rescheduled if affected by weather.
