Take the leap and skydive for St John’s. Experience an unforgettable adrenaline rush and enable people in your community to live well for longer.

About the Event

We have partnered with Skyline Events to bring you this adrenaline-fuelled challenge, a tandem skydive for St John’s. You will have a 30-minute training session before being strapped to a highly qualified instructor who will be your guide throughout. Your 120-mph freefall down to 5,000 feet will be the experience of a lifetime before your parachute is deployed, so you can peacefully float back down to earth whilst enjoying the view.

You can skydive for St John’s at one of the 21 available locations across the UK with various days to choose from. Whichever location your choose, it is set to be an incredible experience.

Following the challenge, you will receive a certificate from the airfield to prove that you have completed a ‘two-mile high’ Tandem Skydive and will be able to purchase official photography and videos of your jump.

Will you face your fears and enable people in your community to live well for longer? Book your skydive today!
