Skydive - various dates and locations available

Charity sky diving is a fun way to raise funds for Momentum.

Take a leap of faith and do a truly hair-raising challenge for Momentum.

Our fundraisers have been promoting charity sky diving since Momentum's inception back in the mid 1990s.

Since then, many hundreds of people have sky dived for them - and every one of them has come back down to earth desperate to go straight back up - so good was the experience for them.

So how much is it? Its free, and this is how it works:

We ask you to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship money in order for you to jump for free (from £360 depending on the type of jump you choose) and in turn we will receive an average donation of £140.

In addition to this, every extra pound that you raise over the minimum comes straight to the charity, so please try to raise as much as you possibly can!

There are three different types of sky dive that you can do with Momentum:

10,000ft Tandem Sky dive - where you get a short instruction and then are strapped to a skydiving instructor for a freefall at 120mph for a few thousand feet before the canopy opens and your glide safely back to earth.  This tends to be the most popular option for first-timers.

Static Line Sky dive - Train on the first day and then jump on the second day from your attached 'static line' which automatically opens your parachute when you jump out of the plane from 3,000ft.

AFF - Accelerated Free Fall - Get a full day's instruction and then launch yourself into your solo jump from 10,000ft.  Freefall for a few thousand feet at 120mph and then open your canopy for a gentle glide back to earth.

Across Scotland and England there are a choice of 25 jump centres, from St Andrews to Cornwall, so there's bound to be one near you. Sky dives happen every Saturday or Sunday throughout the whole year. And there is a free t-shirt for every skydiver!

It's easy to arrange a jump. You can view the online Skydive information pack here.
