SKYDIVE for CHT!

June 13th, 2017

SUNDAY 20th AUGUST 2017

This summer, the sky is the limit as you take to the air in our Tandem Charity Skydive.  It is one of the most exciting and exhilarating things you will ever do.

Jumping 13,000ft and freefalling through blue skies for 7,000ft until your canopy opens and you glide to the ground surrounded by the most wonderful views of Northern Ireland.  An experience not to be missed!

 

We are delighted to team up with Moonjumper International for our Tandem Skydive were you will be attached to an instructor using a dual hardness.

The Moonjumper sky centre is an affiliated British Parachute Association centre and all instructors are BPA registered. 

When and where it is taking place?

The jump is scheduled for Sunday 20th August.  The jump is totally weather dependent and may be subject to change. 

The Tandem Skydive will take place at the Wild Geese Centre in Garvagh, just outside Coleraine.  Please note that if you wish to take part a full day will need to be kept free. All participants will be required to attend in the morning and will jump as soon as the weather is suitable during that day. Friends and Family are welcome to spectate.
