FAQs about Skyline and your skydive

Who are Skyline

Skyline specialise in organising fundraising events for charities. If you have any questions about doing a skydive, please phone 020 7424 5522 and they will be happy to help. 

How does it work

All you must do is raise at least £395 in aid of Dementia UK by asking your family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you. You will be supported by Dementia UK throughout your fundraising journey. Every penny you raise over the minimum will be further supporting Dementia UK and giving you the chance to make an exhilarating freefall parachute jump for FREE! 

Where and when can I jump

The Dementia UK Skydive Day takes place on 10th September 2022, and you can jump from any of the airfields that Skyline provide (subject to availability). 

What are the age and health restrictions

For a tandem skydive you must be at least 16 years old and under 15 stone in weight. Please note some centres have lower weight limits – please contact skyline for details.  

You may not be able to participate if you have diabetes, epilepsy, fits, recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease, mental illness or some forms of asthma – please contact Skyline for advice. 

Am I covered by insurance

Skyline has third-party insurance of up to £2,000,000 but this will not cover you for personal injury. 

How do I book my place

Simply complete your booking online as soon as possible, and no later than the last booking date of 2nd June 2022 

What happens If I don’t raise the minimum sponsorship

Unfortunately, Dementia UK will not be able to authorise your jump and you will not be able to participate.
