As Skydiving is a weather dependant activity, efficiency was key to ensure as many people got to jump as possible with the morning clear skies.

Organising 100+ skydivers to have a commemoration jump in November is no mean feat.

This represents one of GoSkydive’s largest charity bookings. 55 managed to complete their jump on the day with the rest rescheduling.

Emily Wise - GoSkydive Charity Account Manager said: “This is one of our largest charity skydive days. We managed to jump 55 people who all conquered their fears and did something amazing. GoSkydive are the ideal partner for charities whose fundraisers who have never jumped before.”
