BBC Radio Devon Air Ambulance Appeal tandem skydive! Situated at Dunkeswell, near Honiton, we are carrying on a proud tradition of sport parachuting at the airfield, which started in 1964. Affiliated to the British Parachute Association we are setting the standard for safety, ensuring that you can enjoy the most exhilarating, breathtaking, adrenalin pumping moment of your life with complete confidence.
Do something amazing and tandem Skydive for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust! A tandem is an easy and enjoyable way to experience the thrills of skydiving without having to learn how. The exhilarating freefall combined with the peace and tranquillity of the parachute ride, makes tandem skydiving a unique and eye-opening way to raise money for DAAT.
What happens on the day? You will meet your instructor who will prepare you for your tandem skydive Climb onboard the aircraft, where your instructor will tighten your harness as you ride up 15,000ft (or 10,000ft like other centres, if you chose that height) Once at altitude, the door will open; you will feel a rush of air & noise as you edge towards the door A few words of encouragement will come from you instructor AND.... you’re off!! You will experience speeds of an adrenaline pumping 120mph while freefalling up to two miles!! As the large canopy unfolds, you will become aware of the sudden peace, quiet and tranquillity You may even be able to help your Instructor steer the parachute around the sky before gliding back to the airfield
