Extreme challenges

Strapped to your expert instructor, you’ll exit the aircraft at 10,000ft, freefalling at speeds of up to 120mph! Then at 5,000ft your parachute opens and the high-octane thrill of the freefall now becomes more relaxed and inspiring. You’ll slowly descend to the ground, landing back at the airfield with a huge smile knowing you’ve completed an incredible challenge for Retina UK.

How does it work?

Choose your airfield

  • These skydives are organised by Skyline Events – there’s around 20 skydiving centres to choose from. Find your nearest airfield.
  • All skydivers are required to complete a medical form before their jump. This form will help to identify whether you need to speak to a suitably qualified healthcare professional before taking part. We also advise that should you have any concerns or questions relating to your health and taking on a skydive that you should seek expert advice before registering.
  • A tandem skydive is suitable for sighted, visually impaired and blind people alike. If you have any accessibility questions please contact Skyline at who will be able to raise your query directly with your chosen airfield.
