If you have set up a Just Giving or similar account, all the money goes directly to the charity. If you want to take your costs out of the funds raised, you will have to agree this with the charity before proceeding, or collect some of the sponsored money by cash using the old conventional sponsor form. Either way whoever is sponsoring you needs to know that you are taking part of the proceeds to pay for the jump.You can either approach the charity in question for a sponsor form or we can print this generic sponsor form
We allocate arrival times throughout the day to check in. It is important that you arrive on time. A Tandem Instructor will spend about 20 minutes giving you relevant training. If you are late, it could have a knock on effect by extending the scheduled jump time. The Tandem Instructor has a very tight schedule that includes jumping, briefing and packing his parachute for the next jump. Other factors that could potentially effect the scheduled jump time include, change in weather, coordinating a videographer, the plane and numerous other things.
Static Line Solo Course
The course starts at 8:00 AM and lasts for about 8 hours. Your jump will be made on the same day as your training, weather permitting, usually between 5:00 pm and sunset.
There are many variables we must deal with to provide a safe skydiving environment. Sometime circumstances may change unpredictably; necessitating last minute changes to exactly when you will jump.
Therefore we can never guarantee that anyone will definitely jump at a given time.
