Skydiving & Zipline
Test your bravery and make your fundraising efforts unique with a skydive or zipline!
As well as being a real adrenaline boost for yourself, taking part in a charity skydive or zipline is a unique and exciting way of raising money for Cyfannol. Skydiving or ziplining is often on many people’s bucket lists so why not combine that dream with goodwill by doing it in the name of Cyfannol?
Skydive Swansea is the only skydiving location in south Wales and offers two different kinds of skydives for you to choose from with beautiful views of:
You will experience the thrill of freefall & enjoy a high-performance canopy ride whilst attached to a fully qualified instructor. On arrival after some paperwork, you will be taken through all the training required for you to do your skydive. This includes a talk about the equipment to be used, aircraft orientation as well as covering what you can expect in freefall & finally the position you need to adopt for landing. The training takes about 40 minutes & the instructors will be pleased to answer any questions that you may have.
For your jump they will provide you with a jumpsuit, gloves, goggles and headgear. Next you will be fitted into the dual harness by their instructors.
You will be jumping from up to 12,000 feet. It takes around 18 minutes for the aircraft to reach altitude so you will have time to relax & enjoy the spectacular views.
Once at altitude, you are ready to go! You will be freefalling at 120mph for about 45 seconds. Your instructor will deploy the parachute by 5,000 feet. The parachute has dual controls so you can aid the instructor by spiralling the parachute around the sky.
Your instructor will take control of the parachute for the landing. All in all, it is an experience guaranteed to take your breath away!
To commemorate your skydive you will be presented with a certificate at the end of the jump.
How amazing does that sound!
Experience a different type of tandem where you exit from a lower altitude of 7,000 feet instead of our usual 12,000 feet. A popular choice for on a budget for those wishing to try before embarking on the higher tandem.
Training is to the same high standard as their regular tandem skydives. On arrival at the parachute centre after some paperwork you will be taken through all the training required for you to do your skydive. This will include the equipment to be used, aircraft orientation as well as covering what you can expect in freefall and finally the position you need to adopt for landing. This briefing and training generally takes 40 minutes & the instructors will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
For your skydive you will be provided with a jump suit, gloves, goggles & headgear. Next you will be fitted into your harness by your instructor.
Once inside the aircraft you will be attached to your instructor. You will still experience that huge rush of adrenaline as you see the door open at 7,000 feet & you move towards the edge of the aircraft. Momentarily suspended outside before you exit.
Your instructor will deploy the parachute within seconds and by about 5,000 feet you’ll be under a Ram Air Tandem Parachute spiralling through the sky. The parachute has dual controls & you can aid the instructor in steering the parachute to make the most of the stunning views over the beautiful Gower Peninsula. Your instructor will take complete control of the landing after about 5 minutes, guaranteed to take your breath away!
To commemorate your skydive experience you’ll be presented with a certificate of achievement.
We’ll be asking you to raise at least £395.00, which will cover £230 for you to skydive. £50 deposit is required at the time of booking. Leaving on the day you arrive to jump £180 to pay then £165 or more goes to the Cyfannol depending on how much you collect.
If you are looking to collect donations to pay for the skydive, we suggest using a sponsorship form to collect donations so you can allocate some donations to cover the cost. However, there is also the option to pay for your skydive yourself to check it off you bucket list and then all your donations will go to Cyfannol.
