Ever wondered how it feels to fly?

Join the team of professional RAF skydive instructors at their home base, RAF Weston on the Green and raise funds for the RAF Association in the process!

Sign up to jump and you’ll have a fantastic day with the RAF, immersed in the world of military parachutists.

An experience like no other

When you join us for your tandem skydive you’ll spend the whole day with us. There’ll be interactive activities like parachute packing demo and formation skydive training for you to take part in and you’ll have the opportunity for a backstage style pass with our friendly professional instructors.

Bring your family and friends along too, or even make up a team to jump with your work colleagues. Your supporters can watch your jump from the dedicated viewing area.

When you sign up to jump we’ll send you a special RAFA Jumps fundraising pack to help you get the most of out our your fundraising journey. We’ll also come along on the day to cheer you on and hand out the cake.

Take to the skies

When it comes to the big moment we’ll gather you, and your team of supporters, to get ready for your tandem skydive.

Once on board the skydiving aircraft, you and your instructor will climb to a height of 13,000 feet while your family and friends cheer you from the ground.

Now it’s time to jump!

As you freefall you’ll feel the pure adrenaline pumping through your body and the air around you pulsing by. Once the parachute opens you can enjoy the peaceful course down and take in the phenomenal views.

Imagine doing all this and knowing that you’re raising funds for the RAF Association at the same time!

How your jump helps

Your once-in-a-lifetime experience can help us to create and maintain hundreds of really important services such as befriending and storybook wings for the people that we help.

If you have a fundraising page, you can link it to our dedicated JustGiving page so your supporters can see how their sponsorship helps us.
