Challenges yourself for Us

Tandem Sky Dive for Sporting Force SKYDIVE ACADEMY LIMITED at PETERLEE PARACHUTE CENTRE

If you’ve always fancied a skydive, but never got round to it, now’s the time! It’s easier than you may think……..

To skydive is one of the most exhilarating experiences of a lifetime and to jump from a perfectly good plane for a cause close to your heart is even more rewarding.  Looking out of the plane windows, you’ll be thinking, “am I really going to jump out of the door?” Then, you’re asked the most important question of the day. Are you ready to skydive? The answer is absolutely yes!

Sitting on the edge of the plane, yes really, the wind rushing by, blue sky above, the Durham Heritage Coast below, there’s only a couple of seconds before you’re off, out and skydiving!  The feeling is like no other and nothing can prepare you for the breath-taking rush of free fall. This is the closest you’ll get to flying. You’ll have about 30 seconds of free fall with a 10,000 feet skydive and when the parachute opens, the canopy ride down is the total opposite; a calming bliss. The views are unbelievable.

Once on the ground, the buzz will stay with you forever. Your smile and sense of achievement in facing your fear and doing it anyway is immeasurable.

The main aim is for you to be rewarded for your bravery in sponsorship for Sporting Force So please raise as much as you can.

The Tandem Skydive up to 10,000 feet for charity is £195.00 per person and requires a £35pp non refundable deposit to secure your place. Any money raised over the £195.00 goes directly to Sporting Force and allows us to help even more veterans create their new lives.  Please give me a ring or drop me an e mail and let’s get you booked in for the most intense, fulfilling experiences of your life.

Mount Kilimanjaro Trek 23rd of Feb to 4th of March 2018

Climb the highest freestanding mountain in the world! Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent at 5896m. Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains; huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit, spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally.

Our trek takes the Machame route, allowing gradual acclimatisation to the altitude and an excellent chance of reaching the summit. We pass through thick forest, moorland and scree en route to Uhuru Peak, the highest point. This is a challenging trek at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world.

Cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, 12th to 24th of June 2018
