  • Exclusive Myton Skydive 25th July 2020 (Rearranged April Date)


    If you are interested in taking on the challenge of a lifetime why not choose to join our #TeamMyton skydive day and do an exhilarating 10,000 feet freefall parachute jump in aid of The Myton Hospices?

     

    Our group skydive days take place at Hinton skydive centre in Brackley. The cost to book your place is just £70 (booking deadline is January 2020 to secure a guaranteed place, after this date places will be booked based on airfield availability).

     

    You then need to raise a minimum of £325 (£200 of this will cover the cost of your skydive on the day)


    You can also choose to self fund your skydive and pay £200 to jump on the day (£70 booking fee still applies) and raise a minimum of £125 for Myton.

     

    Taking on this once in a lifetime challenge will be helping Myton raise vital funds to keep our services free of charge for our patients and families.

    How is the £395 broken down?


    The breakdown of the amounts is as follows:

    £70 booking fee – participant to pay on booking

    £200 jump cost to the airfield – we will cover this cost for you once you hit your £395 target!

    £125 - donation to The Myton Hospices.

    Any amount over your complete total of £395 will also come directly to helping Myton Hospice – so please aim high!

     

    Can I jump on another day?


    If you are unable to jump on the organised date please contact Skyline on 020 7424 5500 to discuss the possibility of jumping on an alternative date with Skyline.

    Where is the airfield?


    The airfield is situated 15 miles north of Oxford.  Once your reservation form has been received and processed, full confirmation details will be sent to you, including a map and directions to the airfield.

    Are there any restrictions on age or health?


    For a tandem skydive you must be at least 16 years old and be under 15 stone in weight. Please note some centres have different weight limits - please contact Skyline for details. The weight restriction for Hinton Airfield is 15 stone.

    The principal medical restrictions are diabetes, epilepsy, fits, recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease, mental illness and some cases of asthma. You will be required to sign a medical form before your jump declaring your fitness to take part - this will be sent to you upon receipt of your reservation form but is also available on request. Those under the age of 18 will need the medical form signed by a parent or guardian; those aged 40 and over, or those with a medical condition, will need it signed by their doctor.

    Pre-existing physical conditions will not necessarily prevent you from taking part but please inform Skyline of any physical condition as this may affect the location of your jump. If you are in any doubt then please contact us for further information.

    What about insurance?


    You will automatically be covered for up to £2,000,000 third party insurance but this will not cover you for personal injury. Should you wish to take out cover for personal injury you should either arrange this through your own broker or you can contact Skyline on the number below and we will send you a Personal Insurance Form.

    You will be required to pay your sponsorship money of £395 to The Myton Hospices up to two weeks before the date of your jump.

  • Jane Shakespeare took on the September Skydive in aid of Myton and shares her experience below:



    "It was the most glorious day on Wednesday 2nd October and I was very excited if a little apprehensive of what was to come. I was paired with Geoff and instantly felt in safe hands, although, I think I'd have felt in safe hands with any of the instructors, all the staff were extremely professional and friendly. I liked that Geoff had been Skydiving for 35 years! He’d jumped out of a plane thousands of times so I knew he knew what he was doing."

     

    "On the day, I just went with the flow and enjoyed the moment. I actually don’t think realisation of what I was doing hit me until I was falling through the clouds at 140 mph. It was really amazing! For anyone who is considering doing a Skydive, I thoroughly recommend it, we only live once, and I wouldn’t want to have got to the end of my life thinking I wish I’d done that! It’s truly an amazing and exhilarating experience! You’ll love it! and raise money for a worthwhile cause at the same time."
