Join us on Sunday 5th December 2021 for our very first Santa Skydive at Hinton-on-the-Hedges airfield!
You’ll be dashing through the sky on an exhilarating tandem ride as you and your fellow Myton Santa’s take on an unforgettable challenge all to raise vital funds for The Myton Hospices.
Free Santa suits will be provided for you...
to pick up at the airfield on the day but if you have your own costume that you’d like to wear (elves and reindeer welcome too) please let us know so we can double check its suitability for the jump!
As with our other Myton Skydives this is a tandem jump, which means you will be attached to an instructor who is in complete control throughout. All you need to do is hop on the sleigh and enjoy the ride!
The cost to book your place is just £70!
Once you’ve signed-up you will then need to raise a minimum of £355 sponsorship (£230 of this will cover the cost of your Skydive on the day with a minimum of £125 coming directly to The Myton Hospices).
Did you know...
you can also choose to self-fund your Skydive? Pay your £70 booking fee then £230 on the day of the jump. You can then raise a minimum of £125 for Myton*

How is the £425 broken down?
The breakdown of the amounts is as follows:
- £70 booking fee – participant to pay on booking
- £230 jump costs to the airfield – we will cover this cost once you hit your £355 fundraising target or alternatively you can self-fund and pay the £230 on the day.
- £125 donation to The Myton Hospices
Any amount over your fundraising target will also come directly to helping The Myton Hospices – so please aim high!
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 if you intend to take part from a different airfield. 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.
How do I book my place to jump?
Simply click the sign up link and follow the instructions online! Or request more information and we will send you a paper copy of the sign up form.
Paying your sponsorship money
You will be required to pay in your sponsorship money of £355 to The Myton Hospices up to two weeks before the date of your jump. If you are self-funding and paying the £230 on the day of the jump – you must let us know 6 weeks before you are due to jump.
