Have you ever wanted to do a skydive? You could join other brave souls in summer 2020 for a dedicated tandem skydive day in support of LUPUS UK with the Red Devils!
The Red Devils are the world famous British Army parachute display team. Formed in 1964, they are the official parachute display team of the British Army and The Parachute Regiment. The team is currently 15 men strong – all full time serving paratroopers, who return to combat duties when required during their posting with the team.
To take part you would need to pledge to raise a minimum of what we expect will be around £500 for LUPUS UK. This fundraising will cover the cost of your skydive.
On the day one of the team’s 6 Tandem Instructors, with over 10,000 parachute descents between them, will brief you, and then hook you up to board a twin-engine plane before rising to a height of around 13,000ft in approximately 15 minutes. On exiting the aircraft you will freefall for around 40 seconds reaching speeds of 120mph, before your instructor will deploy your tandem parachute at around 5,000ft, bringing you to a safe landing.
