What is the Santa Skydive?

The Santa Skydive is an exhilarating festive challenge which involves you soaring through the sky from 12,000ft in a Santa costume. The jump is taking place Sunday 11th December 2022.

What is a tandem jump like?

A tandem jump involves you being attached to a skydiving instructor, jumping from the plane before a parachute glides you back down to earth.

What’s the best way to fundraise?

Check out our fundraising guides for more ideas of things to do and ways to get the word out about your amazing challenge.

Can we skydive as a team?

Absolutely! Each participant must fill out their own registration form, but once booked in, we’ll make sure you and your fellow Santas jump in succession.

What time is my jump?

Your arrival time at Brackley Airfield will be sent to you in your confirmation email after you have booked. Jump times are very dependent on the weather.

I have additional access needs - can I still jump?

The airfield will look at each case individually, so please email info@skylineevents.co.uk and they can check for you. With any medical condition you will also need to have the medical form signed by a doctor.

What are the age and weight restrictions?

Brackley Airfield have a weight limit of 15 stone. The minimum age for the tandem skydive is 16.

Will the skydive go ahead if the conditions are bad?

The one aspect of your day that is out of our control is definitely the weather – if the forecast is looking bad in the days leading up to your jump, you may be contacted by the airfield to reschedule. However, if you have not heard anything to the contrary, your jump will still be going ahead

What do I wear?

The airfield will provide you with a jumpsuit on the day. You just need to wear comfortable clothing underneath and suitable tie up shoes (trainers or something similar would be ideal).

We recommend layering up on a colder day and wearing ski gloves. We will provide you with an optional Santa suit to wear over the top of your jumpsuit.

When do I get my Santa suit?

Once you have registered to jump, we will be in touch to ask for your size to order your suit. We will send your suit out as soon as we can.

Can I wear glasses or contact lenses?

You can wear both of these. The airfields will have a range of goggles made to fit over glasses.
