Skydive for NKH Research

Raise funds for NKH Research and skydive for FREE! Jumps available to book at 18 airfields across the UK with various days and times to choose from, all year round.

Challenge yourself to jump from an aircraft at a whopping 13,000 feet and plunge down to earth at speeds of over 120mph and help the Mikaere Foundation improve the lives of children and young people throughout the UK who live with Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia – a rare and terminal neurometabolic disorder.

A Tandem skydive is the easiest and most popular of all skydives. It requires only 30 minutes of training before you then jump-strapped to your instructor! The BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor does all of the hard work for you, allowing you to enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying through the clouds from over 10,000 feet at up to 120 mph! It is a truly unforgettable experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Skyline?
Skyline is our skydiving partner, who specialise in organising fundraising events for charities. If you have any questions about doing a skydive, please phone 020 7424 5522 and they will be happy to help. 

How does it work?
You raise at least £395 – £450 (depending on location)  in aid of the Mikaere Foundation by asking your family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you. You’ll need to set up a fundraiser on your preferred fundraising platform, such as justgivinggofundme or facebook. If you raise over and above your fundraising target, your  exhilarating freefall parachute jump is FREE! Every penny you raise over the minimum will be further supporting kids with NKH.

When and where can I jump?
You can jump from any of the 20 skyline airfields around the UK (subject to availability) whenever it suits you! View the locations here.

What are the age and health restrictions?
For a tandem skydive you must be at least 16 years old and under 15 stone in weight. Please note some centres have lower weight limits – please contact skyline for details.

You may not be able to participate if you have diabetes, epilepsy, fits, recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease, mental illness or some forms of asthma – please contact Skyline for advice.

Am I covered by insurance?
Skyline has third-party insurance of up to £2,000,000 but this will not cover you for personal injury.

What happens if I don’t raise the minimum sponsorship?
Unfortunately, The Mikaere Foundaton will not be able to authorise your jump and you will not be able to participate.
