The background to this post?
I won Top Adventure/Outdoor Blog in The Activity People Blogger Awards 2017 and could pick an activity of my choice as a prize.
And so, on Friday I ticked another item off the never-ending bucket list and so, thanks to Jump This, I was able to jump out of a perfectly working aircraft at 15,000ft over Old Sarum in WIltshire :)
Closer to my jump date I was offered the chance to include someone else at a reduced price, and so my brother came along for the ride, quite literally.
We arrived at Old Sarum Airfield at 0900 and had our induction, safety briefing and got kitted out. We also grabbed something to eat as jumping on an empty stomach is a big no-no!
We eventually got a break in the weather around midday and hopped on the plane!
I spoke to my instructor and he said that because one of our cameramen was jumpmaster and had to be on the aircraft til everybody was out, it meant that we got the free upgrade, basically.
I wasn't complaining. Extra skydiving time was ok with me!
We finally reached 15,000ft and shuffled across the floor of the aircraft, ready to jump!
I'll let the photo's do the talking!
I would 100% do it again and the guys at Go Skydive were absolutely brilliant!
Don't believe me? Watch for yourself ;)
The only thing I will add is that you should check with the company before you jump as some have strict medical guidelines. Previous injuries/medications etc will need a letter signing off from a Dr first!
