We have found a company where you can scatter the ashes during a tandem skydive!
You can experience the thrill of freefall and even learn the basics of steering, while securely attached to a highly experienced Instructor.
You will have a parachute that is designed for two people. You’ll take an aircraft to around 13,000ft (approx. 2 miles high!) where you’ll leave the aircraft with your instructor. Falling at 120mph, you descend to 5,000ft in around just 40 seconds, where your instructor will open the parachute and descend safely back to earth scattering the ashes on the way. The whole thing lasts for about 6 minutes and from that height you get quite a view.
Following a short pre-jump briefing, You will be provided with a skydiver’s jumpsuit to go over your clothes (wear something comfy), headgear and goggles.
Hop in the plane it spiralling up for 20 to 25 minutes then off you go
The company is affiliated to the British Parachute Association. All tandem instructors are very experienced freefall parachutists who hold BPA Tandem Instructor ratings.
