Why Skydive for Blesma?

Matt's Story...

Matt Weston was just 20 when he lost three limbs to a bomb blast in Afghanistan. 

"All I remember is a flash, my ears ringing, and the sense of falling. I lost both my legs and my right arm below the elbow in the blast. My rehab has been long, slow and difficult. I was in intensive care for a while and was in hospital for three months, and I've just had my fiftieth operation."

"If my chair breaks and I can't repair it, Blesma will get it done. I was in a bad place after my injury but Blesma have been there for me, by my side from day one."

What are the weight restrictions? Highest and lowest?

The weight limits for men and women can vary dramatically between our airfields – please check airfield limits before booking.

What are the age restrictions?

For the tandem skydives the minimum age is 16 – however anyone aged 16 or 17 would need to have a parental consent form on the day of their jump. We send this out once you are booked on.

Some of the airfields have an upper age limit for tandem jumps: Cornwall has an upper age limit of 65, Lancaster and Whitchurch have a limit of 70 and Perthshire has a limit of 49.

What if I have a disability – can I still jump?

Each airfield will look at each case individually so please contact our fundraising team and we can check for you.

With any medical condition- you will also need to have the medical form signed by a doctor.

What if the weather isn’t looking good?

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, and you are free to contact the airfield yourself to ask about whether the jump will be going ahead. However, if you have not heard anything to the contrary, you must still turn up to your jump.

Can I have supporters come with me on the day? What time should they arrive?

Of course you can bring along supporters! We would recommend that they arrive about an hour after your arrival time – this would give you time to have your training and get kitted up.

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).
