Story

Our office in Ossett, Wakefield have organised a Tandem Sky Dive for 5 of our current staff to raise awareness for various different Lung Conditions, including Mesothelioma and Asbestosis which are caused by prolonged exposure to Asbestos Fibres.

Once securely harnessed to our experienced instructors we can take off and climb to around 10,000ft. When the green exit light comes on it’s time to jump! Take a couple of deep breaths and we’re off.

Once in freefall, we will accelerate to speeds in excess of 120mph and cover 5,000ft in approximately 30 seconds before our instructors open the main parachute. Once the parachute is open we will have a few minutes floating back to earth before landing with a (hopefully!) gentle bump!
