On Friday 20 March, a limited number of solar eclipse tandem skydives will take place, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience this cosmic event! Jumpers can choose from a jump altitude of 10,000ft or 15,000ft – depending on how much time they want to spend in the sky during the eclipse. From 15,000ft jumpers will reach speeds of up to 125 mph as they freefall for approximately 60 seconds before the parachute is deployed for a magical journey through the eerily dark sky as the moon passes over the sun.
Eclipse jumps will begin at 8.30am through to approximately 9.30am when the eclipse visibility will be at its optimum in Salisbury, with up to 90% of the sun being covered by the moon during its passing.
Gordon Blamire, founder and Managing Director for GoSkydive, commented: “We’re very excited to be offering skydives during the solar eclipse, and we still have a limited number of places left on offer. It’s not very often opportunities such as this come about – it is certainly going to make for fascinating views across the Salisbury Plains and the south coast, as well as an unforgettable experience, even for our instructors!”
