Take Flight for CAPS to help birds keep their wings!

Have you ever dreamt of flying like a bird, soaring through the sky? Now is your chance! Join us on our Take Flight skydive to raise money for our Fight for Flight campaign, to end the amputation of birds’ wings in zoos. We can arrange for you to do a jump at your local airfield.

The event
At the airfield you will be greeted by your instructor will teach you all you need to know to jump safely then take you on board the aircraft and fly up 10,000 feet, to complete the jump of a lifetime!

During your fall you will get a taste of the wonderful gift of flight, that birds everywhere should be free to experience as they naturally would. Your flight will help ensure that birds in zoos do not have this gift taken away from them.

  • Jump and training completed in one day
  • Harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times
  • Jump from at least 10,000 feet – just like the professionals
  • Freefall down to 5,000 feet – falling through the air at 120 mph!
  • Ride the parachute down to the ground – you will be taught how to steer onto the drop zone!
  • Landing controlled by your instructor
  • Certificate to prove that you have completed a ‘two-mile high’ Tandem Skydive!

At an airfield near you!
We can arrange a skydive day at an airfield near you! Simply email nicola@captiveanimals.org to let us know you are interested and we can arrange the rest.

To join us, all you have to do is raise a minimum of £395 and you get to jump for free whilst helping birds to keep their wings!  To raise money, ask your friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor you for taking part, sell cakes, hold a collection at work or dress like a bird for the day! The more you raise, the more you can donate to the Fight for Flight campaign.

How do I sign up?!
To register for the jump, all you will need to do is complete a registration form.  Simply contact Nicola by phone 0845 3303911 or email nicola@captiveanimals.org who will send you your form and help you sign up! You will also need to pay a £70 deposit but this will be taken out of your minimum sponsorship total.

After registering for the jump we will then send you a Take Flight pack with more information and ideas to help you reach your target! Nicola will keep in contact with you during the lead up to the event if you have any questions or need help with your fundraising.

Have a great flight!
