Take to the Skies for North West Air Ambulance Charity and raise money to keep us flying to save lives.

After all these months of lockdown, imagine standing at an open plane door, 11,000 feet in the air, with the wind in your face and the beautiful Lancashire countryside below you, then imagine jumping! The exhilarating rush of a 30 second freefall, travelling at 120 mph (about the same speed as our helicopters fly!) before your parachute opens, to bring you safely back down.

Well, you don’t need to imagine! You can Take to the Skies with #TeamNWAA on Sunday 18th April and take on this once in a lifetime experience for yourself! With a £50 deposit to secure your place and a pledge to raise £350, you can join a team of NWAA supporters and take to the skies!

Our friends at Black Knights Parachute Centre have new social-distancing safety procedures in place, so you can be confident of a safe skydive in April. If the event cannot go ahead in April, our team will organise another date at no cost to you! Book your place today, and give yourself something to look forward to in spring! View their social-distancing procedures here:

Before booking your place, please be sure to read the important safety conditions on the Black Knights website here:
