If you have never seen skydiving in action, here is your chance!

This Wednesday, as part of Sports Week, the Skydive Club will be giving you the chance to let your ‘jaw drop in awe’ as you experience a thrilling skydiving display.

Here two skydivers will make a 3500 feet jump from a Tiger Moth biplane and land (we hope) onto the Cryfield sport pitches.

Action kicks off at 12:30 pm with live music and free food. This is an experience you don’t want to miss!

About the Tiger Moth

The Tiger Moth, with its attractive moth-shaped tail surfaces, was invented in the 1930s by Sir Geoffrey de Havilland.

It proved itself to be an invaluable and thorough trainer when World War Two broke out in 1939 and there became an urgent need to train as many pilots as possible both in Britain and in the Allied countries.

The Tiger cruises between 80 and 90 mph and stalls at 45 mph and is gracefully aerobatic.
