The Parabellum Skydiving special events team can organise and deliver bespoke events; from a small local event or special occasion to a large corporate event. Each event will be fully supported and delivered by our specialist team, who are fully trained professional skydivers with over 20 years of experience in parachuting events and displays.
The specialist events described below can be tailored to the all of event types.
Parabellum Specialist Events
Parachute Flag Displays
In addition to our normal parachute display package, the team can manufacture company/individual flags to the requirements and specifications of the event organiser. These flags can range from 10 sq. ft to over 200 sq. ft.
Once manufactured, these flags can then be flown behind the parachutist during the display, once they have opened their parachute. This is an eye-catching way to display a company’s logo or individual message and is a great crowd pleaser.
Freefall Flag Jumps
As well as flying flags under canopy at our parachute displays (detailed here), the team can also prepare or manufacture company / individual flags to be flown in freefall. This type of flag jump includes two professional skydivers exiting an aircraft with a photographer.
During the jump, the photographer will take some stunning pictures of the flag in freefall held by the two skydivers, giving the ultimate wow factor for a company’s promotional material.
Tandem Event at a Chosen Location
The special events team can organise a tandem event at any suitable location in the UK chosen by a client. For this type of tandem event, a locally sourced helicopter will be provided by the team at the chosen location to complete the tandem skydive/s.
At this event, options could include a single VIP jump into the chosen location to start an event or a ‘come and jump program’ lasting the duration of your event to give your guests the opportunity to complete a tandem skydive. This option can be for as many as 20 tandem skydives per day.
All persons who would like to take part in the event will be given a central safety briefing and suitable training before the skydive commences. The skydivers must also conform to the restrictions detailed here. Each evolution of training and fitting of equipment will take approximately 30 minutes for each load before taking off and climbing to an altitude of 12,000ft or the altitude given by Air Traffic Control (ATC) for that area. Once the helicopter has taken off and climbed to altitude, supporters of the skydiver/s will be informed in time for them to observe the landing. After the freefall part, the tandem skydivers will complete a circuit under canopy above your spectators before landing safely to complete an exceptional event.
All skydivers will be provided with a jumpsuit and the necessary equipment, as well as a videographer to take pictures and a video of the skydive, if required. The specialist team will arrive before the event commences to set-up the drop zone at the chosen location. During the event, the ground team will take care of all the drop zone operations associated with parachuting.
The minimum area required for this unique event is 50m x 100m, with no hazards that could interfere with the tandem landing.
Tandem Raffle Event
The special events team can create special tandem offers for the use as raffle prizes, such as a tandem skydive that includes a videographer to capture the full experience.
For raffles that take place during an event that involves the Parabellum Skydiving special events team, the prize draw could coincide with the aircraft arrival or we can provide novel ways to incorporate the prize draw into the parachute display.
Catering can be provided at any of our events if required. Choices for catering are mainly, but not exclusive to the following:
Our food services are run by veteran military chefs who specialise in event catering for external venues. Menu requirements and specifics can be finalised while booking your event.
We can also provide champagne to complete your day before returning home or being transported to local accommodation.
Cost and Arrangement
The cost of each event will need to be tailored to suit your requirements and location as these factors will influence logistics and aircraft movements.
If you're interested in any of the events above, then please complete the form below and we'll contact you to discuss the event, costings and answer any questions you may have.
Please be aware that there is a booking deposit, payable on acceptance of your application. This will cover any initial costs for aircraft booking and recognisance and does not form any part of the demonstration fee.
Please be aware that we generally require a minimum time period of 30 days’ notice before the start of any event.
Tandem Day at a Drop Zone
The special events team has access to over 13 drop zones in the UK and can organise tandem days specifically for large groups, companies or charity events. This tandem option will use the aircraft provided at the selected drop zone, which can climb to a minimum altitude of 12,000 ft or up to an altitude of 15,000 ft, depending on the drop zone.
Once the aircraft has taken off and climbed to altitude, supporters of the skydivers will be informed in time for them to observe the landing. After freefall, the tandem skydivers will complete a circuit under canopy above your spectators before landing safely on the drop zone.
As above, all skydivers who want to take part will receive a central safety briefing and suitable training before a full day of parachuting activity at the drop zone selected. All tandem skydivers must also conform to the restrictions detailed here. A jumpsuit and the necessary equipment will be provided to the tandem skydivers, as well as a videographer to take pictures and a video of the skydive if wanted.
The team can arrange accommodation in the local area if required and also coordinate movement from the accommodation to the drop zone.
