Most people can enter to do a tandem parachute jump.

People are still needed to participate in the world’s biggest ever tandem skydiving event being held at Dunkeswell Airfield next month.

The skydiving school in Dunkeswell is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the most tandem skydives completed in 24 hours at a single venue.

Jump day will be Saturday, June 20, one of the longest days of the year.

The same skydiving school in Dunkeswell broke the world record in 2014 by completing 281 tandem skydives in 24 hours. This record was beaten later in the year and is now 286.

Most can enter and do a tandem parachute jump as long as they are over the age of 16 (with parents’ consent). To register, get in touch with Skydive UK/Buzz, 01404 890 222,
