On June 21st 2014 Skydive 99 based in UK beat the world record for the most Tandem skydives at a single venue within 24 hours.

They chose the UK’s longest day of the year and it proved to be a smart move. Jumping solidly for 16 hours and 10 minutes, they did 281 tandem descents, confidently beating previous official World Record which was 251, held in Germany.

“This was an incredible experience and it only proves how much we can do as a team,” said Jason Farrant, managing director at Skydive 99. “We are the biggest skydiving school in South England, and we are happy this has put us on the map of the world”.

Most people who skydived this day raised lots of money for charities of their choice.

“Not only this was the experience of their lives, a lot of good has come out of it.” said Linda Bulpin, charity coordinator for the club.

The age of skydivers ranged from 16 to 87. Some of them have lived very close to the skydiving school in Devon, Honiton for the most of their life. Lots of daredevils travelled from London, Scotland and even flew in from the Isle of White.

The whole event was overlooked by two independent witnesses from British Parachute Association, to make sure the event can be officially recognised.
