On Saturday 25th August, 32 colleagues from across British Airways formed the first Flying Start skydiving team!! The team was a real mix, with 5 International Cabin Crew from our India bases joining on their clear days in London, mechanics from Glasgow, and champions from all over the business!
The 32 adrenaline junkies managed to raise over £10,000 and this sky-high total is still rising!! The skydive involved tandem freefalling from 13,000ft, and the divers even had the chance to control the parachute during the descent! The day was full of adrenaline, endorphins and only a few nerves…luckily no one changed their mind on the way up!
So, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered for this once in a lifetime opportunity and helped raise an incredible amount of money for Flying Start!
