Skydiving grannies' 90th birthday jump

Skydiving granny reckons her 90th birthday outclassed the Queen's dull birthday

"You can bet what you like that the Queen, who's also 90 - she won't be diving off a plane. She had the dullest birthday you could imagine," Irene says.

The north Auckland resident, who lives in Mairangi Bay's Knightsbridge Village, used her 90th birthday celebration as an excuse to knock another item off her bucket list: Jumping from a plane nearly 3 kilometres above Parakai.

"It was lovely. You could see Rangitoto, East Coast, West Coast, Helensville - everything laid out before us. I'd recommend it to anybody. It's a terrific experience,"

Skydive Auckland hosts Jump Start 2015

Jump Start is a charity event that has been running for 9 years and gives 50 CanTeen and Project K teenagers the challenge of a lifetime when they get to jump out of a plane and experience a tandem skydive.

The premise of Jump Start is that the experience of being alive transforms. The elements are:

Facing fear: Discovering inner strength
Placing trust in others: Finding mutual support and team identity
Elation: Skydiving is an intense experience of being alive
Confidence: Gained from accomplishing the goal
Acknowledgement: Applause as they receive a certificate of accomplishment
Belonging: Being part of a group of first-time jumpers

The teenagers enjoyed stunning sunrise views of the Kaipara harbour, rainforests and beaches as they flew to altitude. The nerves at this point were building while they waited for the door of the plane to open and the wind to rush in. Freefalling from 10,000ft for an amazing 30 seconds, they reached speeds of up to 200kph. After freefall they experienced a beautiful parachute ride before landing safely back on the ground.
