Sport parachuting has been active above the skies of Grindale and Bridlington for decades. In fact, we’ve seen evidence of the great Harry Ward (a.k.a The Yorkshire Birdman) making descents here at East Leys Farm back in 1935!
Our DZ not only boasts a rich history in the sport, but a friendly atmosphere and outstanding views too. Getting to altitude is never dull as the Flamborough Head coastline is just below, along with other stunning sites along the Yorkshire Coast.
To jump at Skydive GB Parachute Club you must become a member. This is priced at £50 for 12 months.
The normal aircraft in use at Grindale airfield is a turbocharged GippsAero GA8 Airvan, which climbs to altitude within 20 minutes. We have packers and a rigger on-site. A handful of our regular jumpers have FS, FF or CP coaching qualifications too and will be more than happy to help.
There’s a great social scene with regular parties throughout the season. There’s plenty of space for on-site camping, but if you prefer a comfy bed instead then we can always point you in the direction of local B&B’s and hotels.
Flight only tickets are sold and flights are operated by Skydiving Aircraft Ltd.
I would recommend Skydive GB to anyone. The instructors are super friendly and know how to calm you down when you feel nervous. Genuinely one of the best experiences of my life and I wanted to do it again as soon as I had landed.
I've done a whole bunch of jumps at this place, starting from somewhere back in 2005. Great place to go jump, especially when there is no cloud and you can see for miles, and something magical when there is snow covering the ground.
