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.
We operate a GippsAero GA8 Airvan which can hold up to 8 skydivers and climb to altitude within 20 minutes. We have a rigger and packers 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, and can always point you in the direction of B&B’s and hotels.
I have been to a few DZ's around the world now, including the UK, and this is probably the friendliest place I have jumped. All of the staff treated me like a part of the family from the moment I walked through the door.
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.
