Experienced Skydivers, Solo Students & COVID-19

To keep on jumping we must adapt…

The information on this page is aimed at experienced skydivers and solo students only. Procedures for our tandem students will be coming soon.  

Just like other dropzones and many businesses, to ensure we can operate we must have some procedures in place for social distancing. Please thoroughly read through before attending.

We understand – you just want to go jumping! Whilst these rules go against our friendly, relaxed atmosphere, we must stick by them.

General

Social distance where possible.

Regularly wash your hands / use hand sanitiser.

No hire of altimeters, hook knives, gloves and goggles (for experienced/qualified skydivers).

All areas must remain clear and tidy.

Leave bags etc in car or locker.

The club house, including café facilities will be closed.

Please only attend if you wish to jump. If you’re visiting us and not jumping, you will be asked to leave.

Everyone must agree to our COVID-19 agreement, which is available when pre-booking.
