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. 

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.

General

Social distance where possible.

Regularly wash your hands / use hand sanitiser.

All areas must remain clear and tidy.

Leave bags etc in car or locker.

The club house, including café facilities will be closed.

 

Pre-booking

Pre-booking is no longer required for experienced skydivers with their own kit, but remains in place for solo students and experienced skydivers who require kit hire. You can find the pre-booking link at the bottom of the page.

Pre-booking is generally open with AM and PM slots for any day we are operational. You are welcome to book for both if you wish.

If you book and decide not to attend, please do let us know so we can open the space up to the waiting list.

Solo students – If you have not had any recorded training within the last 3 months, from the date you intend to book for, please contact us before booking a slot.

 

 

Kit & docs for experienced / licensed skydivers

If this is your first visit since 1 April you must complete the online kit and docs form here.

We urge you to do this as soon as possible and no later than the afternoon before your arrival.

 

 

In aircraft

Due to the latest Government updates, face coverings in the aircraft are required.

Helmets and gloves must remain on.

Reminder – Restraints must be worn to 1,000 feet.

Pre-booking is required for solo students and those requiring kit hire

Solo students and experienced skydivers who need kit hire must complete the below for when they wish to pre-book.

Dates will be made available on the Monday or Tuesday before the weekend and will be announced on the club’s experienced skydiver Facebook group when released.

To book, please start by choosing your booking type...
