Old & New reunion Skydivers Partyyyyy 26th Aug 2017

It's party time again 26th August to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Royal Marines Free Fall Parachute Display Team, also the 30th Anniversary of the Free Fall Team and friends British 34 star record. Last year 250 people joined us for a hoofing (hoofing translates to fantastic) party. Old school left the bar last at 2am and some chose to celebrate the night with fireworks at 3am, at least I think they were fireworks as the explosions were over my tent. Two Beech 99s will be operating, Gary Powell will be co-ordinating an attempt on our British star record over the weekend those interested speak to Gary Powell. You guys will have an extra 3,000' (15secs) compared to what we had back in the day.....just saying :D Food will be available on the night but will need to be pre-booked which went down well last year. If your attending the party give the Aviator a call (01404 890009) to let us know your attending so we can prepare for the numbers and ensure its another party to remember and its open to everyone :D £7.95 for Buffet. Please share and get the word out there, its an opportunity for those that missed the last party and ended up kicking themselves to attend this one. Limited to 250 so don't snooze book in early!!

Canopy course with Jack Bradford for all levels 16th Sep 2017

Advanced Landing Patterns & Avoiding Dangerous Situations

2 part canopy course for all experience levels including 5 jumps.

Part A - Advanced Landing Patterns
Making 2 left hand turns, avoiding the runway and landing near or in the circle seems simple enough, but can we do better? A good landing pattern will give us a high level of accuracy, sets us up for a comfortable landing and is easy to predict for others around us, as well as giving us plenty of alternate options should we need them. On most jumps we can get away with a half-assed pattern and reasonable accuracy, but that won’t always be the case. What if you’re landing off the DZ or find yourself heading towards another jumper on final? Or how about getting your display clearance? We’ll cover:
-Planning your canopy ride
-Building the stack
-Patterns in different conditions
-Making adjustments
-Dangerous habits

Part B - Avoiding Dangerous Situations
We all know that low turns are dangerous; yet dozens of skydivers every year continue to make low turns with often disastrous consequences. This is just one of the many situations that puts skydivers in danger every year. From a recap of the basics, to detailed knowledge and advanced techniques, we will cover the following topics to help you stay safe under canopy:
-Low turns
-Canopy collisions
-Turbulence
-Stalls
-Off landings

£200 including 5 jumps
