FS Bigway with Gary Powell and Adam Pemble 2nd Mar 2019

Have you got your FS1? Are you comfortable jumping in groups of 3 and 4 FS jumpers and want to progress your jumping, have even more fun and hopefully be invited on the 30 way FS attempt in August? Gary Powell and Adam Pemble are organising FS bigways regularly this year. Why not join them to get guidance and build on your skills. Jumps cost just the normal jump price and you get a camera debrief if the group is bigger than 6 people. Please sign up so we have numbers attending.


Packing Course 7th Mar 2019

Learn stress-free packing for safe, comfortable openings.

Our course will familiarise you with your equipment and show you how to prepare it for packing, right from landing.
We'll the teach the packing process from beginning to end, and share with you techniques to make the whole thing easier. You'll learn good practice to help avoid malfunctions, hard openings, premature deployment and excessive wear to your gear.

You should finish the day with the confidence to pack for yourself, with more than enough skill and know-how to fulfill the requirements for your B Licence.

Learning to pack your own parachute can save you a lot of money and time!
Course price is £75 to be paid on booking!
Register online or call the office on 01404 890222.
Max. 10 spaces. Min. 2 students to run course. (If the course doesn't get enough interest we may need to postpone). If you register and do not attend you will lose the course fee.

Please register to help us plan the event.
Sponsored by XDream (win a £50 gear voucher!)
As the new season approaches and many of us haven’t jumped much in recent months,
Safety day provides a great opportunity for experienced skydivers to review current procedures, consider the decisions we make (or don’t make!), and update ourselves on new developments in the sport.
We have an exciting lineup of instructors and coaches presenting a series of short briefs, lectures and practical sessions on a wide variety of topics, from off landings and aircraft procedures, to rig maintenance and canopy choices.
The day will start with an opportunity for all jumpers to review their emergency procedures with a local instructor, followed by a series of short seminars on a variety of topics and a flight line checking competition. Helicopter jumps and night jumps will be happening in the afternoon, followed by a carvery in the Aviator - see the Start of season social event for more info.
Those who register and attend will be in with a chance of winning a £50 XDream voucher to be used at the on site gear store.
This day is primarily targeted towards experienced skydivers. Students may be able to participate in certain parts of the day, however some of the lessons may be restricted to licence holders only. Students wishing to participate should speak to Jack at the start of the day.
