The World of Skydiving

First Jump?

Skydiving is one of today’s most exciting sports. Dynamic and colourful, it offers mastery of the air and the freedom to make the skies your own!

Become a Skydiver

Enjoyment, exhilaration and limitless challenge are available even to the absolute beginner. And at its highest level, skydiving is an intensely competitive sport which requires finely tuned skills, intimate knowledge of the air and perfect body control.

Training & Progression

Many new skydivers try out the different disciplines and find which they enjoy most. We are waiting for you to take part!

Where can I jump?

More people than ever are discovering for themselves the pure joy that freedom of the skies can bring. Please contact our Affiliated Parachute Organisons / Drop Zones for information on their days and hours of operation.

    Becoming a qualified skydiver is one the greatest achievements of my life so far. I’ve experienced first-hand the fear and pressures of a first jump and witnessed them slowly ebb to become a feeling of euphoric freedom!
