CLUB JUMPING UPDATE as of 12th September 2021
During the last 19 months we have only operated about 25 jumping days. Covid restriction lockdowns & the airport damage from storms has meant we have hardly been open. Currently we are only jumping tandem students. We will be open weekends till end of November 2021 & reopen March 2022. We are unsure when we will be allowing club jumpers back to jump this year.
Currently our plans are only to open up club jumping to our current club members who have had membership since 2020. We understand this will be dissapointing to many people but we do need to look after our current jumpers who have had very few jumping days in the last 2 years.
Club jumpers will need to book to come in advance. Club jumpers will no longer be able to turn up on a jumping day. We will release jumping days on our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/theskydiveswanseaclub giving details of what information is required to come.
We have cancelled all AFF courses in 2021 & 2022 so we can concentrate on our students from 2019/2020 that have yet to complete their courses.

Please Note: The airport has 2 separate parachute landing areas. The Northern area is unrestricted and is suitable for all experience levels. The Southern area is restricted and you will need to have an A licence and have completed 5 successful pre declared landings to be able to jump on this PLA. The PLA in use is determined by the wind direction on the day of jumping and can often vary from lift to lift.
Our club may be small, but our DZ offers some of the best views in the whole of the UK. We have a number of BPA coaches and instructors who can provide you with FS/ FF coaching/ general progression briefs, packing courses etc. See below for more information.
The airport cafe is closed at the moment and a Burger van is normally on site for weekends.
We recommend you join our closed Facebook Group where you will find a pinned post at the top of the page with the latest information on. We always advise people to check the pinned post before coming to jump with us in case we have updated if open/closed/last lift going up soon etc.
