COVID 19 Update

Updated 28th February 2021

ALERT LEVEL 2

We are OPEN and taking bookings.

Fellow thrill seekers! To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we all have to do our part. The feeling of free fall will always be the same incredible feeling, but we do have to change how we operate things a little.

The safety of you and our staff is extremely important to us. There are a few extra things to consider when you come to visit us. We’ve outlined a few extra precautions you need to be aware of below. We ask for your patience and co-operation while we navigate through these changes.

Increased Health and Safety at the Dropzone

  • All attendants, including your supporters, must sanitize their hands and complete the contact tracing details on arrival at the dropzone. These will be provided on check-in.
  • Staff will direct you to specific seating to assist with physical distancing.
  • Spectators are asked to remain outside in the viewing area and away from operational areas wherever possible. Spectators must maintain 2 meters separation from other groups. Staff will assist with this.
  • Jumpers must remain 1-2 meters from another group as much as possible during the briefing and on the ground. Our staff will assist with this.
  • PPE will be made available on request, particularly if you are likely to be less than 1 metre from someone from another group. You are welcome to wear your own PPE as you see fit.
  • Please don’t be offended if we don’t shake your hand, but air high fives are ok!
  • In the aircraft we require that at least your buff is kept over your mouth and nose, your gloves remain on at all times. These will be provided.
  • If any attendant displays symptoms, or are confirmed positive, for COVID-19 within 14 days of visiting us, you must contact us as soon as possible.
