We jump out of aeroplanes at the weekend. You should too.

 

But I don’t have any experience! The fact is that most new members have never been skydiving before. We organise training courses throughout the year to train people just like you to become fully-qualified skydivers. Your first jump can cost as little as £190 with follow up jumps costing as little as £40 until you qualify. Oh, and did we mention that you always jump solo?!

Never Done a Solo Skydive Before?

Click the Learn to Skydive links at the top of the page to find out how to get your parachuting A Licence. This allows you to skydive solo!

Experienced Jumpers

We welcome any experienced jumpers to join the club too. We’re always looking to enter new teams into various competitions. We are an associated member of the British Collegiate Parachute Association and regularly join with other university societies for their events. A key event in the societies calendar is the Skydiving Nationals, an annual week of skydiving, partying and competitions open to student skydivers across the country.

 

We are fortunate enough to have an ever expanding kit store with state of the art equipment- including four parachue rigs and other accessories. Kit is available throughout the year to any member qualified to use it.

 

Social

We are by nature a very sociable club with a jam packed calendar of social events throughout the year. Our social secretary works hard to ensure that there’s plenty of variety and something for everyone. Our socials are somewhat legendary- keep an eye out for them when you come to Bristol.

 

Holidays

We organise regular trips to other dropzones, both in the UK and abroad. A highlight of the year is always the BCPA tour which travels to a different European drop every year. They’re always a load of fun and a great way to meet other skydivers from across the globe.
