Monday 25th March . Slow start to the week, we had bad weather but without the much needed rain.

On Tuesday blue skies and light winds made for a good jumping day. Student Zeb Whalley did Stages 2, 3 & 4 and Kim Jinsik did Stages 8 & 9 – completing his AFF Course. The local jumpers kept the plane turning.

Hi, just wanted to say what an amazing time I had with my Skydive. Adrian was very professional, calm and funny . Which made me feel very safe . Rest of the guys were supportive, which did help as I think if there had just been me doing it I would’ve been more stressed. It was great having others chatting around me . Thanks for the experience and stay safe .

Upcoming events

This is the place for your AFF Skydive Course! It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life and in no small part due to the great people at the Toogoolawah dropzone. I highly recommend this place for those considering learning how to throw themselves out of a perfectly good airplane. You won't regret your decision.
