Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday the remains of Cyclone Trevor brought some much needed rain to the region, stopping jumping for a few days but reviving the deadzone and making landings a lot more comfortable.

The tandem Friday was Kieran Robinson.  Student Steven Hawkins did Stage 1 and Ben Mooney did Stages 5, 6 & 7.  There were 4 182 loads and 9 fun jumpers.

Kieran – Thank you it was one of the most fun that I have had.  Would recommend you again.

Upcoming events

Most amazing experience. Staff are all professional, very safety oriented but make the entire time you are there so much fun. First time jumper and we did it at night during their equinox boogie and the atmosphere was brilliant. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience an amazing jump.
