B-Rel Support

One of the biggest hurdles to a skydiver in the early months, is the cost!

To support your early progression in skydiving, the Australian Parachute Federation (APF), the South Queensland Parachute Council (SQPC), and the Toogoolawah Skydivers Club (TSC) are helping you save and get back up in the skies! Be sure take advantage of these rebate and training programs:

  • SQPC $100 ‘B Certificate’ Rebate Application – A $100 ‘B Certificate’ rebate upon completion of your ‘B-Certificate’ – available for SQPC members who gain their Certificate B in the previous 12 month.
  • TSC Jump Ticket Rebate: B-Rel-Reimbursement  – To be eligible for a B-Rel jump ticket refund you need to have been a TSC Club member before beginning the B-Rel jump table, and to have done all these jumps at the Toogoolawah Drop Zone.
  • Book your B-Rel or Star Crest Coaching Ticket with Video
  • APF B-Rel Buddy and B-Rel Boost Camps are training programs designed to help novice skydivers further their training.

This video was compiled on Saturday, the 12th of May with B-Rel candidates Jett Girvin (with the help of his dad David and his mum Vikki), as well as novices Ash Robinson, Tyler Stewart & Warner Trim. Thanks to the APF for their support and thanks to Steve Fitchett and the camera flyers for their contribution.
