We introduce members to the sport of Parachuting and you have the opportunity to gain training and qualifications. The local dropzone has recently changed owners and the course (RAPS) that we used to do has been discontinued so we will now be offering discounted tandem jumps or a different course (AFF) which allows the students to get their A License. From there they can go onto to get further qulaifications.
Once qualified, members continue to skydive locally, nationally and internationally.
The Club also arranges periodic trips to wind tunnels for indoor skydiving, this is normally at iFly in Manchester.
All parachuting activities are nationally acknowledged by the BCPA and the Club encourages competition participation within the BCPA where appropriate.
Due to the dropzones recent takeover we cannot comfirm yet how we will operate the new course but we will try to arrange them as often as there is demand throughout the year and we will offer tandem jumps whenever the dropzone is open (Wednesday to Sunday, February to November).
