Experienced Skydiving Information

2way Freefly trainingSkydive Hibaldstow prides itself on catering to all levels of skydivers and having a busy event calendar. We have full time coaches and organizers as well as various world class coaches running events throughout the year. These include small formation skydiving and freefly group events, big way skydiving events, records attempts, tracking dives, hybrid jumps, canopy formation, wing suiting and team training events.

We also have a full time events co-coordinator and FS organizer and coach to accommodate all skydivers, but especially the newly qualified A-license students. His role is to enhance your whole skydiving experience while skydiving, but also on the ground during those bad weather days; and also in the evening providing entertainment and hosting various games and challenges.


AAD Announcement

Skydive Hibaldstow has become an automatic activation device (AAD) mandatory dropzone. We believe that the use of an AAD has now become an essential safety requirement for skydiving. All tandem, AFF or Static Line equipment comes fitted with AAD.

Exceptions: Solo hop and pop jumps made for the purpose of ‘CP’ or high performance landings and Canopy Formation jumps, both with the prior approval of the CCI.

More Information

For those teams who can, there is the opportunity to do back-to-back skydives. For those not able to, the turn around is very quick and so you can still get plenty of jumps in at a fast rate.

Using the competition aircraft climbing up to competition height 15,000ft in under 13 minutes, our efficient manifesting system enables teams to train as intensively as they wish.

We try to keep our prices as competitive as possible for both student and qualified skydivers. As part of this we offer special rates for blocks of tickets and team training (contact the dropzone for specific team rates):

FS Coaching & Organising
We pride ourselves as a center of excellence for formation skydiving and vertical formation skydiving. In fact, we host the National Championships every year precisely because we have the aircraft capacity and turnaround ability.

Every weekend we have local load organisers and FS coaches on hand to help.


Dates for 2017

We have lots of exciting Formation Skydiving events lined up this year and always have an coach or load organiser on hand at weekends. Check out our Experienced Diary for a full list of events.
