Last jumping date for 2011

18 Dec

This is the last jumping day of 2011. The dropzone then closes for a few weeks. Many of our regular jumpers head off to our sister dropzone called Skydive Spain for their Christmas Boogie. Its the warmest place in Europe, so if you want to some winter rays of sunshine, this is the place to go.

Christmas Party

10 Dec - 11 Dec

It's the end of the year party here at Hib and we want a good sending off.

We will of course, given any opportunity be skydiving so this is the penultimate weekend you can get some currency jumps in so don't miss out and go uncurrent over winter.

As usual after the sun sets, the DZ will be providing a drinks reception of mulled wine to get you warmed, from the harsh winter weather, but that's not all of course, a full Christmas Buffet will be available for early evening.

Introduction to Speed Skydiving

04 Jun - 05 Jun

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to go really fast? The sensation is very different to any other type of freefall you have done before.

The objective behind the weekend is to give you an introduction to the sport and get you logging some fast times. Speed skydiver, Simon Brentford will be running the weekend with a seminar, sports measuring equipment, a safety brief and analysis of your performance.

You don't need to be a freeflyer (Simon isn't!) and all you need is 500 jumps to take part.

Safe Flight School canopy course with Brian Vacher

23 Apr - 25 Apr

Brian Vacher returns to the Hib to run his seminal Safe Flight School course. While this is the introductory weekend, it is suitable for all levels of skydiver from A-licence to pro.

Canopy skills are often overlooked and is unfortunately one of the most dangerous aspects of the sport with most injuries and deaths happening under a full square canopy.

We cannot stress the importance of safety under canopy and so cannot recommend this course enough, you are never too good or too inexperienced to do a canopy course.

20 Year reunion party

16 Apr

Skydive Hibaldstow has been around for quite a long time. Come celebrate with people past and present going back to the days of Doncaster Parachute Club and Target Skysports at Hibaldstow.

Winter Warmers Week 1

04 Mar - 06 Mar

We're warming up the winter this year for you again.
We want to see you at the DZ, so why not drop in Friday night? We're offering free beds to those that want to join us for a beer. On top of that, every beer you buy gets you a raffle ticket entry to the nights draw - Win a Jump ticket, just by having a beer! Even better, if you make the 9am load Saturday it's worth 2 slots.
And this is the beginning - We'll also be introducing drinks offers and entertainment Fridays as the nights come, so the question is...
Why wait 'till Saturday?
