As the season begins its downturn, we look to richer pastures. Of course, our two sister dropzones are just up the road. One in Spain and on in Portugal, both of which enjoy fine weather much later in the season that the UK. 


Fifty eight jumpers humped over to Portugal to take advantage of the heat, neatly slipping between two thunder storms in the process.

A busy weekend of meeting and greeting on many levels this weekend. 

One one hand, York University's student group managed to draw in a spectacular 24 students onto a groundschool. The bar was busy and the skies full of cold, yet pleased first time jumpers. Nice work York. 

Stubert's 4ndry event, Meet, Greet, Compete was bigger than ever this season with 30 jumpers preparing for another season of 4-way. 

Here's some shots from the weekend. 

Thanks to Aiden Chaffe and Dean Masters for them.

Another top weekend at the DZ with loads of jumpers braving the wrong forecast for some right jumps.


Stu's group took the weekend by the horns, doing 12 jumps. Each a little more developed than the last. It's great to see the group rise to the challenge. As the weather comes in, we've got to take advantage of what's left!


Sausagefest '16

Sausagefest 2016 came and went and was a huge success. We saw over 80 skydivers from all over Britain come and bust out some funky shapes with Stubert and his belly rebels. Sadly losing the Saturday to the glorious British weather, Sunday was the saving grace with three planes and groups ranging fron 6-ways to 34-ways. There was sausages. There was rum. There was more sausages.

Some funky shapes

A fantastic weekend of FS at Hibaldstow. 

Milko’s 28-way group soon became Milko’s 36-way, and why the hell not when we have a spare caravan lying around. Hot skydives, and hot weather made the perfect combination for a great weekend.
