A busy weekend for the DZ with loadza teams coming out for the training camps at Hib.

Weather brushed us hard but nothing can stop a team training - even if it means waiting till 8pm for that triple! And sadly they did some days!


Stubert and Liz brought their groups to the sky over the bank holiday weekend trying out silly stuff and cool stuff. The fun jump scene has never been stronger at the DZ!

It's been a tough spring on the DZ with the weather trying really hard to spoil or fun, but we shant let it do that. 

After a rainy Saturday afternoon the weather opened up to give us a pleasant evening and a pretty decent Sunday. 

On the board this weekend was Dave Lewis organising FS and Mike McNulty organising Freefly.

Easter magic! Loads of fluffy clouds teasing us with their low altitude. But we will not give up!

And each day we were rewarded for our patience with stunning evenings of skydiving from 3pm till shutdown. 

A mixed weekend with FS and FF Coaching and also FS and FF organising and a busy AFF operation.

This weekend, the return of Introduction to Bigway with Dave West and with it a flux of new and old faces getting current or trying FS groups for the first time. 


With Dave West at the helm, seconded by Blyth Davies you know it's going to be a good event. Two groups for the weekend did a mix of skydives with the emphasis on building strong points and flying radials.

What a great weekend on DZ. 

Opening with some great coaching and fun jumping on a busy Friday, and leading into Friday evening's absurdly cheap booze at Hibble Bar.

Saturday's event, FS1+ proved a huge success with two groups arriving to be taught the basics of Load Organising. 


Under the watchful eye of Blyth Davies and Stubert the groups produced some great skills in learning how to approach a group and dock on it.

A weekend of low clouds and high hopes. 

This weekend, a little earlier than most teams, Team Emanon arrived on DZ to start their 8-Way training. Under the careful eye of Pooky, the team ran through the blocks and randoms in the seniors and thankfully got a chance to try some of them Sunday afternoon. 



Weekend 6th - 9th February

A weekend as varied as any before - And an incredible vibe for February!

The weekend started with a stunning Friday and with it Rich Mell taking advantage of Max Navarro's expert coaching. 


Saturday fared a little less well with some cloud halting play, but the DZ did fire up early evening for some fun jumpers to hit the skies and show the 12-strong static line group from Lincoln and York University why they had begun.

Having been blown away last weekend with the shocking winds across the country, jumpers were keen to scratch a particular itch that cannot be scratched, other than leaving a Dornier at 15,000ft. 

Droves of jumpers arrived culminating in three  groups jumping as well as Guy Wilshaw looking to pass his FS1. 

After a great three way, Guy cruised his FS1 jump with a calm 12 points thanks to the Foundy team's excellent coaching.
