Thank you all for your patience whilst we have been waiting to reopen our parachuting operation here at the APA! We are happy to confirm that now restrictions are easing here in England from the 17th May, we can finally open our doors for Tandem skydiving as well as AFF and Static Line courses and our first operating weekend will be the 22nd May 2021! We will only be operating on Saturday's and Sunday's for now but hope that as lockdown (hopefully) continues to ease in June, we may be able to open up on Friday's too. We will be sure to update you when we have further information on this.
A reminder that there are still covid limitations in place, this means that face masks will still need to be worn whilst on the airfield, covid questionnaires still need to be filled in along with a temperature check before being granted permission onto the camp and the number of people here will still be limited.
Any one attending to carry out a tandem skydive with us must be aware that spectators are limited to 2 per student to reduce crowding around the centre. A reminder to also wear warm, comfortable clothes and to bring secure footwear as we still cannot offer jumpsuits. If you have a voucher with us that may be about to expire, please let us know and we will be happy to extend this further for you!
Experienced skydiver's and students will still need to book in to attend for any ground training or jumping and we will resume with the system that was in place before the second lockdown. Please do follow our facebook page for updates on forms etc. If you do not use facebook, please feel free to email us or ask a friend to forward you the forms. If you need to come up to the airfield midweek, this will still be by prior arrangement so you must contact us before visting.
A final thank you to everyone for your patience whilst we have been in the office part time! This won't be for much longer and wait times for email replies and call backs will reduce! As always, any questions or queries can be emailed to email@example.com and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as we can!
We can't wait to see you all in the coming weeks!
