Skydiving

A question for those inclined Lads and Lasses,

At some stage this year (or next) I would like to jump out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane.

Has anyone on the forums in NSW done a jump and if so where it was done, which company it was done with and how much.

Regards,

James.

Maybe he wants to see how it feels to travel faster than 96km/h!

As for places, I think there's one on the south-west outskirts of Sydney, out past Campbelltown. I remember seeing signs for it when I drove down to Wakefield and Melbourne.


If you, um, don't come back, can I have your broadband?

Re: Skydiving

There are plenty near my house in Victoria if you want a casual drive. They also win heaps of world wide competitions so they must be good. I watched my Girlfriend jump out around 2 weeks ago. Very quick experience. She was a little white when she got to the ground but lol. The video footage of the jump was great and it looks like fun but still im hard to convince.

when they make a perfectly good aeroplane, then we won't jump out of them....


I did mine a loooong tim ago, back in '96. Ours was actually organised through the RAAF Blue Eagles and a few mates rates went down.

We jumped at Elderslie up the other side of Newcastle, they were fabulous. Obviously in Sydney there is the blokes out at Picton ( i think ), but we never jumped there.

It's well worth the trip to Elderslie as they were the best bunch of blokes with no arrogance toward the newbies and a great culture.. plus you can't beat the view of the Hunter at 14,000 ft...

It's just a shame that the Greased Anvil can fly no more...
