Participation in skydiving activities and all related aviation elements with / at Skydive Parys is entirely at the participants own risk.

Sports skydivers are welcome 7 days a week at Skydive Parys subject to aircraft and lift capacity on the day - pre-manifest is essential to ensure that your requirements are met. All sport skydivers must be members of the Parachute association of South Africa and must be holders of a PASA A licence.
There will be a selection of skydiving equipment to hire at the DZ but sports skydivers are required to be self-sufficient with their own gear. Packers of sports equipment may be arranged on selected days but we urge you to acquire this essential skill in your sport and pack for yourself.
While altitude is never guaranteed, Sport skydivers can expect a minimum drop altitude of 10000ft AGL from our “Apollo T” turbine aircraft, which is fitted with an in flight door as well as skydivers step, handles, comfortable floor mat and other skydiver friendly accessories. During busy periods and on selected weekends we will also be operating suitable turbine aircraft to meet demands of both our Tandem customers and sport skydivers. (When we need extra lift capacity an Atlas Angel will be utilised, drop altitude 10 000ft AGL)
On arrival at Skydive Parys you will be required to complete a comprehensive indemnity and provide your logbook, PASA card and skydiving equipment for inspection. DZ orientation will follow prior to your jumps.
