Skydiving Club

Come along and experience the thrill of Skydiving!

We offer skydiving courses at a very advantageous price, and the majority of people who join have never jumped before, so don’t worry if you haven’t! Our club offers the most exciting and sociable sport at university; the British Collegiate Parachute Association (skydiving’s very own version of BUCS) organises meets throughout the year, and Edinburgh is always there to put on a good show! With trips to the wind tunnel and abroad, you won’t regret it! Join us!

We run beginners courses at the start of each semester, click on events to see available upcoming course dates. Find us on facebook for any questions or more details!

The Course: 

This is your chance to learn to skydive, all by yourself, from a minimum of 3000ft! The course is taught through RAPS, which is a static-line system that allows you to get jumping by yourself straight away.

We leave Edinburgh on the Friday night, you will do the course on the Saturday, and then, weather depending, you'll be jumping out of a plane on Sunday! After your first jump, you're able to progress through the stages of the RAPS system and become a qualified skydiver, as many of our members have!! It's really as simple as that! 

If you would like to join us on this weekend, please click on the event link, sign up and select all THREE of the items into your basket: Skydiving membership £30, Your preferred course date £150 and travel £25.

Things to bring: 

  • sleeping bag
  • sturdy shoes/trainers (without hooks around the laces)
  • lots of spare socks
