COUNTRY: South Africa
The Western Province Sport Parachute Club was established in 1972 on Modderfontein Farm just outside Citrusdal. In January 2007 the Club moved away from it's Citrusdal home, and is currently operating from Robertson. The Club is a registered member of the Association of Dropzone Operators (ADZO), which in turn is affiliated with the Parachute Association of SA (PASA). It is a sports club which is owned and operated by its members on a volunteer basis. A Committee is elected on an annual basis and serves voluntarily to ensure the smooth and safe operation of the club.
Along with skydiving courses, first time tandem and static line jumps in this picturesque region of the Western Cape Garden Route are available.
The WPSPC will supply you with the some of the best equipment, training and instruction in South Africa. Our equipment includes full student gear as well as rentable rigs for the experienced skydiver. We also offer video or still photography so you can share the thrill of your skydives with family and friends.
A Tandem Jump is the ultimate way to experience the thrill of freefall with minimum preparation. A tandem passenger, or student, will receive an intensive thirty minute briefing including an introduction to the equipment that will be used, and how it works. Thereafter, your instructor will assist with the fitting of your harness, take you out to the aircraft, and take care of all the work while you experience a thrilling 40 second freefall from 11 000ft.
Static Line Jumps
The traditional method of making a first jump is still the most affordable. This method has evolved over the last thirty years from its military origins into a tried and tested method for training skydivers. Ground training lasts 8 to 9 hours from 08h30 on Saturday mornings dependant on group size. This is followed by a flight to 3000ft for your first jump, weather and aircraft permitting.
The class prepares you for everything you need to know about canopy control, landing, emergency procedures and safety checks. Only the feeling of a first skydive is beyond the instructor''s ability to explain! Excitement, anticipation, fear, focus, commitment - and looking good in front of your friends - all combine as you find yourself poised in the door of our single engine Cessna aircraft. As you fall away from the aircraft, the main canopy deploys by means of the static line attached to the aircraft. You will experience approximately 2 to 3 seconds of freefall while the parachute opens.
