What's needed to check in?
Safety is our main priority at Skydive Switzerland, to avoid disappointment on your arrival please read the information below.
Correctly completed and up-to-date logbook
(or photocopy of last 3 pages, all pages if 25 jumps or less).
Current, international licenses accepted –
USPA, BPA, APA etc.
Valid 3rd party liability insurance
Min. 1 million (chf) coverage
Reserve parachute must be in date, according
to your country’s repacking cycle.
What to do when you arrive
On arrival, you’ll receive documentation and equipment checks – this is our internal inspection to increase the safety for yourself and all others on the dropzone. All skydivers will undergo a dropzone briefing, landing area introduction and equipment check by one of our authorized staff.
Please note that while Skydive Switzerland will try and facilitate as much as we can, it is your responsibility to prove that your own documentation is valid, in date and in a language (English/German) that can be read by our staff.
Insurance is only required if you are jumping your own gear. The insurance is not medical insurance, it is in case of damage to a third party’s property (house, car, etc). We are unable to sell the insurance directly, and you’ll need to organise this before you jump. You can purchase the insurance from Swiss Skydive through the below link.
Get to know the dropzone
Grand Caravan EX 867
Our newest and most used plane is the Grand Caravan Ex 867. Before the Grand Caravan joined our team, we were flying the Pilatus PC-6 Porter.
We’re lucky to have some of the most experienced jumpers working with us. From time to time we can offer freefly and wingsuit coaching. If you’re interested in getting some coaching, it’s best to contact us for more information at the moment to see what we can organise.
As a funjumper, can I rent the gear at the dropzone?
Yes, the cost is CHF 60 or CHF 69 (depending on jump altitude).
In order to jump at our DZ you need to have min. 25 jumps, A license, have your logbook and license with you and be current.
If you are not current or you do not have your A license then you need to contact us in advance to see if we can organise a check jump with one of our instructors.
Is it possible to jump from the helicopter? Can I rent gear for the jump?
Our rental gear is only available for rent when jumping from the airplane.
If you want to jump from the helicopter you will need your own gear, insurance and you can organise it directly with Air Glaciers or Bohag.
