We recognise that people can sometimes fall outside of these guidelines, if this is the case we highly recommend that you email the Chief Instructor in advance on firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Insurance may be provided by your own parachute federation, but some may not cover civil responsibility insurance outside of their own country. Please ensure you have sufficient and suitable insurance as we are not able to issue it at the airfield. Please note this does not apply to tandem customers. Portuguese AFF students must join the FPPQ in advance of their training date.
