What's Needed to Check-in

Information and Documentation required for Check-In

Safety is our main priority at Skydive Algarve, to avoid disappointment on your arrival please read our complete Safety Rules before the information below. 

On arrival, you will receive documentation and equipment checks – this is our internal inspection to increase the safety for yourself and all others on the DZ.  However, as with the nature of our sport, you assume your own risk by using your own or our equipment, and taking part in skydives. After the document and equipment checks, all skydivers will undergo a DZ Briefing, landing area introduction by one of our Skydive Algarve authorized personnel.

British Open National Championships

Our sister drop zone in the UK, Skydive Hibaldstow has been the host to the British National Skydiving Championships for over a decade and has just won the bid to continue hosting it for a further three years until 2018.

As an Open event, teams from all over the world are able to enter.

In 2014 we welcomed 75x 4-Way FS teams, in 2015 there were 70x 4-Way FS teams. The meet is regularly the largest 4-Way skydiving competition in the world.

We also run the 8-Way FS, and Freefly competitions and frequently the 4-Way Veritcal Formation (VFS). 

Many teams choose to train with us in order to jump from the competition Dornier and finest aircrafts ahead of the events. 

Boogies

If you are not familiar with skydiving or its terminology you may be wondering what a Boogie is.

A Boogie is a gathering of skydivers who come together from around the world. Boogies are not competitions, they are purely for fun and a chance for jumpers to meet up with skydiving friends from around the world. These events see large numbers of skydivers taking to the skies, including high profile skydivers, which can result in large formations and very interesting skydives.

Skydive Algarve also hosts an annual Christmas Boogie in December and January each year. The Christmas Boogie includes:

  • Beach jumps
  • FREE registration
  • Experienced load organisers
  • FS, Freefly and Wingsuit Coaching
  • Canopy Courses
  • Organised parties and evening meals
