Experienced Skydiving Information

On arrival all skydivers, including first time jumpers, will need to have their documents checked – licence, log book and third party insurance. It would be great if you have signed our E-waiver, via the web-version of Burble, prior to your trip (more information on Burble below). If you have not signed the E-waiver it will be necessary to fill in our paper waiver.

Access to the airfield is granted on presentation of a valid photo ID so please ensure you bring your passport or national ID card with you on your first day. 

Please note: Although the Dropzone is open 365 days a year, due to operational restrictions imposed on us by the Portimão Airfield, we are currently only able to accommodate jumpers with over 1000 jumps. We will be operating with a beach landing operation for those with over 100 jumps, B license (or equivalent) and water training from October 5th 2022. From September 19th 2022, the Dropzone will start closing twice a week, on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Slots are limited, so make sure to contact us for more information and to register your visit!

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 authorised personnel.

Equipment inspection

  • Please make sure your equipment is suitable for the type of skydiving you intend to do.
  • Please note to be cleared as ‘freefly friendly’, Skydive Algarve require non-velcro riser covers, exposed main bridle cover, good condition BOC, leg-strap bungee.

Skydive Algarve reserves the right to stop anyone jumping equipment that we feel is not appropriate for their experience, currency, or the intended type of jump.  This also applies to main and reserve canopy size.

Guidelines for main canopies

  • Higher Performance Semi or Fully Elliptical minimum 200 jumps (regardless of previous experience on them)
  • Higher performance elliptical minimum 500 jumps (Katana etc subject to performance)
  • X braced minimum 750 jumps
  • High Performance X braced minimum 1500 jumps (e.g. Leia, Valkyrie, etc)

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 info@skydivealgarve.com.

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.
