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. This also applies to any non-jumping friends or family who may be with you.

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.

Please note the following important pieces of information regarding the current restrictions/ regulations we must follow due to Covid-19.
  • You MUST bring your own mask with you, which you will need to wear prior to entering the airfield.
  • During these times, no (non jumping) visitors will be able to go inside to the Dropzone with you.
  • Your temperature will be taken using an electronic thermometer upon arrival each day.
  • If you are feeling at all unwell prior to or during your stay please call us and let us know. Do not come to the airfield if you are not feeling 100%.

  • 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.

  • 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.
