With its close proximity to Johannesburg and stunning views over the Vaal river and Vredefort Dome World heritage site, Skydive Parys is an ideal location for enjoying sport jumping. Our dropzone community welcomes all levels of skydivers to join us at the dz. Sports skydivers are welcome 7 days a week at Skydive Parys, subject to aircraft and lift capacity on the day. Pre-manifest is essential to ensure that your requirements are met. All sport skydivers must be members of the Parachute association of South Africa and must be holders of a current PASA licence.

On arrival at Skydive Parys you will be required to complete a comprehensive indemnity waiver and provide your logbook, PASA card and skydiving equipment for inspection. DZ orientation will follow prior to your jumps.

There is a selection of skydiving equipment to hire at the DZ, but sports skydivers are required to be self-sufficient with their own gear. Packers of sports equipment are available, but we urge you to acquire this essential skill in your sport and pack for yourself.

While altitude is never guaranteed, Sport skydivers can expect a minimum drop altitude of 10,000ft AGL from our Apollo T (Turbine) which is fitted with an in flight door as well as skydivers step, handles, comfortable floor mat and other skydiver friendly accessories.”

Due to the high demand from Sport Skydivers, Skydive Parys has purchased Two Apollo T (Turbine) Aircraft. The First Apollo T (ZU-IHA) is up and operational and the second Apollo T will be completed mid 2018. During busy periods, and on selected weekends, we will also operate suitable turbine aircraft to meet the demands of both our Tandem customers and sport skydivers. (When we need extra lift capacity an Atlas Angel will be utilised, minimum drop altitude is 10,000ft AGL).
