We are Ireland's first ever third-level skydiving club and have gone from strength to strength since the club was formed in 2007. We train students of UL to do their first skydive, most of whom have no prior experience. We can accommodate everyone, from someone who wants to do a one-off skydive to those that want to become licensed skydivers!
The initial training session takes only six hours, it is generally run on campus and afterwards you will know everything you need to keep safe in the skies. So even if you have never jumped out of a plane before, you can do a Solo Skydive as your first jump. Your first skydives are something to remember, so we capture your exit from the plane and landing on high resolution video for you to keep. As part of your training you will learn about the parachute system, how to exit the plane, how to fly the parachute and navigate to the ground safely. After a minimum of just 25 jumps you can complete student status and become a qualified skydiver with an 'A licence'. This qualification is recognized worldwide and so you are then licensed to skydive anywhere you want. We also teach members how to pack their own parachute at Parachute Packing Classes which are held weekly on campus. We organise cost-effective trips throughout Europe for first time jumpers. Every year, we travel to the south of France for 5-6 days in October. There’s also a 2-week trip in May for both beginner and intermediate skydivers.
