Had a great jump with skydive fox. Unfortunately it was quite overcast so didn't get the best view. Awesome paint job on the plane and all the staff are super friendly.

Decided to brave the freezing temperatures and do my first ever skydive! 16,500ft at 8:30am on a clear winters day is just what the doctor ordered! Ridiculously reasonably priced, amazing views and the instructors make you feel 100% safe. Would do it all again! Thanks...More

Response from Skydive-Fox G | Property representative |
Hi Lesley, Due to certification limits on the equipment, we have to have a maximum passenger weight of 120KG. We do require that anyone over 100KG be assessed by one of our senior staff to ensure that they can safely jump.
