I jumped 4 fun solos @ Empuria Brava in June. Had exactly the same problem.

They let you jump there before you got your A? I'm in Spain in about 8 weeks' time - I damn better get my A before then but if I don't would sure be nice to know i could still go jump

Re: [Orange1] Greetings from JSC [In reply to] Can't Post

After passing your AFF you are allowed to do solo jumps. Take your log book along. They might ask you to do a check-out jump with an instructor. (O and the DZO ask me to complete a written safety test)

Gear (jumpsuit, alti ect.) Deposit 185 E (but you get that back) and 35 E per jump including gear hire and packing.

If you get the opportunity dont waste it...The view is out of this world.

Cheap is relative......to exchange rate. Unimpressed

I think judging by her Tongue she was being sarcastic. There was an interesting thread in the bonfire a while back about jump ticket prices, i think we might be on the more expensive side. Although 35 Euros is totally wild!

Well, I know that we are cheap compared to the UK (isn't everyone?) but that EUR35 is R280 identical to SCT = R160 jump ticket + R100 rig hire + R20 packing fee... although if you take into accoun altitude we're expensive Crazy
I think our AFF prices are quite reasonable though? And there was a thread on rig hire a while ago where we seemed not too bad

oh and... I'm an economist, what do I know from exchange rates Tongue ... we must have looked really cheap in 2001/2002 though!!

Re: [Peej] Greetings from JSC [In reply to] Can't Post

peej, is that with or without gear rental?
skydive spain has tickets listed at EUR23 (discounts for blocks) but i think that's excl gear

er, skytango, consider your thread officially hijacked! (i think it happened a while ago actually Cool )

btw you can try argue, whatever, as long as the first question you ask after you meet me is NOT "so, where's the rand going?"!!!! Crazy

Re: [NeilRobertson] Greetings from JSC [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Neil,

Great stuff on your ISP jumps.

I planned to do 1 CAT2 on Saturday but with Tonto under the weather a lot of AFF slots opened up. Manifest twisted my arm into doing 3. Wink I passed all three so another three should get me to CAT2. Sly
