Foreign Dropzones with English speaking instructor Can't Post

Hi there. I am looking to organize a club progression trip for students and am trying to find dropzones in france/spain/italy that do static line jumps and have an english speaking instructor. we went to go cerps gap-tallard in france last year which was brilliant but we might want to be going somewhere else this year, anyone know of anywhere? (:

I don't know if they do Static Line but Empuriabrava pretty much does everything else (including wind tunnel!). Speak to Regan Tetlow there for further info.

Skydive Spain also have English-speaking folk around.

Hope this helps.

Adam.

Check with Patrick Mercier for dz's in France. He jumps in France and America, teaches French and English.
He is on FB, and on here as FrenchCloud

Hey... Not trying to steer you away from trying new places, but, there is something to be said forkbukldingrelationships when you have a good experience.

If Gap was good, why not calling them back, and seeing if you can build on your past success? Maybe getting them to provide more services,better discount, whatever. I know the dz is in a wonderful place!

http://www.skydivespain.com , near Sevilla in Spain. Awesome dropzone with alot of britts there, 15000ft in 12min, packers, great rental riggs, big landing area and amazing weather. I was there 2 weeks in january and jumped everyday. From what I understand its run by british. They do not do static line but I think its worth it to convert to AFF and be done with it in 2-3 days;) I highly recommend it :)

Static line! We will have students who are either still on the line or off it and on their progression. Aim of trip is so they can get closer to getting their A license.
Thanks for all the replies guys, we are looking at options currently! (:
