Jump in paradise

Skydive Mossel Bay Rated 5 by: altrisk on 2016-10-03

Pros: They now have a King Air B90
Cons: None really

This smallish club is going places. Henk is going out of his way to accommodate sport jumpers, unlike other clubs in the province who mainly cater for tandems.

And now with a King Air B90 you get to altitude in no time.

Skydive Mossel Bay Rated 4 by: PurpleWill on 2004-08-20

Pros: Beautiful part of the South African Coast.
Cons: In context, it's not really a con, but things can move a little slow.

A friend and I made a visit to this club when I was still busy to complete my freefall progression. The CI had no problem allowing us to jump.

We had to wait a while for the pilot to arrive which almost turned a sunny day into an, overcast no jump day.

Fortunately when the pilot arrived everything went smooth and efficient and we got into the air before it became too overcast. The crowds over the ocean on the one side and the mountains on the other side made for spectacular scenery. The club equipment I used was in good condition and all the facilities were clean and sufficient.

While waiting for the loads to happen we sat in the hanger and engaged in some conversation with some of the locals.
They seem like a friendly enough bunch.

It was a good experience that I will repeat as often as opportunity allows.
