Got a week in over there and really enjoyed it. CCI and Marko done the doc/check and checked my old rig which raised a funny comment due to its age and I was quite rightly told there would be no FF whilst I was there. The cross section of skydivers were really good from all nations and they were very friendly and were happy to share with other guys in the lifts didn't see any evidence of fun jumpers being left out for tandems or AFF as per last comment. I missed out for a couple of days due to the jump limit being raised to 400. I would advise fun jumpers to have a good number of jumps under there belts as the limits of 50 and 100 gets put up at the manifest which is very responsible as there is a main road to the north and town to the south. I took advantage of doing a canopy course 101 there with Peter All um who was excellent and whilst I was there I saw zero cutaways and no one got hurt. I will be heading back in the new year.

I visited here as a fun jumper in May/June 2013 and completed about 40 fun jumps.

Empuriabrava has one of the biggest reputations in Europe but falls so short of the mark in my opinion. They have a brand new wind tunnel and some of the best aircraft I've ever seen. Their new Beech can get you and 19 mates to 13k in 7.5minutes !! amazing.

The major drawbacks for fun jumpers are the complete monopoly by teams and freefly coaching teams which prevent free load organising! Because teams can pre manifest and you cannot, some days we had to wait 2 hours between loads... no thank you.

The DZ has been bought by Skydive Dubai in recent months and there is allot of talk about future plans, however, right now this DZ is not a place I will return to and there a better DZs in Europe.

I did my AFF & A license at Empuriabrava in May 2011. Both the ground school and instructor jumps were top notch (thanks, Laurent & Fran!) Though we were winded out the first day, I got my first 29 jumps in 7 days. They had an Otter and a Porter going while I was there, and I hear they have a 3rd turbine during the peak summer months.

For a novice like me, it was quite a treat to be sharing planes with the French national 4-way teams (both male and female) as well as the Babylon Freefly team.

The view of the sea is amazing and they've got a professional photographer there (Mike) who takes some amazing shots. The cafe and bar are good fun and excellent place for watching students' AFF videos and drinking their beer!

I'd highly recommend this DZ to anyone who wants to do a ton of jumping, get licensed, do an RW or Canopy course, or even just chill and watch some insane swooping.

Just arrived back from 2nd trip to empuria with 4 mates. Unfortunatly we were winded out for a couple of days,however when the wind dropped the operation was quickly got under way.on the last day we were there the boss{peter}paid for me and 4 mates to jump coz he felt bad for us and to thank our patience.this simply doesn't happen elsewhere and I'm happy to go back there and fully recommend the DZ to friends.

To be honest, I got to Empuria and their staff had a very poor attitude, they were a little rude to say, I am tiny and jumping with a sabre 150, they were shouting, laughing and commenting like they new best than my instructors in Ocaña, (hey Xavi, this girl is jumping with 150 and she has 40 jumps, hahaha),well I don't think so!! That I found very arrogant and rude the way they treat people there.
The place was very nice, the planes, the cafeteria (little expensive)and the views were... the best... still I would not change my DZ in Ocaña..
