Sunny days in Lillo. Check out the DZ's new aircraft. We are now regularly jumping from altitudes of up to 14000ft. This extra height affords for much greater learning time on our AFF Courses. No other dropzone in the area can boast two fast climbing aircraft and unrivaled turn around time. Jump more, learn more enjoy more at Skydive Lillo!
 
 
 
 
It's nearly Boogie time! - The DZ is starting to get busy in the lead up to its christmas event. There will be a helicopter in Lillo from the 8th of December. Fancy doing your level 8 from a chopper?

A warm welcome to the Spanish Army! These guys have decided to come down to see us to work on both their canopy and relative flying skills. Here you can see a coached 4-way jumping being prepared.
 
 
 
 
Other news.....check out our classroom facilities....here you can see our very own Barry and Lamorna working on our new promo video. They are also wearing our brand new jump suits. We like all our instructors and students to wear the same colours as it makes us feel part of the same team and looks awesome on your free DVD and digital stills!
 

 

As promised, Freefall Addicts are pleased to announce two further locations to our already fabulous location at Skydive Lillo. We are now running Skydiving courses in Seville at Skydive Spain and scheduled trips to Skydive DeLand in Florida.

Why book with a Freefall booking agent when you can book directly with your instructors?

Everything we do here at Freefall Addicts is run directly by our staff. Talk to Lamorna our sales manager- she is also a USPA Coach and will be working on formation skydiving with you. Talk to Barry, our rigger and school manager - he is an AFF instructor and will help you to learn to skydive. Talk to Mike our business manager, he is an AFF instructor and Tandem instructor, whilst also flying on a formation skydiving team.

If you want to be the best, book with the guys that eat, sleep and breath skydiving!

A tandem skydive is an ideal way to introduce yourself to our sport. Why not take a look at our Gold AFF package or even try an AFF level 1?
 
 
 
 
Learning to pack helps you to gain more knowledge about the equipment you are jumping. It is a good skill to have when you are jumping on a busy DZ and there are no packers available. Freefall Addicts are able to offer you a learn to parachute pack course in addition to the many other courses we run.
