Wednesday 08/03/2006

Hello everyone and greetings from sunny south Spain. I have to say I am very exited at the next few months as Freefall Addicts have had an unprecidented interest in their courses.

Whilst we are busy, we are making every effort to draft in new and highly experienced instructors from the UK. We will make sure there is a place for you here and that you have your own personal skydiving instructor. Check out our modified AFF section. We have updated this page with some more current pictures that show the blue and orange brigade in action!

We hope you have had chance to have a look at our new accommodation section. We at Freefall Addics believe that all our customers should have the option of staying with their fellow students. Our shared apartment offers private rooms with en suite bathrooms and a very chilled out, relaxed environment for you to enjoy your down time. If you feel you would like even more privacy then we have relationships with locals hotels, hostels and camping facilities. Contact us for more details.

On a final note, we believe that this website is a reflection of our companies ethos, professionalism and commitment to our customers. As such we welcome everyone to make suggestions about how we could improve on what we already have.

Sunday 12/03/2006

 
 
 
Another busy start to the day in the packing hangar. Most 4-way teams choose Skydive Spain as their training location due to far supior aircraft, a better guarantee of weather and not forgetting 15000ft on every lift from a 15 seather aircraft that climbs to altitude in only 10 minutes!
 
 
 
 
Team Havoc walk through their next skydive.
 
 
 
 
We decided to have the afternoon off and took our students down to the beach. We found a nice bar and restaurant to chill out in and watch the world go by.....
 
 
 
 
From left to right: Matt (FS1 course), Mike, Diana (AFF course) and Lamorna.

Our location allows us to offer you the best skydiving holiday there is. We will help you get in as many jumps as you can, but if you want to go to the beach, visit the City of Seville or go for a night out on tiles, we can make it happen!

Here is chief packer, Rob, working on DZ control. This is where he monitors and manages the canopy traffic to ensure that everyone lands safely.
 
 
 
 
Seville hosts some of the most fantastic inland sunsets. There is a steady decline from the dz to the mountain range of sierra nevada which blocks us from any nasty sea breezes or fog. This means we can skydive all day long!
