About the Club

The South Australian Sport Parachute Club Inc. (SASPC) has existed as an incorporated association since 1962. The SASPC is run by skydivers for sport skydivers in South Australia. The club proudly owns the George Quigley Airfield at Lower Light. The dropzone is currently leased to skydiving operator Adelaide Tandem Skydiving with the funds generated helping to ensure the continuation and development of sport skydiving across all of SA.

OBJECTS OF THE CLUB

The primary purpose for which the Club is established is to:

· Promote interest in parachuting

· Promote good fellowship among those interested in parachuting

· Educate, train, coach, and encourage members of the Club

· Do all such things and acts conducive to the furtherance of the objects and interests of the Club

The club is a non-for-profit organisation, all funds generated by the club are used to uphold the objects of the club. This is brought about by organising and funding sports skydiving events in conjunction with the sport skydiving/training dropzones in South Australia and the Australian Parachute Federation. The club holds it's AGM each year in August.

Have you ever thought about trying solo skydiving?

Experienced a tandem skydive?

Seen the amazing videos of skydivers, parachutists and B.A.S.E. jumpers and wondered how?

It all starts with AFF!

AFF stands for the Accelerated Freefall Program and it can be completed right here in South Australia. The course involves 9 stages each involving skydiving with trained instructors, developing skills in both freefall and canopy flight. By the end of the course you will have the ability to skydive solo and explore the world of skydiving!

There are two dropzones in SA that provide this course, use the link below to explore their websites for more information and book your AFF Course today!
