    Payments due

    Tunnel bookings due 73hrs before flying. I have to pay the tunnel 72hrs in advance.

    Private coaching is one week.



    If you book onto an event and can no longer make it, I will do my best to find someone to take your place. Or find someone yourself and make it happen. Just let me know.

     

    Bad weather policy.
    No refunds if I have travelled to the DZ.
    25% refund if I have not travelled.

    50% refund with >7days notice.

     

     

    E&OE. Registration fees are your deposits. Non-refundable but can be swapped if you/we find someone to take your place. By coming on trips you are confirming that with appropriate training and encouragement you will be able to safely fly with the intended group. We will do our very best to help you. However, if you're unable to fly in the intended group safely; your approach is uncontrolled, your tracking is inefficient or your canopy control is reckless, or maybe you're just having a bad day, at some point you will be asked to stand down from the group.

     

    Everything is reported as I've been told. Be aware though that planes can break. Fuel prices can go up. Weather can be shite. Balloons can be taken out by a bird with a sharp beak. DZOs can offer to pay for a 3rd plane to carry one skydiver to altitude solely to get outside video or they can change their minds. Volcanoes, earthquakes, locust swarms all happen. Brian is not responsible. Blah blah blah. :-)
