The University of Nottingham Skydiving Club

The University of Nottingham Skydiving club is the largest university skydiving club in the UK. We are a group of students who meet up any day the sky is blue to jump out of a perfectly good plane!

Living in Nottingham makes you lucky enough to be just 25 minutes away from Langar Dropzone – the largest civilian Dropzone in the UK. That means you are able to jump regularly, and hopefully progress quickly!

By getting involved in skydiving you will meet lots of amazing people who are just as crazy as you! Not only do we as a club organise socials on a regular basis for our club members, but you will heavily interact with the wider skydiving community down at Langar. You’ll meet all sorts of skydivers, of all ages and experience from all over the world. It’s a super fun, friendly community through which you will benefit from support and advice. Through the unique, intense and exciting nature of the sport, you will make the most fantastic memories. 

The club is also part of the British Collegiate Parachuting Association (BCPA)- a non-profit organisation who arrange events all year round for university skydiving clubs around the UK, providing great opportunities to meet other young skydivers.

Our Ambition

We want to develop the holistic model of skydiving as sport at the University of Nottingham, through

  • Using BPA (British Parachute Association)–approved centres to provide a structured training programme to enable our members to progress through the BPA licensing system.
  • Supporting members of all levels to progress to the next stage of learning and competition in the sport.
  • Creating and providing a social and friendly community for the recreational enjoyment of its members, in both a sporting and social entertainment capacity.
  • Encouraging competition with other university skydiving clubs throughout the UK via the BCPA (British Collegiate Parachute Association) and via any direct link

How we are achieving our Ambition

Social Events

We organise events and club socials of all varieties on a regular basis throughout the year. In the past these have included ice skating, trampolining, club nights, BBQ’s and Varsity sports matches to name a few.

Transportation

We cover the logistics by providing and managing a cashless transport system to make finding lifts as easy as possible

Kit Hire

The club owns and provides top quality skydiving equipment for our members to use for an extremely small kit fee paid annually. All of our kit is maintained to the highest standard.

Getting You Started With Jumping

We work directly with the Dropzone to get you the best prices for your skydiving course and make booking as easy as possible for our members. We know many of the instructors personally and can guarantee you are in safe hands.

Ticket Subsidisation

We directly subsidise our Jump Tickets for our current UoN Students

Community

The club is firmly integrated into the wider skydiving community, meaning you will benefit from the experience and support of skydivers of all ages and disciplines, including some UoN alumni.
