Example Costs

Estimate of Costs for two students (This was for recent week-long trip to Spain)

This is a rough idea of stuff you will need to pay for apart from your course fee and your flights.

Car hire: Approx 100 euros between 3 of us, so 35 Euros each  for the trip.

Fuel: Usually about 20 Euros each depends on mileage during the week.

Accommodation: Hotel is approx. 35euros per night between 2 of you and you pay when you check out, WiFi is free at the hotel and the Drop Zone.

Rejumps: If you need to repeat any of your AFF levels (because you are not ready to progress further) I charge at cost, by that I mean what it costs me for the places in the plane. Approx 24 euros each place plus 30 euros if we need to employ another instructor. See note 1

Pack jobs: Your parachute packing for your 8 levels is part of your course fee, for rejumps and consol jumps it is 5 euros per pack job.

Consol jumps : Each consol jump is 24 euros, plus 10 euros kit hire. See note 2.

Food and Drink: Beers are a couple of euros each, food is pretty cheap usually about 20euros for an evening meal, there is a canteen on the DZ for snacks etc.

Taxi: If you fancy a night in Seville a taxi is about 7 euros each, well worth a visit.

Note 1. Very few people repeat any of the first 3 levels, some students (not many) repeat a level from 4 to 7, so the most you will have to pay for is 2 slots in the plane, level 8 is a success if you survive…!!  Most clubs charge an average of £150 for a repeat level, we only charge what it costs us, ‘cos I am a good bloke and a crap businessman.

Note 2  Parachute gear is horribly expensive when you leave the plane you’ll be wearing about £5k worth of kit. It is also not cheap to maintain/service. , Parachute Centres in UK charge between £15 and £20 per jump kit hire. I charge 10 euros per jump.
