  • Discounted Military Skydiving Lessons

    To All Members of the Irish Defence Forces (Permenant & Reserve).

    Skydive Ireland would like to invite all PDF & RDF members to apply to sign up for the Irish Military Skydiving Day which is taking place this summer. The day is geared towards Irish Military members who wish to gain a Student Parachutist Qualification (SPQ) which is issued by Skydive Ireland and is an Irish Aviation Authorty approved certification.

    The cost of the Skydiving Day is €345 EUR which includes the Solo Parachutist RAM Air Training Course and 3 Solo Skydives. This is a discounted price which is available only to Defense Forces members and you will be issued with a certificate reflecting your participation in this Military Skydiving Day. Normally a single Skydive would cost €320.

    This will be the first year that Skydive Ireland is running this project and intends to mark it in our calendar as an annual event. So if you would like to be part of the first one then get in touch today.

    The Military Skydiving Day will take place on Thursday 26th of June 2008 and weather permitting all the jumps will take place on the same day. Full details are available on our website: www.skydiveireland.ie

    Skydive Ireland is the only Full Time Professional Skydiving Center in Ireland and is the only Skydiving Center that is offering discounted Skydiving Courses to Defence Forces members. The Solo Training Course will be Instructed by the current Safety & Training Advisor to the Military Parachute Club (PCM), Mr. Padraig Costello who is also the Chief Instructor at Skydive Ireland.

    We operate two aircraft, an 8 seater Airvan and a 4 seater C-182 and we have the most modern student parachute equipment in the country. We are the only skydiving center in Ireland to use CYPRES-2 Automatic Activation Devices on all of our Student Equipment.

    So get in touch soon to secure your slot as there is limited availability.
    As an added incentive if you recruit 10 people or more you pay half price. Another incentive is that it is a well known fact that if you have civilian parachuting experience under your belt you stand a better chance of getting on the military parachuting courses.

    It is to be confirmed that the Minister for Defense will be on site on the day.

    So lets hypothetically say that if someone is an admin on a website, and happens to make a thread about it sticky and bring it to the attention of hundreds of people, how much of a discount would said admin get?

        Perhaps I can arrange a signed copy of their hot hot calendar for all participants! So get signed up and lets make this Military Skydiving Day something incredible to be part of and be the first ones to do it!

        If any of you wouldl ike to do it in aid of Charity then call us on 1850 940 222 and you will be issued with a Sponsorship Card to fundraise on behalf of any charity of your choice and raise a minimum of €690 only and your Skydive is then FREE!

          Apart from the possibility of Willie turning up does this have any official backing by the DF? i.e. if members (pdf) are looking to jump there that day and its official it would make it easier to get the time off.

            Hi Cooley, this event does not have military backing and to be honest the chances of the Minister showing up is slim but I will be pushing hard for this to happen.

            This is a private venture and is intended to bypass the usual politics assocated with getting military skydive courses. If we arrange enough people then the the miltary will invariably become interested in it.

            Are you going ot sign up?

              Hey SDI, How will we have to prove Membership of the DF?
              I probably am wrong, sorry about that!!!

              Please PM me to correct me.

              But, not if I state an opinion, only if I state something as truth!!!

              I have bad opinions but I stick by them!!!

                  Can't guarantee that I'll be there but will do my best to get there. Have you any pamphlets or a letter on this available that might help me get the time off?
