  • Are 'High Performance' turns permitted?
    Hook turns or High Performance Landings are permitted if you are capable.
    There is a sectioned off area for swoopers and fast canopy pilots but the important words are highlighted above... If you are capable!
    The thrill of a great swoop wears off pretty fast if someone gets injured so please respect the guidelines set out by Skydive Burnaby and know your limitations.

  • Are AAD's required?
    No, Skydive Burnaby does not force you to have an AAD if you are a licensed skydiver.
    If you are not a licensed jumper, all of our rental equipment does come with an AAD and all of our student gear is fitted with one as required by CSPA.
