Fryzie was our very first tandem instructor when we first started with a team of three people. It was owners Pete and Chrissy… and Fryzie! Fryzie has competed in World Canopy Piloting competitons, and loves to fly “X-RW”, flying his canopy alongside wing suit flyers in freefall. You may only see Fryzie occasionally because he is still called away to work offshore sometimes, and he is often learning to fly aeroplanes too above Jurien Bay.

We fly a Cessna Caravan which takes 16 people and a Cessna 206 which takes 6 people. We are extremely proud of our aircraft which are immaculately maintained and presented.
Skydive Jurien Bay is committed to environmental sustainability. Amongst a variety of eco-friendly initiatives we engage in, we voluntarily offset our aircraft fuel emissions by tree planting through “Carbon Neutral” and our new Cessna Caravan aircraft is saving us 15,000 litres of fuel per year (63 tonnes less carbon). Our reception office water facility is rain water in an effort to reduce consumption of ground water and we use solar panels to power our office which reduces electricity consumption. The marine eco-system in Jurien Bay is spectacular and unique so we encourage all visitors to Jurien Bay to treat it with respect and not to litter.
