About our Skydiving Campus.

We launched the Freefall University in 2001 with the overriding ambition of providing specialist skydiving courses aimed at delivering Accelerated Freefall to students in a way that would be far more enjoyable than anything else on offer. Our philosophy is: Top people, top equipment, topped only by maximum enjoyment. The addition of 3 wind tunnels into our programmes has only made things even better!

Specialist Skydiving School.

Although the Freefall University is primarily a specialist training school, we naturally welcome individuals and groups who wish simply to jump in either of our enviable drop zones. However, due to our evangelistic skydiving tendencies, we especially welcome those seeking training – be they beginners or experts. Every member of our team takes a professional attitude and approach to the way they fly, the way they teach and the way they conduct themselves in general.

Location

Our main Spanish facility is conveniently located just south of Madrid and comprises of a purpose built facility next to a large expansive flat landing area. We are thirty Minutes drive along the A4 southbound from Madrid beside Ocana with our accomodation zone in Aranjuez. We can also be reached by train from the airport which runs every 20 minutes or of course we can meet you in the airport.
