Welcome to Skydive Switzerland! We’ve been jumping for over 20 years and we have grown steadily with the goal of offering the best aircraft, facilities and customer service.
Whether you’re working on your license or have thousands of skydives, we would love to host you at our dropzone in Reichenbach, Switzerland.

What's needed to check in?
Safety is our main priority at Skydive Switzerland, to avoid disappointment on your arrival please read the information below.
Correctly completed and up-to-date logbook (or photocopy of last 3 pages, all pages if 25 jumps or less).
Current, international license’s accepted, USPA, BPA, APA etc.
Valid 3rd party liability insurance
Min. 1 million (chf) coverage
Reserve parachute must be in date, according to your country’s repacking cycle.
What to do when you arrive
On arrival, you’ll receive documentation and equipment checks – this is our internal inspection to increase the safety for yourself and all others on the dropzone. All skydivers will undergo a dropzone briefing, landing area introduction and equipment check by one of our authorized staff.
Please note that while Skydive Switzerland will try and facilitate as much as we can, it is your responsibility to prove that your own documentation is valid, in date and in a language (English/German) that can be read by our staff.
Insurance is only required if you are jumping your own gear. The insurance is not medical insurance, it is in case of damage to a third party’s property (house, car, etc). We are unable to sell the insurance directly, and you’ll need to organise this before you jump. You can purchase the insurance from Swiss Skydive through the below link.
Get to know the dropzone
Grand Caravan EX 867
Skydive Switzerland always has an aircraft on hand due to the connection with our sister company “Scenic Air”. We can share planes based on demand.
Our newest and mostly used plane is the Grand Caravan Ex 867.
Before the Grand Caravan joined our team, we were flying the Pilatus PC-6 Porter. It is still available to us on days when Caravan is away for safety checks and servicing.
Pilatus PC-6 Porter
This plane is ideal for scenic flights as it is able to fly close to the mountains and allows passengers to see the natural beauty that the Swiss Alps has to offer from a bird’s-eye view.
In winter, we are able to mount skis and perform glacier landings.
We’re lucky to have some of the most experienced jumpers working with us. From time to time we can offer freefly and wingsuit coaching. If you’re interested in getting some coaching, it’s best to contact us for more information at the moment to see what we can organise.
