Licence requirements

For the 2020 season, we allow experienced skydivers to jump at Parachute Ottawa if they possess a valid CSPA B-Cop, C-Cop or D-Cop.

We do invite experienced skydivers with a valid CSPA Solo and A-Cop to jump at one of our sister drop zones, Parachute Montreal South Shore, in Farnham, QC, or Parachute Montreal North Shore, in Saint-Esprit, QC.

We are looking forward to welcoming skydivers of all levels at Parachute Ottawa for future seasons!

F.A.Q.

I read on your website that only skydivers with a CSPA B-Cop, C-Cop and D-Cop can jump at Parachute Ottawa. Why is that?

Parachute Ottawa’s landing areas cover about 400 000 square feet, which is normally plenty of space for experienced skydivers to land, from Solo-licensed jumpers to experts. However, rivers and lakes surround Parachute Ottawa’s landing areas, which bring an extra level of difficulty. At the moment, we consider that skydivers with a valid B-Cop and licences above are experienced enough to jump and land at Parachute Ottawa safely.

During the 2020 season, we wish to evaluate the canopy flying and landing behaviours of our jumpers in relation to water proximity before allowing Solo and A-licensed skydivers to jump at our drop zone.

Safety is and always will be our priority and that is why we took this decision. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

When does the 2020 season begin and when will it end?

The 2020 season will start on July 17th and will go on until August 30th (inclusively).

When can I jump at Parachute Ottawa? What are your business days?

The 2020 season will start on Friday, May 16th! We will be operating every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from May 16 to October 12, with a few dates excluded, please don't forget to look at our current availability.

Yes, we sell different blocks of jump tickets with or without gear rental. For the prices, please contact us.
