We are a Group Member of the worlds most authoritative voice and the global leader in the sport of skydiving; the United States Parachute Association (USPA).
Everything we do at Skydive Diani is driven by the USPA’s Safety Requirements. Our 200+ page Operations Manual was scrutinised, drafted and redrafted until the final version which we meticulously follow today became not only 100% compliant with Kenyan and international regulations, but demanded we were leading the way with regards to safety on all drop zones around the world.
We report directly to the Kenyan Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA). They authorise us to run Parachute Operations and every three months we have to submit all relevant and updated documentation to have that license continue. The KCAA visited Skydive Diani and inspected our facility, they inspect the aircraft every 3 months and they ensure our instructors remain current, competent and qualified in all disciplines of instruction by inspecting their thoroughly maintained records.
Operating on the coast and landing on the beach comes with additional factors which have our close attention. With a designated safety boat patrolling the shore and parachute specific CO2 activated buoyancy aids available for non swimmers, even the remotest risk of an unplanned water landing are covered.
All our operations manuals are openly available at the drop zone for anyone wishing to have a read. Whether for general interest, or to seek some reassurance, you are more than welcome to go through them and ask us any questions you may have.
