Currently celebrating our 42nd year of operations, the Western Province Sport Parachute Club (trading as Skydive Robertson) is the longest running Parachute Association of South Africa (PASA) approved Drop Zone.
The club operates on weekends and public holidays throughout the year (during the week on special request and subject to a minimum number of bookings). We attract everyone from first time jumpers and students through to sports skydivers of all levels of experience from all skydiving disciplines from all walks of life. All are welcome.
