Huge doubts about the safety of their operations, as they have an incredible pilots turn over rate. This does not speak for a serious and safe operation, and given the number of incidents one can read in the Portuguese aviation authority records regarding this company, I doubt one should place cheap in front of safety!

Thank you Jerome for the message however we are disappointed to see your comment. We understand you are frustrated by the fact we require a minimum of 500 hours in order to fly for our company and therefore you did not like our e-mail response to your pilot job application. I would like to point out we have still have the same pilots working for the company so do not have a high pilot turnover. Secondly, we have not had any aircraft incidents so there are no records with ANAC (Portuguese Aviation Authority). We would appreciate if you consider removing this negative review as it is based on false statements that do not reflect our work ethic at Skydive Algarve.

What an experience!!!! From arriving at the field to leaving it, I was well looked after, felt safe and well prepared (with many reminders cause they know memory doesn't work when you are nervous). Everyone was so positive, even the sport jumpers in the plane were giving me a thumbs up and encouraging smiles. And even the receptionist made me feel like she is proud of me at the end 🙂 Very happy to have done my first jump here and starting the new year with a bang.

Staff was friendly and helpful and the view was incredible! It was a thrilling experience and we were prepared well with a safety video and plenty reminders by the instructor. The tandem instructor did a great jib at shooting very nice pics during the dive and made me feel reassured to be safe.

Anyone who gives this experience less than 5 starts needs to take a long hard look at themselves. Felt save and understood the entire time and every staff member greeted me with a smile and genuine intrigue. These guys have processes to follow and they did to the letter. My jump was smooth and as comfortable as possible, harness is a bit man constricting let's say but more comfortable than falling to a messy demise. Unfortunately forgot my instructors name but he was an absolute gent and a real adrenaline junkie like myself.
