GoSkydive sign new multi-year agreement to continue commercial operations from Old Sarum Airfield

Posted: 27th November 2019

GoSkydive has announced today that it will continue operations from Old Sarum Airfield throughout 2020 and beyond. The UK’s only tandem skydiving specialist has reached a multi-year agreement with the airfield owners at Old Sarum and will be welcoming their customers to the area for years to come.

GoSkydive jump almost 10,000 first time skydivers per annum at Old Sarum and have historically welcomed 60,000 plus visitors each year to the Salisbury area. Paul Shipway, General Manager of GoSkydive said “Today is a hugely important day for GoSkydive as we can now plan for our future at Old Sarum. Securing our agreement means we will be able to continue to employ almost 70 people at Old Sarum and of course bring visitors to the local area. Our new agreement removes the aircraft related operational constraints that had been imposed by the owners, allowing us much greater flexibility to grow as a business and provide additional opportunities for our customers to develop in the sport, including freefall skydive training and Sports Skydiving at the site. It is certainly a very exciting time for us as a business as we plan for our first operational day 1st February 2020.

Gordon Blamire, Founder of GoSkydive said “We have been in discussions with the owners of Old Sarum Airfield for some time and following their decision to change the mode of operation to dedicate the airfield to unlimited flying by commercial organisations, we are pleased we can now concentrate fully on additional growth opportunities and improving our skydiving packages even further.”
