SKYDIVE AUSTRAL

WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE MAKING OF SKYDIVE AUSTRAL?

Skydive Austral was created by Chris Wilkinson-Pearce (skydive fanatic) and Gaetan Paquay (aviation fanatic) and is the 1st ever company and/or pioneer who created and started skydiving in Mauritius. SDA developed this activity on the base of well-known and serious international standard procedures which have been accepted by the Mauritius Civil Aviation. From the beginning of our project, we had always a very good, serious and constructive relation with the Department of Civil Aviation in Mauritius and we would like to thank them again for this.


WHEN DID SKYDIVE AUSTRAL OPEN ITS DOORS TO THE PUBLIC AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE MAURITIUS TO LOCATE YOUR BUSINESS?


We, Chris and Gaetan, first jumped in tandem in July 2009 and opened our operation in October 2009. We believed that Mauritius offers a good potential for this type of activity with its very dynamic tourist industry and as simple as it can be, the view of the island and its turquoise sea is breath taking when seen from the sky. We thought it would be an unforgettable experience for a tourist to skydive on top of this paradise!


YOU’VE BEEN OPEN FOR OVER 3 YEARS NOW – WHAT IS THE RESPONSE OF THE PUBLIC?

We are open since nearly 3 years and half now and we are still having a great response from the public! We are rated since more than 2 years now the TOP activity on Tripadvisor in Mauritius


HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ESTABLISHMENT?

We are serious, very professional and also we want to keep this very special close relationship with our guests to make this experience unforgettable. We want to give time to our clients who are great people to us and it is important for us to treat everyone in a special way! One word can describe our activity: WOW!!!! That’s what everybody says when landing!


WE ARE PROBABLY STATING THE OBVIOUS! WHAT IS THE FAVOURITE ACTIVITY AND WHY?

10000’ Tandem Skydive of course! The UNIQUE Mauritius experience! After a short briefing with a professional instructor explaining a few things about the activity, the client will have a flight of +/-25 minutes in our Cessna C182 to reach the altitude of 10000’. At that altitude, hooked to his instructor, the tandem pair is jumping out of the plane (the 1st WOW moment!!!!!!) for a 35-40seconds free fall reaching the falling speed of 200km/h followed by the opening of the parachute (2nd WOW moment!!!!!) for a quiet and peacefull flight until landing on our drozone in Mon Loisir, Riviere du Rempart. This is done completely under the control of your international experience professional tandem skydiving instructor.


WHAT IS THE MISSION OF YOUR COMPANY?

The mission of Skydive Austral is to offer the one in a life time experience that you will NEVER forget and this is done always in the safest manner. We are the Adrenaline company! Anyone who comes to us feeling a little bit nervous leaves us absolutely ecstatic! We have then we have accomplished our mission.

WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY DIFFERENT?

We are the only ones offering Skydiving in Mauritius. We are a very experienced team whose goal is to share the passion and excitement of a 35-40 seconds free fall and a few minutes flight under a parachute !!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD?


Any one in a normal physical condition is able to Skydive. It is just a matter of overcoming the anxiety of stepping out of a plane at 10 000’ feet but then it is just pure en-dorphins
