Skydive Capricorn

Skydive Capricorn is a locally owned and operated business located at Hedlow Airfield between Rockhampton and Yeppoon, and with a selection of skydiving options available to suit most budgets, is the ideal adventure provider in Central Queensland to experiance the rush of a life time.

Of interest, Skydive Capricorn also provides regular skydiving services from Emu Park Airfield, near Yeppoon, with beautiful beach landings available from both locations.

Most jumps with Skydive Capricorn are conducted from 12000ft which not only allows up to 45secs of freefall, but an approximate five minute canopy ride providing ample time to take-in the breathtaking views of the Capricorn Coast.

Skydivers are then picked-up by a courtesy vehicle and transported back to the facilities of Skydive Capricorn. Jumpers can also film thier adrenalin filled experiance on handycam to share with family and friends for many years to come.

Providing the means to uplift and transport skydivers to the drop zone is Cessna 182P VH-OZP, and as can be seen in photo's below, has been suitably modified to provide a safe launching platform for skydivers.
