GOSKYDIVE will continue to operate from Old Sarum Airfield throughout 2020 and beyond.

It announced today that it had reached a multi-year agreement with the airfield owners at Old Sarum.

GoSkydive jumps almost 10,000 first-time skydivers per year at Old Sarum and has historically welcomed more than 60,000 visitors each year to the 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."

Go Skydive's founder Gordon Blamire added: “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.”
