Everest Skydive is entering its third year of extreme aerial adventure. Everest Skydive in 2010 will be made from Tara Air's Pilatus Porter aircraft at Syangboche and Fishtail Air’s AS 350 B3 chopper at the world's highest drop zone at Gorak Shep, Kala Patthar Plateau. The aircrafts will be flown by experienced pilots having skydiving ratings.

The test flights for Everest Skydive operation performed on October 2009 at Syangboche and Gorak Shep concluded successfully.

Get ready to take the leap - Join Everest Skydive 2010!

Everest Skydive 2010 continues to lead the way in High altitude Skydiving Adventures. Our experience gained in 2008 & 2009, combined with an elite team of experts from around the globe, highly specialized in all aspects of parachuting activities, positions us as an experienced world leader in extreme adventure.

Wendy Smith, as Chief Co-ordinator for the Everest Skydive, brings a life time of experience to our team and once again will be our Director of aerial cinematography once again.[] Omar Alhegelan - World champion and pioneer of freefly skydiving will also rejoin our aerial camera team for 2009. Doctor Ryan Jackson, who lead the medical team in 2008, has a few thousand skydives, holds qualifications in parachuting, experience in mountaineering and loves sailing. Tom Noonan, Tandem Master for the 2008 Everest Skydive, brings with him many years as a master, and is highly qualified in Tandem and parachuting equipment instruction.

We are excited about our partnership with charity, Global Angels. We will be bringing back Founder, Molly Bedingfield, to Tandem Skydive with us again and we will be launching the Global Angels Flying Academy to raise funds for educational support of vulnerable children and environmental sustainability projects in Nepal and Asia. Each skydiver will "earn their wings" as they jump. []


This is good news for all of you that have had discussions about operating Skydiving over the highest drop zone at Kalapatthar 17192 ft (5542 m) where Wendy Smith and Tom Noonan made successful landings last year using Fishtail Air's AS 350 B3 Helicopter.

This landing location is approximately two miles from the Climbing Base Camp of Mt. Everest. It is now also complimented for hosting the historic Cabinet meeting held by the Nepal Government to draw attention of the world for climate change towards rapid melting of the Himalayan Glaciers.

Since Wendy and Tom have had first hand experience of this Jump, thorough considerations have been made to run the jumps in the safest manner, we have decided to allow this Jump to people with a minimum of 750 Jumps and holding a D licence in skydiving. To make jumpers familiar in the Himalayan Environment, a test Jump shall be performed from low level, 20000-22000 ft over Syangboche Airport, landing at 12500 feet, as a preparation before the Jump over Kalapatthar.

We have prepared and trained ground Crew, mountain guides and safety officers, who will be waiting to receive and co-ordinate jumpers back to a lower altitude by Helicopter after there skydive and landing at kalapatther. Information gained by our 2009 Expedition concluded that the Kalapatthar Jump can be done by Helicopter from the height of 23000ft and not allow high altitude drift in this extremely dangerous location. Tandem Jumping will not be carried out here on grounds of safety.

So, the Worlds highest jump location shall be serviced by Fishtail Air's AS 350 B3 Helicopter - available for Solo skydiving with experienced jump masters. Parachute federation procedures, Jump licence's and logbooks will be checked and cleared by our Chief safety officer. Everest Skydive supplies all equipment for the adventure.
