Operation Pegasus Jump

  • Open to Veterans, Serving Military and First responders

Veterans, Serving Military and First responders are considered to be at a greater risk for developing Operational Stress Injuries and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder than most other occupations.

The Operation Pegasus Foundation is partnering with Campbell River Skydive Centre who will host and conduct the First Jump Course in order to build robust relationships within the Veteran, Serving Military and First Responder community and to challenge the individual by taking them out of their comfort zone.

Event Details:
Our main event will be a First Jump Course, with the option to continue through the student process. as well as hanging out with old friends and making new ones. There will be a meet and greet with a BBQ on the first and last day of each rotaion. There will be two rotations this year. Please see specific dates below in the schedule.

Campbell River Skydive Centre is the only veteran owned drop zone in Canada. Their primary staff volunteering their time for this event consist of many retired Search and Rescue Technician, Airborne Regiment and Jump Company Veterans who are all certified skydive coaches and instructors.

The curriculum includes detailed instruction on the operation and use of the equipment as well as practical training using a suspended harness and an aircraft mock-up.The ground school takes approximately 4 to 5 hours and once completed, your first jump will be made from 3,500 feet where your instructor will initiate the deployment of your main parachute as you leave the airplane.  After you’re under a good parachute, you’ll maneuver it yourself while under radio guidance from an instructor on the ground. We train you to fly and land your parachute. Once you have landed, your instructor will provide a full debrief of your jump with you and will fill out your logbook.

Once your first jump has been completed you have the option to continue through the student progression to work your way up to achieving your solo license.
