Skydive Häme

The Swoop-beach of the Räyskälä airfield

Skydive Häme (Hämeen Laskuvarjourheilijat ry) was founded in 1971. The club has approximately 250 members, about thirty of which are active skydivers. The club makes about 1000 jumps a year out of our own Cessna-206. We train approximately 50 new jumpers per year. We operate from Vesivehmaa Airfield near Lahti, where we have our clubhouse(sauna, grill etc.) and dropzone.

We skydive all through the year(yes, even during the winter), but of course we're mostly active during the summer months, from April through October. Being a non-commercial club, the action is heavily concentrated on the weekends but weekday jumps also occur, especially during middle of the summer.

Vesivehmaa Airfield is situated right next to Lahti, about 120km from Helsinki(1h 15min drive). See the map for details.

You must have proof of a valid 3rd party liability insurance that will cover damages up to 1 000 000 € (tandem-jumps excluded). You will not be able to jump without such insurance. Please note that the insurance that comes with the membership of the Finnish Aeronautical Assosiation(SIL) is only valid if you have a permanent address in Finland.

Check our current jump prices on the prices-page.
