team & staff


the 1st European Canopy School

FlySafe Canopy School was founded in 2013 by Bruno Geada at Skydive Algarve, Portugal.

At the time he wanted to create a canopy school to meet the needs of the large number of new skydivers attending the dropzone. The canopy school grew, and now receives over 200 students a year.

In 2015 Icarus Canopies NZ founded “The Canopy School” and invited Bruno to join their team of experienced canopy pilots. Flysafe started to give the courses following “The Canopy School” syllabus, applying the knowledge and experience gained over the years.

The school also offers 1:1 and group canopy coaching and gives all the support and instruction to canopy pilots of all experience levels.

We are focused on improving the skills of beginners to advanced pilots.

You can fly your canopy better! 
Believe in it!
Be the pilot! 


courses & coaching

All courses and coachings are one day.

Jump tickets are not included in the price.

Weather permitting, each course is at least 5 jumps, however, we will continue jumping until sunset.
