The SOTV Dropzone

The Skydive on the Vaal (SOTV) dropzone has been operating successfully for just over a year now and was started by a group of 3 skydivers who collectively have more than 100 years experience in the sport. It is located just outside Denysville on the Vaal Dam and without any question has to rate as one of the most scenic dropzones worldwide. The view of the Vaal Dam from the air is absolutely breathtaking.

The club operates an Atlas Angel turbine aircraft which takes 9 skydivers and takes about 15 minutes to jump altitude.
