Cloudbase Paragliding has been tasked by the MapJumpClub with making sure that no-one uses The Map without a valid MapJumpClub membership. There will be times when this is not possible. At such times we will be relying on the honour system. Should any person be found abusing this sytem, they will be permanently barred from using the site.
Cloudbase Paragliding, nor any other party is authorized to collect any membership fees on or off The Map.
A membership can only be purchased by an individual pilot online through this site.
No school or other commercial organization is authorized to purchase membership(s) on behalf of someone else.
Doing so will result in membership termination of both the pilot and the person/organization involved. No refunds will be given.
When Cloubase Paragliding or any of their representatives are present on the site, the onus is on each commercial or non-commercial pilot to show proof of membership prior to using the site. Please carry with you proof of payment/membership. A printed or digital reciept will suffice. Please be courteous if asked to produce proof of membership/payment.
