Gran Canaria is a sport club dedicated to promoting sport parachuting
in the following disciplines.
GRAN CANARIA was founded by Francisco(paco) Romero, who has been in
this sport for almost 29 years in the canary islands. He was the one
that opened the first sport club in the canaries, thus making the parachuting
sport possible in our territory since 1977.
