Burble Powered manifest

We work with the Burble Dropzone Management Software. You can still let manifest put you in a load, like in the old days. However, Burble provides you the possibility to take more control, edit and have an overview through the BurbleMe app.

Examples are manifesting yourself in a load, updating your profile, see your account balance and history or send your current location when you land out. Below you’ll find a short explanation of the main functions and methods.

Explainer

1: Burble account

When you jump with us, you need a jump account with all administrative information. You can create this account and fill in your personal details. It saves a lot of time when you have done this prior to arriving at our dropzone. So, it is highly recommended.

You can create a Burble account through the Burble website or, even better, through the BurbleMe app (tip: the app is very useful for manifesting yourself or to see how many jumps you still have on your account). Download BurbleMe iOS in the Appstore or for Android in the Playstore.

2: waiver

We also need a signed waiver from you.You can do this beforehand online (click here) or you can do this in our shop on one of our iPads. The waiver will be linked to your Burble account.

3: Add balance to your account

Now we can add your jump tickets to your account. You can pay in cash or with card. We accept VISA and MasterCard credit cards.

4: credentials check

Now that your account has been created and topped up, someone at manifest will check the following:

  • Logbook
  • Licence
  • Insurance
  • Medical
  • Harness test (if applicable)
  • Container logcard *
  • Reserve logcard / validity *
  • AAD logcard / validity *

Applicable when you jump with your own gear instead of rental gear.

5: check-in

When everything is in order, you can check-in using the BurbleMe app and manifest yourself in a load.

Not a fan of self-service apps or is your phone out of juice? No worries; everything can still be done the old-fashioned way. We still love putting you in a load manually and/or provide you with information about your account balance.
