What to expect
Your adventure will begin with a safety briefing followed by a scenic plane ride to a height of up to 15,000ft over spectacular views. Securely attached to your experienced tandem instructor, you will be guided through your entire skydive. As the excitement builds, your expert instructor will prepare you for the countdown and together you will make the ultimate jump out of the plane. After you experience free falling at speeds of 200kmph for up to 60 seconds, your instructor will pull the parachute and you will soar like a bird for 5-7 minutes taking in the panoramic views.
Considerations for those with mobility needs
Since tandem skydiving is accompanied, the core activity is well suited to people with mobility needs. The main considerations are how to get to and enter the aircraft. At most drop zones, on most occasions, if you need to you can drive your wheelchair directly to the plane or helicopter (on the few occasions that this isn't possible, alternative arrangements will always be made)., Getting into the aircraft will always be done with the assistance of your instructor.
What medical restrictions or clearances do I need to skydive?
We do our best to get everyone skydiving, however, safety comes first. Each disability is different and for this reason you will require a medical certificate from your doctor stating it is safe for you to skydive.
It is important to inform us of your disability before making a booking. A few things we need to know: What kind of disability do you have? (e.g. Paraplegic). How will we need to customize your experience? (e.g. Need assistance to plane and from landing point). Are you on any medication for your condition? Etc
After receiving a booking confirmation from us, we will arrange for you to meet our Drop Zone Safety officer and run through the procedures that need to be undertaken BEFORE your skydive (E.g. making sure that the harness will fit correctly and without discomfort).
Our Drop Zone Safety officer will assess you before skydiving, the final decision is up to them and if they do not think it is safe you will not be able to skydive.
Is there an age limit to skydive?
By law the minimum age to tandem skydive in Australia is 16 years old. If under 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian must be present on the day of the jump.
Is there a maximum weight limit?
Weight is an important factor in skydiving and aviation. It affects aircraft weights and balances, fuel allowances, climb rates and equipment maintenance. Once at the drop zone, all customers are subject to a weight assessment by a Tandem Master. While we'd absolutely love to be able to take everyone skydiving, we do have some limitations when it comes to weight. Instructors may take individuals up to 115kg, depending on the drop zone and subject to assessment and Safety Officer approval. Please contact the drop zone you are jumping at directly to find out the weight limit specific to that location. If 94kg or over, surcharges do apply.
What should I wear?
We recommend loose, casual clothing with fully enclosed shoes, such as running or sports trainers. Hiking boots and high heels are not appropriate. *PLEASE NOTE* Due to COVID-19 we currently cannot offer any shared clothing. Please ensure you bring your own fleece/jumper and long pants, if it's cold.
