Basic Requirements for Skydiving

Requirements for Tandem Skydiving

  • The minimum age for parachuting is 16. Anyone under 18 must have the written consent of a parent or guardian (BPA Form 106).
  • The maximum age for Tandem Skydiving is 70. Anyone aged 60 or over will require form 115b signed by a GP.
  • The maximum weight is 15 stones (95 kg) and you must not be overweight for your height. Please check our weight restrictions.
  • Parachutists need a reasonable standard of physical fitness. We have minimum fitness requirements. All participants must be physically fit, fully self-mobile with a full range of mobility and able to lift their knees to their chest unaided.
  • Unfortunately, if you have a condition or disability which reduces your mobility, you won’t be able to skydive. Please contact the club if you are unsure, as participants will be assessed on arrival and will not be able to jump if the minimum fitness requirements are not met.

 

Please read:

We must have the completed consent/medical forms prior to commencing the training course.

If you are unsure about any of the details, please call the club on 01948 841111.
