Age & Health Restrictions
If you are over 50, or have had previous health problems or injuries, we require a statement from your doctor stating that you’re in acceptable shape for parachuting. If you are under 18, we will require your parents to attend the training course and sign a consent agreement. Minimum age is 16; maximum age is 63.
The weather often interferes with skydiving. It’s frustrating and it happens frequently! If it’s too windy or cloudy to jump that first weekend, we’ll reschedule your jump for the earliest convenient time. We prefer, whenever possible, to re-schedule your jump for a weekday so as to avoid over-crowding subsequent weekends. Please do not book with us if your schedule is so restricted, or you live so far away from us, that you cannot come back to jump fairly soon after the date of your class. Please understand that we do not give refunds if the weather is bad and you can’t reschedule.
During the summer, first-jump courses can be arranged for weekdays as well as weekends. The training and jumps can all be done on the same day with a small group of 2 to 5 people. Weekend courses often have more people so we cannot do all the training and jumps in one day and still provide high quality individual attention. Our usual schedule calls for some training Friday evening and the rest on Saturday morning. The jumps start on Saturday by early afternoon (weather- permitting) and take more than an hour per student. Students should plan to be available to jump on Sunday or return some other day, as time and weather will not allow everyone to jump on Saturday.
We provide a helmet (with radio receiver), goggles, a skydiving jumpsuit and gloves if needed. Students should wear clothing appropriate for the season. We don’t recommend tight clothes that restrict movement. In the cool weather a couple of layers is a good idea but definitely nothing very bulky. Runnings shoes are the recommended footwear. Steel-toed shoes or boots are a bad idea!
Courses usually start in late April and are available most weekends (and some weekdays) until late October. We do sometimes jump here over the winter but it is sporadic and infrequent due to the weather.
