What to Wear
Make sure you bring a pair of flat soled running shoes and wear comfortable non restrictive clothing. We do have jumpsuits available if you are coming on the spur of the moment.If you are jumping during winter bring a warm jumper as it can get cold up there. If you are jumping during summer you can wear shorts and T-shirt. No singlets or vests please.
We do not jump in rain and we are restricted by a wind speed limit. If the weather conditions are unsuitable on the day that you are booked in to jump you may receive a phone call advising you that your jump has been delayed.As weather conditions are difficult to predict and can change frequently your jump may be put on hold at anytime before you exit the aircraft.
Minimum Age 12 years
The age minimum for jumping in Australia is 12 years. Any person under the age of 18 years needs a parent or legal guardian to accompany them in order to read and sign our indemnity form.
The standard weight limit is 95kg. Each tandem passenger must be weighed at the office prior to jumping. This weight limit is enforced for safety reasons. If you’re over 95kg and under 110kg we would still love to take you skydiving. There are a few conditions that will impact on your jump such as wind direction and strength. Please contact the office on (07) 5599 1920 or email@example.com to further discuss your skydive.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no upper age limit for skydiving, provided you are fit and healthy you can go for a tandem skydive! We recommend tandem passengers over 60 years of age seek medical consent from a medical practitioner prior to making a booking. Our oldest customer to date was 90 years of age!
