F.A.Q.

What if I have a fear of heights?

Many skydivers have a fear of heights but still skydive. You will not have the feeling of height during your jump, neither in the airplane nor in freefall. Because you are jumping from 13, 500 feet, you will not have no physical references to how high up you are; therefore, you will not experience any sensation of height.

Should I make a reservation, and how long in advance?

Yes, it is best to book ahead. The more in advance you book, the better the chance to get the day/time you prefer. We suggest that you reserve one week in advance. It is always possible to call last minute, but your choices may be limited. You will be asked for a credit card number in order to confirm your reservation.

Must I pay when I make a reservation?

No, you pay only on the day of your jump. However, you will put down a deposit of $50 per person for the reservation.

Can I cancel my reservation?

Yes, If you cancel with 48 hours of advanced notice you will not incur any charges. If you cancel within 48 hours of your reservation date, your deposit of $50 per person will not be refunded.

What happens if there is bad weather?

If the sky is too cloudy or if the winds too strong, jumping is restricted. It is rather unusual to cancel an entire day of skydiving. However, if this should happen, we will move your reservation without charge to any time that is convenient for you. If the weather looks uncertain on the day of your jump, we invite you to phone us before you travel out to the drop zone.

Are gift certificates refundable and do they have an expiration date?

No. Gift certificates are not refundable and there are no expiration dates on certificates. They can be used in subsequent seasons. However, any increase in the rates will result in a charge for the price difference on the gift certificate at the time of the jump.

What is the minimum age?

The minimum age to make a tandem skydive is 14 and the minimum age to take the PFF training is 16. For anyone under the age of majority (18), a parental consent form must be signed by a parent before being allowed to jump. Click here to download a parental consent form.

Is there a maximum weight?

The maximum weight is 250 pounds (115 kilos). For anyone exceeding 235 pounds (107 kilos), an additional $20 supplemental fee will be charged.

How should I dress?

Dress comfortably, and according to the day’s weather. Sport clothes and running shoes are appropriate. You will be provided with a jump suit to go over your clothes. Do not wear sandals or flip-flops! Remember, it is a bit colder at 13,500 feet than on the ground! The temperature will be around 0 degree Celsius.

When jumping out of an airplane, does one have the same heart-dropping sensation like on a rollercoaster?

No. Because the airplane is moving steadily through the air, you will not have any dropping sensation when exiting from the airplane. If you were to jump from a bridge or a helicopter, however, you would have this sensation because you would be jumping from a still position.
