SKYDIVE | Questions & Answers (FAQ)
Is there a weight limit?
Yes, weight limit 105kg or 220lbs. (We don't want to be back on ground before the parachute opens:-) Body proportion and general fitness may influence a safe landing. You should be able to lift your legs for landing
What about bad weather?
Bad weather happens. Call and we discuss the options. Deposit will be refunded in case we decide not to jump due to bad weather
How old do I have to be?
There is no age limit. Your body has to fit the harness and be in good health. Under age need parental consent

How long will it take?
2-3 hrs, expect delays due to weather and your friends jumping first
Can I get my skydive filmed?

Can I bring my own camera?
Because of safety reasons no wrist or helmet cameras such as Go Pro's allowed.
Can I breathe or talk in freefall?
If you don't breathe you get in trouble :-) and if you talk, you breathe!
What happens if the parachute doesn't open?
Sh... pray, swear and stumble your last words into the camera. Do you see cows as aints, you are safe. When you see cows as cows, open the parachute. When you see aints as cows... too late! There is a back up chute and an Automatic Activation Device. It even opens the reserve parachute if you knock down your tandemmaster by screaming to loud
