Can I take my smartphone or own camera up for the skydive?
The civil aviation authority does not allow unlicensed Tandem passenger to take up any items for the skydive. You are too busy with your skydive to look after your cameras. It may very easily get lost or broken and we can not risk dropping it in freefall or under the parachute. The Skydive Instructors are trained and have to use their own special camera systems and amounts which are equipped with certain safety backups.
Is parachuting safe?
Parachuting is an extreme sport that involves some risks. However, when it is performed following the rules and supervised by professionals, the risk of injury is very low. Accidents are rare, and usually by experienced parachutists who are injured due to their own recklessness.
Our equipment is at the cutting edge of parachute technology and is inspected according to standards established by the Federal Aviation Administration. All of our parachutes are fitted with two canopies and an Automatic Activation Device; if at a certain altitude the parachute is not opened, this device will automatically open the emergency parachute.

It depends on the nature of the physical disability, the person’s level of mobility and the weather conditions of the day. Please contact us before, we might have to prepare certain special equipment and/or might request a medical statement by a doctor.
Can I jump if I have previously experienced a dislocated shoulder?
It is not recommended to jump if you have had previous shoulder dislocations. We cannot guarantee that your shoulder will not dislocate again during freefall. That being said, many people have jumped with this condition by holding their arms across their chest, rather than holding them out in the air during freefall. This helps reducing the risks of your shoulder dislocating again during freefall.
