What about skydiving insurance? And, do I need to declare to my current life insurers that I am taking part in skydiving?
Various companies offer specialist skydiving insurance - many can be found on the Internet. You will require personal accident and liability insurance. You will also require proof that you are in possession of this insurance. Note: we do recommend that you inform your current insurance company (companies) that you are taking part in skydiving.
I am completely new to skydiving so how will you help me?

How many jumps can I perform in a day whilst learning?
We feel up to three jumps a day is feasible depending on the individual. The key thing is to enjoy the experience and not rush - in other words, we’ll go at your pace!
Does static line experience count?
Static line experience can give you a head start in performing your first freefall skydive. But, we hasten to add it is not essential for any Learn Skydiving student to have static line experience. However, if you have completed up to 10 second delays you can start your AFF from level 3.
Do I need to provide special equipment / clothing?
No. Advanced state-of-the-art equipment will be available on an on-hire basis and is included in your course. You will need comfortable clothes to wear, non-restrictive sportswear and trainers are ideal.

All of our skydiving venues are among the best in the world. They all have local bars, restaurants, camping area, comfortable bunkhouse, hotels, apartments and chalets.
