Who Can Go Skydiving?

Safety is our number one priority

Even if you’re feeling brave enough, a tandem skydive may not be for everyone.

There are some restrictions in place, which are ultimately for yours and your instructors safety:

  • The maximum allowable weight for any course is 13 stone for females and 15 stone for males, body mass index will also be taken into account.
  • The minimum age for parachuting is 16, applicants under 18 must have written parental / guardian consent.
  • Although you can self certify your medical form on arrival, if you have a predisposed medical condition, you will need to check with your doctor and bring any relevant paperwork with you.
    Failure to do so may stop you from jumping on the day.

Can I jump for Charity?

Can I jump for Charity?

Raise money for a charity thats close to your heart

Skydiving is a huge decision, so why not combine that with doing something really amazing and raise money for a charity close to your heart?

Here at Black Knights we have a wide range of affiliated charities that we already work with, or if you have a charity that you are already involved in, why not raise awareness and some money for them at the same time.

Skydiving is an exciting and exhilarating way to raise money, and being such a dare devil inspires people to dig a little deeper than if you went for your average run in the park!
