All tandem customers must review Student Tandem Medical Declaration (Form 115A) for medical requirements and eligibility for self declaration of fitness.
Having read Student Tandem Medical Declaration (Form 115A), if you are unable to sign the form due to medical conditions, injuries or anything listed you must bring a copy of the Student Tandem Doctors Certificate (Form 115B) signed and stamped by your doctor instead. Please note that The National Health Service does not provide this advice and you may be charged for it. You may also have to pay for any additional tests or referrals needed to clarify your risk.
For safety reasons, strict weight restrictions have been put in place based on a risk assessment. Any person exceeding these weight limits will not be able to complete their tandem skydive. 14 stone (89kgs), is the maximum permitted weight. The Chief Instructor can authorise an increase up to 15 stone (95kg). This is generally for male participants only and is dependant on the individuals physical fitness, their age and with height/weight being taken into consideration. Any clarification on this must be directed to the Chief Instructor prior to initial arrival.
Unfortunately there are certain medical conditions may prevent you from taking part in a skydive. Please refer to the Student Tandem Doctors Certificate (Form 115B) for further details. If you have a medical condition or disability, please get in touch with us directly for an assessment of suitability. More information on skydiving for disabled people.
