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.

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.

“I am 56 year old with mobility issues but I succeeded in the skydive because of the excellent support and care given to all of their clients. Lots of banter and fun but also very clear training and firm instructions. This made me feel safe. My instructor, Robert, spoke and encouraged me all the way up in the plane and all the way down. This was a magnificent experience and I would do it again in a heart beat. ”
