elderly skydivers Can't Post

A couple of years ago I broke the fatalaties down by age and was surprised that the over 50s contibuted about 30%.

As health problems, sucu as heart disease affect older people more, at what age should jumpers consider regular checkups?

I suspect the recent Oz fatality was health related, based on the news reports. There was also the South African one in the last couple of months.

I am approaching 40 and decided that I would have a heart stress test every 2 years after the South Afrcan death. I've often been asked why I am out of breath after a jump and the incident prompted me to get a checkup. Fortunately in my case I discovered that I have excersize induced asthma and a $5 puffer has literally changed my life. Really wish I had known 20 years ago...
