  1. Jez, take care, following is a cut and paste from the Diplomat Internatiomal Travel policy wording: The Diplomat International provides Accident and Sickness Medical Coverage, Travel Assistance, and Accidental Death and Dismemberment benefits to Individuals while traveling outside their Home Country, but not to the United States. Coverage is available for you, a second adult, unmarried dependent Children, or Children traveling alone.
  2. I'm sure you've checked the policy wording with respect of cover for parachuting / sport parachuting / skydiving. Regardless, it's always good to call their help line and ask specific questions. Take the name of the person you spoke to and take notes, including date and time of the call. Be sure to check maximum duration of any single trip. Although you may have bought a 12 month policy, there is likely to be a limit on any one trip. It's often 60 days. Occasionally 90 days. I had an uninsured skydiving accident in the 70's in the US. Broke my femur and various other injuries. First Hospital the ambulance took me to refused to accept me due no insurance. Next 10 days was surgery and minimum recuperation time and cost equivalent of 7 months salary. Then flew home and had next 3 months in an aussie hospital at a total cost of around a hundred dollars. Yahoo for Medicare. DO NOT skydive in the US unless you are 110% certain that you have medical cover that will cover you.

    Skydiving in Australia

    UC is a very good university. 2 hours to the surf. 2 hours to the snow. 2 hours to Picton or Moruya DZs. Nice countryside. Relaxed city. Would be a good choice.

    Headcorn AFF

    Although some years ago, I made Headcorn my home-DZ when living a couple of years in the UK. It was easy to get to, friendly crowd there, great jumping, nice pubs nearby and all in all a very good drop zone. So just try it and make your own decision. If you pay attention to all the whiners and whingers, you'll never end up going anywhere. Just find somewhere that makes your skydiving easy and fun. Then jump lots and enjoy. Life is good, Headcorn or a host of dz's can make it better. .

    Skydive Canberra

    Embrace the fear, hop in the plane, soak up the sights of Canberra city and it’s districts, feel the rush of a lifetime as you free fall with your experienced instructor, scream out with joy as you fly your parachute and glide back down and land on the green grass of Deakin Oval – back to where you started this crazy adventure. We have a unique, fun and relaxed atmosphere to ensure you have the absolute most amazing experience possible.
