  3. That's right: anyone can jump out of a plane. However, not everyone should. While jumping is optional, landing is absolutely mandatory, and it has taken the skydiving industry many years to set standards to make sure everyone in the sky is as safe as possible. Here is your quick guide to the basic physical requirements of this sport. How old do you have to be to skydive? Many skydiving landing areas in the United States (and at various overseas locations) are members of the United States Parachute Association (USPA). As such, these facilities adhere to the basic USPA safety requirements as well as safety guidelines set by the canopy manufacturers. These "BSRs" require any skydivers to be at least 18 days old on the day of the jump, whether jumping alone or with a tandem passenger. Some American dropzones make exceptions for players under 16, for example West Tennessee Skydiving and Skydive Altas (in Nebraska). However, this practice has become somewhat less common following a skydiving accident in which a 16-year-old girl was injured. European declining zones are more amenable to the idea. Interesting note: there is no upper age limit, as long as the jumper is intact. What are the physical requirements for jumping? Remember: Skydiving is a sport. While the tandem skydiving experience will not require much of you, you will delve deeper into the sport of the sport. As a student leader you have to wear more than 30 pounds of equipment, repeatedly get confused by opening the shock, main body neck, maneuver your parachute, "run out" your landing quota, and if you land outside the designated landing zone, soar back into the dropzone . (Ahem: The liver may have been battered.) You will also need to manage your weight within a narrow range so that it does not fall outside the narrow weight range of your machine. In short: for the best experience, you'll need to be above your physical game. Is there a weight limit for skydiving? Tandem passengers who weigh more than the recommended limit put themselves and the tandem pillow at risk of injury. Expect to step up on a scale when you get to your tandem appointment to determine if you fall within the dropzone's posted weight guidelines. If you don't, you won't jump. It's not personal. Skydivers than sports skydivers have less scope, because they are only putting themselves in physical danger. The dropzone should remain in the inherent "safety zone", yet the boundaries remain in place. The general consensus is that weight becomes an issue for new air jumpers who weigh more than 220 pounds and aren't really athletic. Sedentary people have more difficulty learning to skydive, as they struggle to perform free-fall maneuvers, and to clean themselves up after a hard landing. (Stabilized skydivers also tend to have a hard time performing a parachute landing properly, which can save a bird's bones if the landing is exceptionally weak.) When skydivers reach a weight of 230 pounds, most spare canopies are no longer legal to use. At the 235-pound mark, most dropzones consider even the athletic possibilities to be too much of a liability, because the skipper will likely need to use converted tandem equipment in order to make a jump (or risk serious injury while descending). For these reasons, jumpers that do not fit in weight and relative weight are often turned away. Are there additional health standards that you must meet in order to perform a skydiving? Even for a healthy person, skydiving puts unique stresses on the body. Skydivers are regularly exposed to 30-degree temperature differences, large changes in atmospheric pressure and extreme emotional stress, along with the bumps and bruises that accompany the area. The declaration of pre-existing medical conditions is non-negotiable. Impaired cardiovascular or lung function, unconscious illness, and respiratory impairment are a big deal in heaven. That being said, surprisingly few people have conditions that actually prevent them from skydiving. A conversation with your doctor won't hurt. Should you be afraid of skydiving? No no no no no. Absolutely. One of the greatest benefits of skydiving is its unique ability to teach you to manage fear. You'll enter the sport as pretty much all of us do: intense fear, largely. In retrospect, you'll look back on those early days and be amazed at how far you've come (and how learning to manage that fear has changed your life in so many beautiful ways).

  9. I don't know if this is a topic that has ever been discussed, but i wanted to bring it up because I haven't came across any post. I've read plenty of articles debating a variety canopy flight and deployment characteristics, but nothing about altitude loss. I'm particularly interested in talking about the snivel/altitude loss of canopies. I understand it's nothing serious to consider when skydiving because the deployment altitude is higher than base jumping per say. However, it's something i'm personally interested in learning about and wanted to see if anyone else had any input? I've read articles about the Pilot or Safire 3 having severe snivel characteristics, so how does that relate to altitude loss? - Is a snivel characteristic correlated to altitude loss? - Is a hard opening caused by the canopy opening quicker, thus losing less altitude? Interested to see if anyone has any input?
  10. Ever tried searching "skydiving" on Youtube? It's a mess, between a million Fortnite videos and vlogger's first tandem jumps it's a nightmare finding quality content on the platform. So we've made it a bit easier for you by running through the last year of skydiving footage and selecting a few of the best videos we could find, so you don't have to wade through the crap. Below is a list (in no particular order) of some of the best skydiving videos we came across during our search, whether it be quality camera work, the vibe of the video or something that makes you want to get up in the sky. We've intentionally omitted a number of wingsuit videos as we'll be bringing you a special collection for those soon. If you have any additions drop us a link in the comments and we'll put together a part two with your suggestions. 1. Eye Candy This video is just awesome to watch! Nothing too crazy taking place, but the camera work provides some truly awesome eye candy. Who wouldn't want to skydive after watching this? 2. The Highest Swing Everyone loves balloon jumps, right? Well we've got a balloon jump and a swing jump in one on this. A cool watch for sure! 3. Sister's By the Sea We're a sucker for boogie footage. There's something about the community vibe and the awesome sunset jumps that make boogie compilations some of our favourites. 4. A Compilation Alright, enough with the malfunctions for now - this is the only compilation in the list, this video showcases various jumps, some of which are definitely worth being reshared. While this video was uploaded this year the compilation itself uses clips from a number of jumps spanning over a few of the recent years gone by. 5. The Story of Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld From the creator: "In 1992, professional skydiver Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld boarded a plane for a routine training jump. Six weeks later, he awoke from a coma to discover that a terrible accident had crippled his body and shattered his dream of becoming a World Champion." 6. Ballistic 2019 Skydive Burnaby in Canada hosted Ballistic 2019, a new skills camp. Overall this video just has some cool flying scenes that will make one want to get into the air. 7. Invasion 2018 Despite the date on the title, this video was uploaded in early January and showcases some awesome scenes out of the Invasion boogie at Skydive Sebastion. 8. FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championships 2019 We can't just neglect our tunnel rat brothers and sisters. This year's FAI World Indoor Championships showed just how far the sport has come in the past decade. 9. Maja Kuczynska - Unstoppable One of the coolest videos of this year that incorporates both indoor tunnel flying and skydiving. A question often asked, is how do experienced tunnel flyers handle their first few skydives, and are they able to easily translate their skills from the tunnel to the sky - this video answers that question. 10. Skydiving Onto a Motorbike From the creator: "Incredible footage shows an Australian skydiver jumping out of a plane to land on a fast-moving motorbike in New South Wales. Skydiving instructor Scott Hiscoe performed the high-adrenaline stunt with Red Bull motocross athlete Robbie Maddison over the skies of Wollongong. In what was reportedly an Australian first, the pair achieved the stunt on their third attempt. Mr Scott said: “It was always going to be a challenge with a lot of things having to line up to be successful, but who better to do it with than Robbie Maddison? Pulling this stunt off over my own hometown of Wollongong made it even better.”

  13. Hello everyone, I am very, very new to this sport, I've had 2 tandems and 2 solos in April and then, bam, tore my acl on a trampoline. Currently I am 3 months post with a cadaver graft and itching to get out there. I wanted to try a tandem but both the PT and doc say no.....so my plan is to wait the full 9 months and start over with ground school in March. So my question to you all is, with those of you with knee injury how do you deal with landings (I was terrified of the landing before my injury) And the bigger question will I every be able to jump again?

  19. Hey everybody, I'm pretty new to the sport but I love skydiving but before my passion for skydiving started my passion for business mechanics was and still is going strong. I'm really curious what the day to day operation looks like behind the scenes, what are some of the biggest hurdles you have to overcome to start a dropzone? What's the most difficult part of keeping a good dropzone up and running?
