Student Requirements

Skydiving is a sport for free spirits and those with a healthy sense of adventure. As such, we try to keep rules and regulations to a minimum. The rules we do have are there to keep us safe and ensure that our sport continues to thrive and grow. As a student, there is very little that we require.

  • You must be at least 18 years of age to skydive. We require you to bring a valid photo ID with you on the day of the jump. No ID, no jump. No exceptions
  • You must weigh less than 220 lbs to skydive using our student gear. Although our gear places hard upper limits on student weight , please note that weight is not the only factor we must take into consideration. Size and physical conditioning also play a role in determining whether we can accept a potential student into one of our training programs
  • Although skydivers are a fun-loving community, safety is always our first concern. For this reason, we cannot allow anyone to skydive who has any alcohol or other judgment-clouding medications in their system. This is particularly important for students working towards self-supervision in freefall. Our training methods require mental clarity as well as physical stamina, both of which are greatly reduced by drugs or alcohol
  • For safety reasons we don't allow students to jump in sandals, boots, or shoes with heels. Wear a pair of sneakers or sport shoes
