What is the age limit for skydiving
If you don't know whether skydiving is for you, you could try a tandem jump first. But if you feel like investing more of your own initiative, then you should book a trial jump. The feeling of having made the jump yourself will remain unforgettable and strengthen your self-confidence forever.
Our theoretical lessons begin on Fridays at 5:00 p.m.
All jumpers are on terms with each other, and we do the same with you, right from the start.
On Saturday there is more theory and some practical exercises, such as the landing case.
On Sunday your free fall instructors will be assigned to you and then you will start jumping.
You jump with a steerable parachute and an electronic opening machine as a backup. Your jump will be recorded on Actioncam and you will be happy to receive a copy. We will help you steer the umbrella by radio. Landing is no harder than jumping off the kitchen table.
By the way, you don't have a fear of heights when flying in the skipping machine or when jumping or while gliding.
Fear of heights is something you get on tall buildings. (All people have, is also normal and right)
Safety is always and absolutely in the foreground in our sport. All of our parachutes have electronic type opening machines CYPRES the latest generation. The parachutes are regularly serviced and packed by certified parachute packers.
All of our instructors are highly experienced, have a license from the Association of German Parachutists, and were once beginners themselves, so they understand exactly how you feel.
On Sunday evening every first jumper receives an official certificate and should endure the admission ritual by the experienced jumpers! After that you can wear the coveted skydiver badge, the Curved pin.
The jump training is not a one-off test of courage, and our sport has nothing to do with the military. You can see that in the high proportion of women of over 30%. Above all, it is fun to free fall and to fly with the paraglider, but there is always a strong adrenaline rush.
The first jump is really big and is a lot of fun with the beginner troop we put together! Spectators are welcome to be there to watch the action or to photograph the landing.
After the first jump, it will be easy for you to decide whether skydiving is for you or not.
AFF training method
The very first jump is at an altitude of 4000m and you immediately experience the free fall, but in the direct company of 2 instructors who secure the jump. Your teachers guarantee that you fall stable and that you open your umbrella at the right height.
Normal fitness is sufficient. Any doctor can issue a medical certificate, i.e. a certificate "suitable for jumping".
The form from the German Skydiving Association is available in our "Download" area. Anyone with average health can jump! However, you should weigh no less than 45 kg and be at least 1.55 m tall, but no heavier than 115 kg. A BMI over 30 is not acceptable. In cases of doubt, we would like to see the person at our place and talk about it.
Glasses or contacts are no problem.
The minimum age is 14 years (consent is required up to the age of majority in the Legal guardian required), there is no maximum age.
Normal comfortable clothing and sports shoes. No shoes with hooks. You cannot take cameras with you when jumping.
There is a communal kitchen for self-catering.
Sometimes pizza is ordered together. Sometimes there is a barbecue.
