A non-refundable deposit of $150 is required to make a booking. This will then come off the total price of the skydive. The remainder may then be paid on the day of the jump. If paying by Bank Transfer, ensure you include your name with the payment. If paying by money order, include a note with all details.
Health and Fitness
We do not usually need a Doctors Certificate from you, but you need to be in good general health to be able to participate and enjoy your skydive. We reserve the right to refuse anyone based on their age, weight or health, if we believe them to be an unacceptable risk.
Size and weight limitations
We can take people weighing up to 110kg for a Tandem Skydive, but this depends strictly on a number of things such as fitness, BMI (Body Mass Index), and suitable weather conditions. Surcharges apply if you are over 90kg and up to 110kg.
Loose comfortable clothing should be worn with snug fitting flat soled shoes such as runners.
This should have no hook lacing. We will give you a jumpsuit to go over your clothes for the jump.
Alcohol and drugs are not to have been consumed or taken, a minimum of eight hours prior to jumping.
Glasses and contact lenses maybe worn during the jump. We will give you a pair of goggles to wear for your skydive which will fit over your glasses.
How long does it take?
From the time you arrive until the time you complete your Tandem jump, it may take a couple of hours or longer.
There is paperwork to do and a briefing, followed by gearing up and then the plane ride to height.
You may finish earlier but please allow at least a half a day for your jump to be completed.
What if the weather is bad?
If the weather is such that we are unable to jump, we may wait for it to get better. We cannot normally accurately predict the weather, but you are requested to call us about one hour prior to arriving for your jump to check the weather status. If you cannot jump due to the weather, we will reschedule your jump to another time and date.
What if I need to change my booking date?
Changes done for Lower Light jumps more than 48 hours prior to the jump may be done with no penalty. Due to staffing issues, changes done less than 48hrs prior to the jump will incur a rebooking/admin fee of $70.
Postponements made for City Jumps less than 7 days prior to the jump date will incur a rebooking/admin fee of $70.
Deposits are non refundable. If the provider (Adelaide Tandem Skydiving) is unable to complete your skydive on your requested date for reasons such as bad weather, bookings are to be rescheduled to a mutually agreed date and time that is within six months of the original booking date.
Gift vouchers are to be paid in full and are valid for 6 months. They may be transferred to another person under similar weight considerations but they are non refundable.
Who will I be jumping with?
You will be jumping with one of our highly experienced Tandem Instructors who will conduct your briefing and put any of your fears at rest. Why not check out some of our a staff profiles.
Will there be others jumping at the same time as me?
There may be others in the plane jumping at the same time as you. We have two aircraft and are able to take several people for their experience at a time.
Do we land at the same place we take off from?
Yes. The plane will take off and climb to height and you will land at the same place you took off from. (Drop Zone Jumps Only).
Friends and family can see you get in the plane and then enjoy the casual atmosphere until the time you land safely back on the ground.
How old do I need to be to Skydive?
To do a Tandem, you need to be a minimum of 14 years old with parent/guardians consent.
For AFF. (Accelerated Freefall) you need to be a minimum of 16 years old with parent/guardians consent.
