The maximum allowable weight for any course is 13 stone for females and 15 stone for males, body mass index will also be taken into account. The minimum age for parachuting is 16, applicants under 18 must have written parental / guardian consent. Applicants aged 40 and over should request a British Parachute Associate Medical Certificate for completion by their doctor before their course. Those aged above 55 years are discouraged from taking the AFF course and require individual approval from the British Parachute Association's Safety and Training Committee and our club's chief instructor, Tandem Skydiving is often a better choice for those above 55 years old. Please contact us for further details if any jumpers are aged under 18 or over 39 years.

If you are over 40 years of age, you MUST download the following form, print it and get it signed and stamped by your doctor and bring it with you on the day
