Terms and Conditions
If you are undertaking a charity skydive/parachute jump in order to raise funds for charity and wish your costs to be recovered from sponsorship raised, you must agree to raise the minimum amount of sponsorship money as stated.
If, due to bad weather, or any other reason beyond the control of the parachute centre, you are unable to jump on the agreed date, you should arrange an alternative date with the parachute centre.
In return for your booking deposit (valid for one year), Skydive Zone will make the arrangements necessary for you to undertake the parachute jump of your choice at a parachute centre near to you or elsewhere if you agree. Skydive Zone will act as your agent when arranging your chosen parachute jump, not that of the parachute centres.
Parachute centres have limited places available, instructors and equipment have to be pre-booked, therefore, if you fail to give sufficient notice of cancellation or fail to attend on the day of you jump you may be required to pay another deposit.
Having paid the balance of the cost of your training and parachute jump, you will be covered for up to £2,000,000 as a member of the British Parachute Association Liability Insurance. This insurance does not cover you for personal injury or death and both Skydive Zone and any charities represented recommend that, if you wish to take out additional insurance, that you make your own arrangements to acquire adequate cover.
To make any parachute jump or skydive, you must be at least 16 years of age. If under 18 years of age parental / guardian written permission is required in addition to parental / guardian signature on the Declaration of Fitness to Parachute form or the Student Tandem Parachutist Declaration of Fitness form. Failure to produce this to the Parachute Centre will mean that you are unable to jump.
If aged over 40 you must have the Declaration of Fitness to Parachute form or Student Tandem Parachutist Declaration of Fitness form (for Tandem Parachute jumps only) signed and stamped by a GP. These forms are included in the information pack provided in your confirmation email/letter.
Once again, failure to produce this form to the Parachute Centre means that you will be unable to jump.
Please note that age and weight restrictions apply. Skydive Zone will advise you accordingly when making your booking.
I understand that sport parachuting is an adventure sport, when participating in such sport I understand that there is a risk of injury or death regardless of the standard of training, supervision and equipment provided.
I accept the risk inherent in the sport and agree that I and my representatives indemnify and hold harmless Skydive Zone and any charities represented against claim or claims whether from myself or my representatives which arise from any accident or incident resulting in any loss or damage including bodily injury and death.
