TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Acceptance of Terms and Conditions

Safety and Acceptance of Risk
Your safety is important to us. However, no skydive can be guaranteed risk free. Skydiving is an adventure sport and by its very nature involves inherent risk. Your safety is dependent on many factors and while we make every effort to manage the risks to as low as reasonably practicable, on rare occasions, residual risks can materialise. These risks include equipment not performing as required or expected, human error, unpredictable weather conditions/turbulence or the effects of altitude. Before participating you will be asked to read and sign a recognition of risk waiver and a high altitude waiver which provides more information on the risks. You will be asked to acknowledge that you understand and accept that residual risks remain that could cause or contribute to your injury or death.
