Please note that height and weight need to be in proportion. British Skydiving (the sport's governing body in the UK) have provided guidance on the suggested maximum weights allowed for each height. This table is shown on the Student Tandem Parachutist Medical Information and Declaration (BS Form 115-A) for Tandem jumpers and on the Solo Parachutist Fitness Declaration Form (BS Form 115-C) for Static Line and Accelerated Freefall jumpers. We do understand however that some people will struggle to be the suggested weight due to different sports played. If you exceed the suggested weight for your height please contact us first before booking your skydive.
