  • At 14 it isn't likely. Most places require you to 18 years old to jump but some will let you go at 16. The best thing to do is call the dropzones in your area and ask them. You can get a list from One thing you can do is fly in the vertical wind tunnels.

    There are a few websites you need to check out to get good info on skydiving. is the website of the United States Parachute Association, the governing body for sport parachuting in the United States. There is a list of member dropzones on the website along with all sorts of great info on the sport.

    The official site for the British Parachute Association is:

    The official site for the Canadian Parachute Association is:

    The official site for the Australian Parachute Federation is: is another great resource for everything about skydiving, including dropzones in the United States and the rest of the world, and some BASE too. is the web site for Brian Germain, one of the best people on the planet to get information on canopy flight from. is just fun and a good place to feel like you’re at the drop zone when you can’t physically be there. is the website for the top vertical relative work team right now. Arizona Arsenal won the 2007 USA Nationals.

    If you’re not sure about skydiving but want to fly you should look at the vertical wind tunnels. is the website for skyventure which operates many tunnels in the United States, Europe and Asia. I love flying in the tunnel. I don’t do it very much, I’d rather spend my money on skydives, but it is a great place to learn, work on my flying skills and just have a lot of fun!

    Make sure that you contact the drop zone you want to jump at directly. There are a few scams out there, one of which is 1800skyride. They will take your money and send you to any dropzone they want too but only about three dz’s in the country except skyride tickets. So please, please, please contact the dropzone directly.

    The tandem is a great jump. I’d get video too. I made one tandem in June of 2005. In August of 2005 I came back to start student training (good info about student training at and got my license. I’ve been jumping as much as I can and have a few hundred jumps. I have earned the USPA Coach Rating and plan to continue to jump for fun and help teach others how to fly and be safe in the air. There is nothing better than flying your body through the sky with your friends. The canopy is a lot of fun to fly too. It only gets better and better. Every weekend seems to be more fun than the one before. You will get into the sport for the rush, but you stay because of the people. I love this sport and I sincerely hope that you’ll become a full time skydiver and I’ll be able to make some jumps with you at a boogie!

    Blue Skies! Black Death! And EFS!!!!

  • Age Limit For Skydiving

  • Skydiving Age Limit

  • There are virtually no dropzones in the United States that will allow you to skydive if you are under the age of 18. I have heard of a small number of dropzones who will allow you to make a jump at age 16 with parental consent.

    If you were personally acquainted with someone who is a tandem skydiving instructor or who owns a dropzone then there is a VERY small chance that they would allow you to make a jump at your age, but the chances are not good because of the legal liability that they would have.
