Modern parachute equipment is now extremely reliable, however In the unlikely event that the main parachute fails to operate correctly, all equipment is fitted with an emergency backup parachute, which can then be deployed.
It should go without saying that making a parachute jump is not entirely without risk. However, the tight controls which are implemented to maintain safety at all BPA affiliated parachute centres, do so very effectively. You are required to sign an indemnity waiver, accepting the possible risks before you make your skydive.
You are covered by BPA 3rd party insurance whilst making your parachute jump. This covers any damage you may potentially do, to any other person or property during your skydive. Skydive personal accident insurance is available online, from various companies, which can be found with an internet search & includes options for individual jumps, or annual cover.
The BPA govern British sport parachuting, they ensure that parachute centres operate with rules and regulations, and maintain a high standard of safety. All British parachute association instructors have attended stringent courses to gain qualifications, and the necessary skills.
Parachuting is constrained by weather, for reasons of safety. Wind speed must be less than 20 Knots for a Tandem Parachute Jump, and if there is complete cloud cover below our operating level, jumping may be suspended. Parachutes still operate normally in wet weather, but for your own comfort this is avoided.
Your Tandem jump is made from up to 10,000 feet, equivalent to 2 miles high. This gives approximately 30 seconds of freefall time, before the parachute is deployed, then a further 5 minutes descending under the parachute.
