FAQ'S

These are questions that we normally receive by students/first timer. If this section does not answer your questions, kindly email us via contact form given at the Contact menu.

Is skydiving dangerous?

Yes, so does driving a car.

 

Are the instructors qualified?

The club instructors are highly trained with vast experience in different fields of skydiving

 

Are there any injuries?

There are but very seldom, and if it does happen, it is due to the participants negligence and at times, unforeseen weather. Though walkie-talkies are attached to you, it is only for us to assist you for a safe landing. You are the one will be maneuvering the canopy, and you will have a better view of your surroundings from above.

 

Is my weight a factor?

It is. Due to the limited sizes of canopy that we have, we can only accept those in between 45kg-90kg. Others will be at the discretion of the Chief Instructor.

 

What if my parachute does not open?

We will guide you on how to handle such situation during the ground class.

 

What is the age limit?

18 is the minimum. Our eldest participant is 59 years old.

 

But I am afraid of heights.

A reason commonly heard. Who wouldn't, especially if you are sitting in an open aircraft at 3000ft. Remember that you have a parachute behind your back that will deploy once you leave the aircraft. The training that you undergo will give you more confidence on conquering heights.

 

Why can't we do this in Kuala Lumpur?

There are no open and safe areas to drop the participants in Kuala Lumpur. There are too many obstacles, and the local airports are busy with commercial flights.

 

How often does the club jumps?

The dates will be set by us. We try to do every weekends if there is availability of aircraft, permit and good weather.

 

Will I get a certificate?

Yes, we will award you with a certificate upon completing your jumps.
