In Australia:

  • 18yo - You can do a tandem or AFF jump without parental consent
  • 16-17yo - You can do a tandem jump only with parental consent
  • 14-15yo - You can do a tandem jump only with parental consent (this is only available at some dropzones)
  • Younger than 14 - Special application must be made to the Australian Parachute Federation. Usually this can only happen if a parent or legal guardian of the child is a qualified skydiving instructor with hundreds of jumps under their belt.
