Skydiving in any form carries an element of risk, but it is much lower than many people think.
For a tandem jump, which is the most common way to start skydiving or just to do a one of jump, safety is very good. Injures are rare and fatalities are even rarer. The injury rate is about 1 in 700 and the fatality rate is about 1 in 300,000. This is the safest way to skydive. You can increase the safety of the jump by going to a reputable dropzone, paying attention to and following the instructions that the tandem instructor gives you, and being in good health and not overweight. If you can do all of these, your chances of injury or death are massively reduced further.
Many people ask, 'What if the parachute doesn't open?' This is very rare, about 1 in 1000 openings are not good enough. The main parachute will be cut away and the reserve will be opened, usually automatically. On a tandem jump, the instructor will handle all of this. Another question people ask is, 'What if the reserve doesn't open?' While there is no guarantee that the reserve will open perfectly, it is required by law to be packed by a professional with lots of experience. Reserve parachutes are also built and deployed to be more reliable. All this makes the chance of a double malfunction very unlikely.
Most injuries and deaths are the result of hard impacts with the ground under a working parachute, and are caused by the skydiver making a mistake.
Only the parachute.
Skydiving after any major surgery, such as a mastectomy, is safe once the body is healed completely. Consult your doctor to be sure your body is healed enough to handle the stress skydiving can place on the body. Be sure to inform your instructors at the drop zone where you plan to make your skydive.
No- if it did, people would not skydive. Skydiving is enjoyed by many people, can be a lot of fun, and usually ends in a safe landing.
Some countries do not record them so the total number cannot be known. However, contrary to popular belief, skydiving is a very safe sport.
Statistically, skydiving is more safe than riding in a car.
Tandem skydiving is quite safe for seniors since there is no upper limit required for skydiving programs instituted by the U.S. government. However, there are health risks that everyone attempting tandem skydiving should know. Those individuals who suffer from hypertension, cardiovascular conditions, arthritis or other musculoskeletal problems or history of stroke should consult a doctor personally. http://sky-diving-men.blogspot.com/2007/07/when-not-to-choose-tandem-sky-diving.html
If first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
Skydiving is always cool ;)
Accidents do happen in skydiving, but it is very rare, only about one accident for every one million jumps. Skydiving is very safe now, as long as you get the right training, always stay alert, and have the maintain your equipment, you'll be able to jump until the plane stops flying.
Of course. for example, "I went skydiving on saturday" or "I take skydiving lessons"
