Chances are higher of getting injured during other physical activities compared to skydiving – like while you commute in the morning!

Should You Try A Tandem Skydive?

Skydiving Is Safe! We think everyone should do a Tandem Skydive it at least once, life isn’t a dress rehearsal. After all the all American sport of Cheerleading is more dangerous than Skydiving – bet you didn’t know that!

When all the equipment is maintained correctly as we do, the planes are inspected and serviced as required and all the instructors hold above the norm in qualifications then the sport is inherently safe. So yes – Skydiving over the Canadian Rocky Mountains with Extreme Yeti is very safe.

In terms of catastrophic injuries, cheerleading is hands down the most dangerous sport for women, while football is the most dangerous sport for men. Depending on the study you read or the physicians surveyed, either sport can top the list.

This is one sport where the price you pay has a direct reflection on the quality, safety and age of the equipment in use and the experience level of the instructor you get. Remember, Skydiving is Safe!
