Skydiving is Safe! Skydiving is a very safe sport. And the stats prove it – as long as you read the full stats and not the ones that are trying to prove it not as safe as something else. If you’re sitting at home on the couch, then that’s probably safer than skydiving, although you may get heart disease. Are you more likely to die in a car accident than skydiving? Yes.

It might not seem like it at the time, but all of those activities are all far more dangerous, and potentially more lethal than skydiving. We are willing to bet that you do all, or most of those things without even considering the risks that may arise from partaking in those activities. Don’t get us wrong, that’s a good thing! Life is too short to spend worrying about every little thing that might happen to you.

When someone is preparing to go tandem skydiving for the first time, without a doubt, one of the most common concerns they have is the the level of safety involved in skydiving. 

While we feel that anyone who is that uncomfortable with the idea of skydiving might be better off avoiding it, we also feel it necessary to address the actual safety of skydiving, and most people would probably be surprised to find out that they engage in more risky behavior than skydiving on a daily basis.

When you do a tandem jump with a Jumpmaster, there is very little to worry about in terms of your safety. The Jumpmaster will be strapped to your back with a harness, and will stay there for the entirety of your descent. They will be the ones wearing the parachute and they will also be the ones pulling the cord.
