Also asked, can you skydive at age 15?

The minimum age to go skydiving is 16 years old. If you're aged between 16 and 18, you'll need the signed consent of a parent or legal guardian. There is no maximum age to go skydiving.

Also, how do you skydive under 18? Generally speaking, to make a tandem skydive or begin skydiving training in the USA, you go to your local drop zone, sign a legal waiver of liability, pay, make your jump, and then tip your tandem instructor (please!). Because there is a waiver involved, you must be at least 18 years old to skydive.

what states can you skydive at 16?

These regulations are in place for tandem skydiving in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, as well as the rest of the United States. There are no physical reasons that a teenager can't skydive. The reasons lie within the litigious reality of the United States.

How scary is skydiving?

The answer is yes and no.
Truthfully, the majority of skydivers who have thousands of skydives under their belt still feel a big spike in their heart rate as they move towards the door. It's natural and kind of scary. The reality is that as soon as you leave the airplane, you're no longer scared.

Can I go skydiving?

You can jump wearing a parachute or without one
Okay, it's not quite as extreme as that. Beginners can choose from two types of skydiving: accelerated freefall (AFF) or tandem freefall. But before you even put on the parachute, you need to complete a ground course that can last several hours.
