All participants who are going to skydive in Birmingham will be asked to sign a waiver prior to performing their first skydive. Because this waiver is a legal contract, all skydivers must be at least 18 years of age. This is applicable when skydiving in Birmingham, Alabama, or any location within our network within the entire country.
How much it costs to skydive depends on the form of dive you reserve. If you prefer the most affordable option for skydiving in Birmingham, we suggest tandem skydiving. What you pay also depends upon current fuel costs in addition to the time of year. To learn more about our prices, please contact us directly and let our experts answer your questions.
Absolutely! Skydiving Birmingham has video packages that will videotape your entire skydiving day, from airplane ride to landing. Our network videographers will get a small interview with you right before boarding the aircraft and during the flight to altitude. The videographer will exit the aircraft with you and catch your entire skydiving experience on DVD! The videographer will also land prior to you to ensure that your landing is recorded on tape, as well.
Most definitely bring your digital camera for on-the-ground pictures. You can not, though, bring your personal video camera on board the plane or record your skydiving jump yourself.
The altitude that each skydive is performed at is dependent on the weather and wind for the day. Most tandem skydives are conducted at a maximum of 14,000 feet over the ground. You can expect to hit speeds of up to 120mph within the first few seconds of your freefall.
Don't fret, we'll do our very best to keep your group together.You might be able to jump all together, but consider a few factors first. There is a very short delay between you and each and every jumper from the airplane, which means that you might not freefall and canopy ride at the exact same moment. A number of our jumpers choose to go on different plane rides so they can watch their loved ones freefall then land on the ground.
Bring your family and friends with you to watch you skydive even though they do not wish to jump themselves at this time. Please keep in mind, guests who are not diving at the time will be unable to get on the plane with you.
