We are able to accommodate
those who have the desire to experience the extreme sport of skydiving.
Each disability may require special considerations. If there are
any concerns about whether your disability may affect your skydiving
experience, please get a doctor’s opinion. We cannot tell
you how skydiving may affect you – only you and your physician
can make the judgment.
Listed below are
the disabilities with which we are experienced:
For any skydive, communication is integral.
Tandem Skydives: Due to the tandem method’s simplicity, this
disability does not affect the tandem skydive. However, the tandem
master must be able to convey to the hearing-impaired student exactly
what is expected of them (i.e. legs up during landings). If desired,
the services of a signing interpreter with knowledge of the sport
of skydiving can be offered at a rate of $75.
AFF: Communication is key here. AFF Level I requires a 4-6 hour
long First Jump Course where the student learns everything they
need to know to make their first solo skydive. To attend this course,
a signing interpreter with knowledge of the sport of skydiving will
be necessary. This service can be provided for an additional charge
of $75 per student.
Tandem Skydives: Due to the tandem method’s simplicity, there
are no special considerations concerning the sight-impaired.
AFF: Unfortunately, sight is integral to solo training, so we can
not offer this service for those that do not have corrected vision
Due to the simplicity of the tandem method, there is only a minor
effect. It is possible special equipment adjustments may be required,
and extra preparation time may be needed. For this reason, we require
paraplegics to come out during the weekdays due to the additional
length of time this skydive may require, so that we can focus on
the safety of your skydive. The student will need to lift their
legs, and must have the control and strength to do so. There is
a high risk of bone injury, so it is strongly suggested that you
make this decision with your doctor.
The ability to skydive will be determined by the Safety and Training
Advisor at Skydive Elsinore. If we are unsure, then a doctor’s
note may be requested.
