Do they sky dive for charity? Most charities will allow the cost of the sky dive to be covered using up to 50% of the sponsorship money, however, a minimum amount of at least twice the cost of the tandem skydive should be raised. You can pay for the skydive yourself, and then the minimum fundraising target is usually halved.
Is skydiving worth the risk? Tandem skydiving – where you’re attached to an experienced skydiving instructor for your jump – has an even better safety rate, with 0.002 fatalities per 1,000 jumps on average over the past 10 years. Statistically, you’re more likely to die being struck by lightning or stung by a bee.
What is the scariest part about skydiving? Freefall is the part of the skydive that most first-time skydivers presume to be the scariest. It’s that whole falling-through-the-sky-at-120mph thing.
What are the side effects of sky diving? The Adrenaline Rush
As your body experiences increased levels of adrenaline, during the jump and immediately after, the effects of skydiving on the body physically manifest as increased heart rate, increased blood flow, dilated pupils, relaxed airways, and shallow breathing.
