Tandem Sky Diving Travel Insurance

If you are taking a trip and will be doing a Tandem Sky Dive, you should make sure you have a Travel Insurance policy in place before you leave your home.

A Sky Diver jumps out of an Airplane at an altitude of about 4,000 metres and free falls for a while before deploying a parachute to slow down to a speed that allows for a safe landing. Almost all people experience their very first jump together with an experienced and trained Instructor. This happens in a so called Tandem Sky Dive. It is the responsibility of the Instructor to make the entire dive as smooth as possible, from jumping to deploying the parachute to landing safely. This responsibility also includes ensuring a stable free fall position by controlling the parachute.

World Nomads offers Travel Insurance that covers Tandem Sky Diving. You will be able to select this activity, when you have chosen a policy that meets your requirements.

History of Tandem Sky Diving

The sport of Sky Diving has a wide variety of purposes. After 1919, when the first voluntary parachute jump was carried out successfully, this new activity was improved and perfected by Militaries from all around the world. Although it used to be mostly an activity that was associated with armies, Sky Diving competitions have been organised since as early as the 1930s. It became an official sport in 1952.

Tandem Sky Diving is without question the safest way to practice Sky Diving and a great way to learn the basics.

Common Injuries

While there have been fatalities during Sky Diving, these account for about 1 in 100,000 jump they are, in other words, extremely rare. The injuries sustained while Sky Diving are generally caused by either faulty procedures or a mistake in judgment.

A number of safety precautions are in place to make Sky Diving a sport that is as safe as possible. It is essential, literally life saving, that regular checks are done to make sure that all of the equipment still works properly and will not malfunction. Particularly the back up parachutes should be checked thoroughly and regularly by an experienced and certified Sky Diving instructor.
