Frequent questions about skydiving in Airlie Beach

Here to give you peace of mind

We are here to help you, before, during, and after your skydive in Airlie Beach. Contact us with any other questions you may have.

How old do you have to be to skydive in Australia?

The legal minimum age to skydive in Australia is 16 years old. All minors need their parent or guardian’s written permission to skydive. While there is not a maximum age limit to skydive we reserve the right to refuse a passenger, based on weight and health to ensure the safety of our visitors and our staff. Please contact us to discuss your particular situations and avoid disappointment on the day.

Weight limit to skydive in Australia

The maximum weight to skydive in Australia is 110 kg. At Airlie Beach Skydivers we weigh all customers at check-in. Charges apply for over 95kg: $25 over 95kg, $50 over 100kg and $100 for the max. weight of 110kg. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Skydiving safety

There are risks involved in skydiving, but thanks to the advancements in technology and training, it has become much safer over the last few decades. Safety features like Automatic Activation Devices (AADs), will automatically trigger the deployment of the reserve parachute in the unlikely event that the instructor is not able to operate the gear. At Airlie Beach Skydivers we review all our aircraft and gear periodically. All our skydiving instructors are highly experienced with thousands of skydives each and qualified under the Australian Parachute Federation.

Skydiving video and photos

At Airlie Beach Skydivers we have several photo and video packages that you can purchase as optional extras. You can include it at the time of booking or purchase when you check-in on the day of your skydive. Visit our skydiving prices to know more.

Do you offer beach landings with your skydive?

All our skydives include a beach landing on Midge Point at no extra cost.

How long will take to go skydiving?

It is safe to allow for half a day activity as there may be weather or unforeseen circumstances out of our control.

Your booking time is for your check-in. When you arrive at Airlie Beach Skydivers you will fill in some paperwork. The safety briefing and gear up with your instructor will take 10 min, followed by a 20 min flight to 14,000 feet.

Can I wear jeans skydiving?

  • Think of the weather on the day and wear comfortable casual clothes.
  • At 14,000 feet it will be colder than on the ground. We can provide a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes, but it is normally not required.
  • We will provide skydiving goggles. If you wear glasses it is not a problem as we have special oversized goggles for that purpose.
  • Don’t wear flip flops or sandals, enclosed footwear that will not go loose is a must.
