Q:

I went skydiving in August and I found that I could not breathe during the free fall. Is there some sort of mask I can wear during the jump so that I can breathe?

Celine M.  asked on  Dec 11, 2012

A:

In Freefall there is 200kph winds blowing in your face.. This should increase the ability to inhale, you can then exhale if your having trouble by leaning you face to the side and telling your instructor you can't breath. From the 50,000 videos we've done in the last 10 years, we have noticed a pattern.. People whom feel they cannot breath are usually flying face down instead of head up, or yelling the whole way down. The out of breath feeling you are most likely having is pure awesome heart throbbing adrenaline, and we succeeded at getting your juices flowing. I have not yet met a second time jumper who felt they could not breath in freefall... If your really worried about it you can wear a full face helmet, but honestly it takes away from the experience. Please come talk to any of our instructors before you jump if your still concerned.. We'd be happy to spend time with you one on one to assist in making the experience as amazing as possible.

Q:

When landing, does the student land on their feet with a lot of pressure? Is skydiving safe for people with lower back problems (ex. herniated disc)? Thanks!

Eva S.  asked on  Dec 9, 2012

A:

We can either land on our feet, or slide in on our butts. The landings are pretty light however like anything, if you already have a back injury it's best to talk to you doctor first. Landing a skydive is like jumping off two steps. If you can do that you can likely Skydive.

Q:

With this deal or with another package is it possible to do a jump first with an instructor, then do a second one without somebody strapped to you? If so how much would it cost? Are there courses you need? thank you.

Stacy P.  asked on  Dec 8, 2012

A:

If you are talking about the older Instructor Aided Deployment student progression program (IAD). Edmonton Skydive does not offer that anymore. First time jumpers must do a Tandem Skydive (which is strapped to the instructor). From there you have the option to do a Program called AFF (Accelerated FreeFall). This program you have two instructors hanging on to you through your entire freefall. This Groupon deal is for Tandems Only.. If your interested in becoming a Solo Licensed skydiver, we'd be happy to go over all the details with you via email, or phone.. 1 800 SKYDIVE, 780 884 5867, jump@edmontonskydive.com

Q:

can my 12 year old son do this?

laura k.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

A:

Im sorry our age limit for tandem is 14 years old. He can in two years ;)

Al C.  from  Merchant  replied on  Dec 6, 2012

Q:

The two tandem jump deal is for two people, correct?

Pauline W.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

A:

Yes it is for two individuals. You can jump out of the same plane together, however not attached to each other. You and your friend will be attached to two different professional Tandem Instructors leaving the aircraft at about 4KM above the ground :)
