Return to Skydiving
The Covid-19 situation is rapidly evolving and where restrictions allow, Parachute Training Organisations (PTOs) are able to resume operations with safety measures in place to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19.
British Skydiving has worked hard with our Affiliated PTOs to produce guidelines to try to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission during skydiving activity. Unfortunately, there is no way to remove this risk completely – people with the virus may still get onto skydiving aircraft whatever countermeasures are put in place.
Every skydiver should make an informed decision regarding when they wish to return to skydiving. This decision needs to be made weighing up their own perception of their risk. Factors they should consider when making this decision could include (but are not limited to) their age, gender, health, employment, and home situation.
We have published the guidance here along with a selection of information posters, we ask our community to stay alert, be vigilant and stay safe.
The latest guidance from the Government is available here:
