Today's Date: May 26, 2024  

WARNING:

SKYDIVING, PARACHUTING AND ALL RELATED ACTIVITIES ARE DANGEROUS AND MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

It is imperative that you are aware of the dangers and risks involved with the sport of skydiving as well as your responsibilities as a participant in it. Please read the following statements on all pages carefully and indicate that you understand the terms and conditions of this RELEASE AND WAIVER OF RIGHTS by signing, initialing and/or checking the boxes of the form where requested. 

 

SKYDIVING RISKS 

Data obtained from USPA fatality reports indicates that one out of every twenty thousand jumps results in death.

Serious injuries and death have been caused while participating in this sport. Serious injury and/or death can occur under many circumstances, including but not limited to: equipment failure, failure to execute proper emergency procedures, and the conduct of other jumpers. Jumpers have also died due to plane crashes. Serious injury and/or death may occur regardless of whether you are on your 1st or 5000th jump, etc.

Accidents resulting in death or serious injury can occur even if all precautions and correct actions are taken by the jumper, other jumpers and/or any others involved in the jump (i.e. pilot, instructor, jump master, etc.). Accidents resulting in death or serious injury may also occur because of someone’s negligence (i.e. acting or failing to act reasonably under the circumstances).

 

PARTICIPANT’S RESPONSIBILITIES:  

Because of the inherent danger in of the sport of skydiving, the jumper is obligated to do the following: 

  • Understand the proper procedures which may help to minimize the risks of death or serious injury and to seek assistance, guidance and/or further instruction if he or she is unsure of any such procedures;
  • Attempt to comply with any and all Federal Aviation Administration rules or regulations regarding their currency and equipment, including inspecting gear or having a licensed rigger do so prior to each jump;
  • Be prepared, careful, and cautious;
  • Follow emergency procedures precisely and at appropriate altitudes;
  • Not become overly confident so as to increase the risk of harm to the jumper or others;
  • Report any conduct which may increase the risk of harm to the jumper or others.

 

CERTIFICATION OF HEALTH:  

I recognize that the sport of skydiving is a strenuous athletic activity requiring me to be in good physical and mental condition.

I hereby certify that I do not suffer from any physical or mental infirmities or illnesses which would affect my ability to engage in parachute training or jumping and that I have a duty not to jump if I am not in good physical or mental condition.

I further certify that I will not jump if I have ingested any drugs, whether legal or not, within the previous 24 hours. I also certify that I will not jump if I have ingested alcohol within the previous 8 hours, and will not jump even after eight hours if I am still under the effects of alcohol. If I suspect any other jumpers are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, I will report my suspicions and take reasonable action to protect myself from any harm those individuals may cause, including refusing to jump if necessary. 

 

I certify that I have carefully read and fully understand this portion of the RELEASE AND WAIVER OF RIGHTS, which includes the provisions entitled SKYDIVING RISKS, PARTICPANT’S RESPONSIBILITIES and CERTIFICATION OF HEALTH. 

I Agree
 

I understand that I may sustain serious injury, illness or die during the act of, or in association with the act of skydiving and that this may result from numerous factors, whether the result of anyone’s negligence or not.

I understand that there is no insurance of any kind of which is available to the released parties that would cover any losses suffered in connection with my parachuting activities. 

I Agree
 

RELEASE OF LIABILITY

I also understand and agree that this provision extends to anyone who might otherwise be entitled to assert such a lawsuit or legal claim on my behalf such as an heir or other family member, personal representative or significant other. I have and/or will advise such individuals that I do not wish them to take such action and, in fact, that I have signed a contract which bars it and would subject them to costs and fees as discussed below.
