How safe is skydiving?

Although skydiving is a high risk sport when compared to say, snooker or football – and like any fast adventure sport it is of course possible to twist an ankle, hurt yourself in some other way or yes – you could in theory even die, it’s not anywhere near as risky as many people would believe.

You can sustain exactly the same injuries in an accident walking across the street, driving to work, horse riding – in fact doing just about anything! Lots of other adventure sports are just as or even more dangerous than skydiving and modern parachute systems and teaching methods are extremely reliable.
