Do I need a medical?
If you are under the age of 70 and have no medical conditions you will be able to sign yourself off as being fit to jump, otherwise you will need your GP to sign the BPA 115B medical form.
The principal medical restrictions for all jumps are diabetics, epilepsy, fits, recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease, mental illness and some cases of asthma. Please get in touch with the charity team for more information.
Do I need insurance?
All participants are covered by the British Parachute Association Liability Public Insurance Policy up to £2 million for liability to Third Parties. Please note this does not cover you or your dependants for personal injury or death. We strongly recommend you to take out your own insurance cover for personal accident benefits to whatever level you consider appropriate. If in doubt please seek independent advice.
The Christie charity and Black Knights Parachute Centre accept no responsibility for any injury incurred whilst undertaking the challenge. If you would like to purchase individual cover, Black Knights recommend insurance from Skycover. Please quote 'Black Knights Parachute Centre'
