Ah, the $100 question.  Skydiving is like any other extreme sport; there are inherent risks that require careful training, respect and execution. Failure to follow trained procedures can lead to serious injury or even death, which is the same as driving. Skydiving is as safe as the individual makes it, the equipment is so evolved and reliable that when used properly skydiving can be as safe as or safer than any other extreme sport. Follow procedures, don’t bend any rules and you will remain safe. At Robertson Skydive School all skydiving activities are regulated and monitored by PASA (Parachute Association of South Africa) and all our duty instructors and jumpmasters are PASA certified.
