  7. Alcohol and/or drugs must not be consumed on the day of the jump, prior to the training and jump.
  8. All participants and spectators must abide by Skydive GB rules and behave appropriately whilst attending the airfield. Abusive behaviour towards staff or other visitors will not be tolerated. Children must be supervised by an appropriate adult at all times.

  10. Cancellation/Refunds. In the event you wish to cancel your skydive, refunds are available as follows:

Within 12 months of your original booked date: Fees paid to Skydive GB can be refunded (with the exception of gift vouchers) less the booking deposit and any extension/rescheduling fees. Flight only tickets paid to Skydiving Aircraft Ltd can be refunded less an administration fee of £10.

Under these circumstances, with the exception of being overweight (including significantly out of proportion in terms of body mass index) or intoxicated, all fees paid to Skydive GB and Skydiving Aircraft Ltd will be refunded.
  3. The jump order on any day is generally governed by check-in order. Skydive GB however reserves the right to change the jump order for logistical or other reasons at any time.
