Is skydiving safer than driving? The answer is surprising: statistically speaking, yes, skydiving is safer than driving. As you get behind the wheel for your daily commute, you may not even bat an eye, but did you know it's far more "dangerous" than jumping out of a "perfectly good airplane." It's true. Because of the routine created by our daily commute, the trips we take to the grocery store, or drives to and fro for coffees, lunch dates, and evening meetups, the risk of driving is buried in tedium. Nevermind, the majority of time spent on the road is time spent dangerously distracted. Now, if you mention skydiving, nine out of ten will see making the leap as considerably more threatening than an easy Sunday drive.
Tandem skydiving has now been a thing for a long time. Many decades of practice and technological advancement has refined and streamlined the process of jumping out of an aeroplane for the first time into a fine art. With just a small amount of information and practice on the ground, practically anyone can do it.
Jumping from an airplane has its obvious risks and you would think we would receive queries about parachute malfunctions and their likelihood of occuring or our safety record, but that's not the case. The most common question we receive is "Does your stomach drop when you skydive?"
If you're searching for "what to write on your hands when skydiving" then it's likely you've booked your jump, locked down a media package and are now thinking about the finer details like adding messaging to your hands.
