Is Skydiving Safe?

Updated: Oct 19, 2018

In 2016, USPA recorded 21 fatal skydiving accidents in the U.S. out of roughly 3.2 million jumps. That's one fatality per 153,557 jumps—one of the lowest rates in the sport's history! Tandem skydiving has an even better safety record, with one student fatality per 500,000 tandem jumps over the past decade.

Real Statistics. Tandem skydiving has the strongest safety statistics of any type of jump, with only 0.003 fatalities per thousand jumps over the past 10 years. You're more likely to be struck by lightning or win the lottery than to die on a tandem skydive. In fact, the most dangerous part of skydiving is driving to the dropzone.
