Is Skydiving a Bucket List Item?

Most definitely. In fact, skydiving is usually right there at the top! Jumping out of an airplane is the perfect bucket list item because it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many people who choose to take the leap. And the extreme nature of the sport makes it all the more epic.

Creating Your Timeless Skydiving Memory

There are endless ways to make your skydiving experience unique and memorable. Documenting your jump on video, skydiving with friends, celebrating a special event, or skydiving for charity are just some of the things you can do to make skydiving the ultimate check mark on your bucket list.

When it comes to the bucket list skydiving scene, Skydive Cross Keys has you covered! Read on to find out all the different ways you can crush the ultimate goal: human flight!

Just Jump!

You don’t have to get crazy with your skydive to make it something special. Just the act of making a tandem skydive is more than enough to qualify as an extraordinary bucket list item. The experience alone is life changing and will stick with you forever.

Leaving an airplane door mid-flight will change your perspective on life and give you renewed confidence. You’ll always be able to look back on the experience and think, “I did that!

But there are some considerations to take into account when it comes to jumping out of an airplane. The weather is always something skydivers have to contend with (hitting rain at 120 mph isn’t the best feeling in the world!), and certain medical conditions may make it unsafe to go skydiving.

Some questions people often ask about skydiving with a medical condition include:

  • What medical conditions stop you from skydiving?
  • Can you skydive with asthma?
  • Can you skydive with a cold?
  • Can you do a skydive if you have a heart condition?
  • Can you skydive with heart failure?
  • Can you skydive with diabetes?
  • Can you skydive with a seizure disorder?
  • Can you skydive pregnant?
  • What conditions can you not skydive with?

All of these are important questions … and because we’re skydivers and not doctors, we advise you to ask your medical professional these questions before you make your booking. Your safety is our top priority.

Video Your Bucket List Skydive

If there’s no video, did it even happen? Well, of course it did! But having the ability to look back and relive the moment certainly doesn’t hurt. Skydiving for the first time is a complete sensory overload. It’s like nothing your brain or body has ever experienced before, and that means processing everything might leave you a little overwhelmed.

While that’s part of the fun, it’s also nice to be able to revisit your skydive once you’ve come down (literally and figuratively). Investing in video of the jump is the best way to preserve the memory of your skydive forever. Plus it’s social media gold! Don’t forget to tag us – we’re @skydive_cross_keys on Insta and @skydivecrosskeys on Facebook!

Checking an item off your bucket list is a huge deal. That’s the whole point of a bucket list! It’s not every day you get to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and it’s even more rare to be able to document the event.

Having pictures and videos of your jump allows you to experience your favorite moments over and over again and share them with the people who matter most!

Jump With Friends

Friends make everything better, and that includes bucket lists! The only thing more fun than going skydiving is going skydiving with friends. Getting everyone together for a good old jump out of a perfectly good airplane is an amazing way to bond and make forever-memories.

And having friends there with you can help with some of the nerves. Being surrounded by your favorite people who you trust more than anything will take away some of the anxiety of doing something new. You can lean on each other for support and come out of the whole thing closer than ever.

Skydive Cross Keys will even help you plan your own special event. Whether you want to have a birthday party, a corporate gathering, summer camp fun, or even a marriage proposal, we can make it happen!

And bringing your friends will help you save money. Groups of five or more people get $10 off per jump!

Skydiving for a Cause

Bucket list items are very personal and meaningful experiences. And skydiving is no different. Sure, jumping out of an airplane is fun and exciting, but you can take it one step further and make a charity skydive. From pet rescues to cancer research, skydive fundraisers certainly attract attention. Making a charity parachute jump is an amazing way to give back and have fun at the same time.

Get Your License

Sometimes a bucket list item becomes more than just a one-and-done check off the list! Skydiving has a way of being addicting – take it from us, we know! So if you landed from your jump and just have to do it again, don’t fret! We have a top-of-the-line student program that will take you all the way from your tandem to your skydiving license.
