frequently asked questions
- Is my payment refundable?
- Do you offer FREE shuttle?
Due to COVID-19, all shuttle services are canceled until further notice!
- Can I bring my friends and family on the free shuttle?
Due to COVID-19 all shuttle services are canceled!
The FREE Courtesy shuttle is for non – local customers with tandem reservations only! If you want to bring your family or friend to watch you skydive, they will have to arrange their own transportation. If you are a local Las Vegas / NV resident you will need to arrange your own transportation for yourself and your friends.
- Can I bring my own Go Pro to record the jump?
We get this question A LOT. The answer is NO! Why? The answer is – Safety! Your safety and the safety of all people on the ground! All video equipment used by skydivers is highly specialized and tested to make sure that it does not interfere with the safety of the skydive and the people on the ground! Non skydive tested and certified equipment is a huge safety issue and it is simply – dangerous! Not properly secured video equipment WILL do huge damage to the people and property on the ground……… The list of why you CAN NOT bring your Go Pro or any other video and photo equipment non-skydive certified video equipment to film your own skydive is very, very, very long………..
- Can I get High, use Drugs & Alcohol and skydive?
Skydive Fyrosity® DOES NOT allow skydiving under the influence of alcohol or drugs legal or illegal! Alcohol, drugs and skydiving DO NOT mix! We know you are in Las Vegas to have a great time and party with your friends, however If you parted until 3am and you consumed any drugs or excessive amount of alcohol to the point where we can smell it on your breath, you will not be allowed to skydive. If you are suspected of intoxication you will be required to take an alcohol breathalyzer test. If ANY amount of alcohol is registered, you will not be able to skydive and you will forfeit your deposit of $100 dollars! Make sure you do not consume more than 1 or 2 drinks at least 8 hours prior to your skydiving appointment.
BAD IDEA #1: SKYDIVING HIGH
We’re all grown-ups here. Right? (Skydiving, after all, has an 18+ age limit in the good ol’ US of A, so we’re imagining that’s you, too.) Since that’s out of the way, here it is: Depending who you talk to, it could be send that we’re kinda-sorta in a golden age for marijuana availability. In Las Vegas, NV – marijuana is legalized for medicinal and recreational use. That being said: “recreational use” by no means refers to “use during any recreational pursuit you desire to undertake.” If you blaze up in the car and any staff member notices the act or its effects, you will definitely NOT be blazing up to altitude.
Why? Well: As a tandem student, you’re not going to be a passive passed-out passenger. You’ll be taking an active role on the skydive, which will require you to go through a training process, to learn new skills and to demonstrate them in the high-pressure environment of freefall. Most tandem skydiving students love this super-involved, all-hands-on-deck experience–it’s much more personal and much more satisfying than, say, strapping into a roller coaster–but it requires your 100% engagement. Weed or any drugs reduce your ability to do what we need you to do, which, of course, is what you need you to do in order to complete a safe, awesome skydive.
If you are suspected to be under the influence of drugs or marijuana, you will not be allowed to skydive! Yes, you will loose your $100 dollars deposit.
Some prescription drugs are allowed as long as they don’t affect your motor and mental abilities.
BAD IDEA #2: SKYDIVING DRUNK
Well, if there was a worse idea than skydiving high, it’s skydiving drunk. Not only does all of the above apply, but you’re putting yourself in danger of becoming a flying vomit bomb or passing out. If you’re drunk, you will not be allowed to board the shuttle, you will not be allowed anywhere near our top-notch team members and professional skydiving instructors and our gear, you will most likely be asked leave the premises. Yes, you will forfeit your deposit of $100 dollars.
- Does Skydive Fyrosity® offer the Highest jump in Nevada?
Yes! Skydive Fyrosity® is the only Drop Zone in Las Vegas offering the highest jump and longest freefall time than any other! Why? Skydive Fyrosity® is located at the lowest elevated airport in the state of Nevada at only 1,365ft above see level. All other’s are located at much higher above see level elevations.
Skydive Fyrosity® – Overton Airport – 1,365 ft MSL
Mesquite Airport – 1,978 ft. (+613 ft)
Boulder City Airport – 2,201 ft. (+836 ft)
Jean Airport – 2,832 ft. (+1467 ft)
What does this means? It means that you get to free fall 10 – 12 seconds longer that any other location in the state, since the ground is further away from the exit altitude. If anyone else is claiming they offer the highest jump and the longest free fall in Nevada – they are making a false claim!
- I have the Flu, head cold, nasal congestion and or sinus infection, can I skydive?
We at Skydive Fyrosity® DO NOT recommended that you skydive with Flu, head cold, nasal congestion, sinus infection or any other symptoms that restrict your body’s natural ability to equalize air pressure! It is a lot better, safer and a LOT cheaper to cancel your skydive and lose your deposit of $100 (if less than 48 hours or on the day of your skydive) than it would be to end up with permanent health damage and huge doctor’s bills. However, this choice is yours! Yes, we know it is your last day in Las Vegas and you can not reschedule, however skydiving is not the local fast food restaurant with a line of customers waiting to take your slot.
If you select to keep it a secret and not to disclose that you are sick and decide to make a skydive anyway, you will be exposing your personal health and the health of other helping you along the way to extreme dangers.
Here are the warnings!
The Flu congests the nasal and sinus passage! What that means? That means that your body’s natural ability to adjust and equalize for the air pressure differences when we get to altitude is not working. Skydiving is an activity that involves going to higher altitudes up to 15,000 feet.
YOU’RE PUTTING YOUR EARDRUMS AT RISK.
Most people, thank heaven, have never experienced the abject misery of a popped eardrum. When the pressure on the inside of the eardrum is so much greater than the pressure on the outside of the eardrum–as can happen when a stuffed-up nose enters the thinner air of a jump plane altitude–it can pop like a balloon. The sensation of a popping eardrum is difficult to describe with any accuracy, but most people who experience it will tell you that it’s like having a tiny little dude shoot you in the ear from the inside, then pour gasoline on the wound and light it on fire.
It’s important to insist here that this does not happen to a healthy ear. The little gunman only lives in people with severely stuffed noses, and he doesn’t shoot every time. It’s just oh-so-very important to know and to limit your risk!
IT’S THE WORST HEADACHE OF YOUR LIFE, JUST WAITING TO HAPPEN.
If you skydive with a head cold and manage not to explode your eardrum, you’ll face a much more likely ordeal: a headache that will make you squirm with agony.
Just like the eardrum issue, this also has to do with the pressure differential between the world outside your head and the world inside it. When you’re well, your body can manage the pressures just fine on its own. When you’re dealing with a head cold, it can’t–and you end up in an extremely painful situation as your body tries to sort it out. This is the kind of headache that aspirin doesn’t seem to do anything for; the kind you just have to wait out. Trust us when we tell you that the wait feels like years.
IT’S NOT COOL TO PUT THE OTHER CUSTOMERS, THE PILOT, THE INSTRUCTOR AND EVERYONE ELSE AT RISK.
During transportation, you will be sharing the same space as other customers in the shuttle. During your Check in, you will meet other staff members and people helping you along the way, on the ride to altitude you will be in close proximity with your pilot and your instructors, during freefall, as the thin air of altitude starts to thicken back to normal, your much-maligned nose is going to do the only thing it can think of to bring itself back to equilibrium: it’s going to run. It’s going to run like it’s never run before. It’s going to empty itself out, and there’s going to be no tissue available to hold back the flood. At this point, you asked for it–but your instructor sure DID NOT! He or she is going to end up wearing it. We know you’re not the kind of person who would knowingly do that kind of thing.
So–now you know the deal. Skydiving when you have a bad cold is no bueno. Luckily, we’ll be here when you’re feeling better!
Don’t take our word for it – here is what the doctor’s say – READ MORE!
