I did the 16,500 ft jump. It was brilliant. Great adrenaline rush. Lovely scenes in the plane above the glacier. You don't go above the glacier on the 13,000ft jump. Mauro was great to jump with. Good video and pics.

Hi, If your blood pressure is under control, there is no reason why should not be able to do the jump. Hope to see you soon. Regards Mark Skydive Fox Glacier

Response from Skydive-Fox G | Property representative |
Hi Lesley, Due to certification limits on the equipment, we have to have a maximum passenger weight of 120KG. We do require that anyone over 100KG be assessed by one of our senior staff to ensure that they can safely jump.
