Equipment & Safety

Everest Skydive requires specialized parachute equipment, all of which has been tested and approved for this amazing high altitude adventure. All your equipment will be supplied and be ready for you at the Drop Zone location. The opening altitudes for your main parachute will be between 16,000ft and 18,000ft AMSL; the main landing area (DZ) is at 12,402ft AMSL. These altitudes demand large main parachutes of 300 – 400 sq ft and a reserve of similar size.

Each parachute system carries an AAD (Automatic opening device) for greater safety in parachuting. You will be issued with an Altimeter and thermal gloves. Your AGL will be corrected at 12,402ft and you will have a true reading on your altimeter as we climb to record highs. We will also provide you with a special skydiving oxygen system, which is well proven at high altitude, unobtrusive and most importantly, non-restrictive to body movement or vision. You will also be given a skydiving helmet and HALO goggles for your eyes. You will be fully familiarized with all the equipment, fitted and briefed by our crew members prior to jumping. Tandem passengers will be fully prepared by their tandem master prior to making their tandem descent.
