No, we do not recommend this. In theory, however, it is possible, especially in early pregnancy.

Your baby is well protected by the amniotic fluid, but you do not want to run any risks of falling on your belly. Adventurous sports such as skydiving and bungee jumping are therefore not recommended.

And although it may be possible in early pregnancy, most parachute centres do not want to take any risks.

You can, however, take flying lessons in a Cessna. As a rule, flying lessons are possible in the first two trimesters of an uncomplicated pregnancy. If in doubt, always consult your midwife or GP.

Precisely because you can't jump during your pregnancy, a tandem skydive is a fantastic maternity gift. You can of course order your gift voucher in advance and make an appointment. Pre-fun is the most fun!

Do you want to know more about flying?

Then download our theory book "How an aeroplane flies" completely free of charge. This booklet describes in an accessible way the background of a first flying lesson. So that before or after your lesson you can read back what happened around you. You will read about, among other things:

  • How lift is created and thus how an aeroplane can fly
  • How to make a turn with an aeroplane
  • What the traffic rules on the ground and in the air are
  • And what all the buttons and gauges in the cockpit mean

You can also order the book as a real book on or give it as a present with a flying lesson.
