A member of staff will need to discuss your previous dislocation with you.
Whilst there is always a risk to flying in high wind-speeds, the most common injury is a shoulder dislocation. This is because you are flying facing downwards with significant pressure on your arms and shoulders. For those with a previous dislocation it is more likely that you are more susceptible to dislocation and our experience shows us that it is about a one percent chance.
You should also be aware that if a previous dislocation was spontaneous as opposed to through something like a rugby or road traffic accident, you will be far more susceptible to further dislocations unless you have had corrective surgery.
If you have had two or more previous dislocations, you may not fly unless you have had surgical correction or have a signed doctor's certificate that you need to bring with you.
If you have had just one dislocation but in the last three years, you may not fly without a signed certificate from your doctor and at our discretion.
If you have had just one dislocation and it occurred more than three years ago we advise you to get advice (and a certificate) from your doctor but you may fly only after signing a further statement of risk and at our discretion.
If you have had corrective surgery for a dislocated shoulder and wish to fly, you must consult a doctor.
The only exemption to the above will be to experienced skydivers or tunnel flyers.
