Paraplegic man's skydiving moment almost 20 years in the making


Skydive Australia loves fulfilling the dreams of everyone and Ben Daley was no different.

Ben joined our crew in Cairns earlier this week to finally live his childhood dream of skydiving.

After being left paralysed from the waist down and unable to speak after an accident when he was 18, he thought he would never be able to go skydiving, however almost 20 years later his dream finally came true when he booked his tandem skydive with our Cairns crew.

Ben said he was thrilled to have ticked the adventure off his bucket list. 

"It goes to show that anything is possible when we put our mind to it and when we put our heart to it we can overcome so much." 

"I think it will be great if others are inspired to follow their dreams," he said.

With state of the art equipment, dedicated, professional and experienced crew, Skydive Australia is proud to be able to offer disability skydiving options at a number of our drop zones Australia-wide! 

Skydiving really is for anyone and here at Skydive Australia we love making dreams come true!!

Blue Skies,
