Have you ever experienced the adrenalin rush of a joy flight, swooping low over a headland? Or the magnificent scenery when floating in a hoy air balloon at sunrise? Or skydiving from above the clouds and landing on a sandy beach? Have you ever wondered why the signs read 'fly at your own risk' and why you sign a waiver full of small print? Would it surprise you to know that when you engage in these activities, you are taking all of the risk? That you have no claim for compensation against the pilot if you are injured or killed? Well, if you are on a joyflight, a hot air balloon or a a skydive in Australia, there is no compensation because you are engaging in a dangerous recreational activity. So check up your permanent disability policy, your life insurance and your medical insurance, because they will be your safety net.
