Jumping out of a plane from 14,000ft is not everyone’s cup of tea, but for Maya Moses, it was ‘brilliant’.

At 13, Maya last Thursday became Byron Bay’s youngest ever skydiver jumping in tandem with dad and professional tandem master, Alby.

The normal age limit for skydiving is 14, but with Alby planning to retire before Maya hits 14, the Australian Parachute Federation gave them special permission to do the tandem jump.

Alby started with Skydive Byron Bay 10 years ago and after completing more than 5500 skydives, he’s changing direction and moving into the coffee farming industry.

He said he wanted to share the enjoyment of his sport with his daughter before hanging up his parachute.
