I'm just throwing this out there, but if you flew for a living you probably wouldn't watch as many helicopter videos on youtube. Flying would just be normal...

I've only tandem jumped a few times but just wore a stupid padded hat to keep me from knocking the instructors teeth out. NONE of the tandem instructors had helmets. Some individual jumpers did, but I always assumed it was for wind/bugs.

Oh well?

I don't think a helmet will help in most situations where a divers head is hitting the ground. Statistically its a very safe sport.

Though most skydivers do wear helmets, neither the USPA or BPA require helmets to be worn (except for students).  However, both require 50 jumps to wear a full-face helmet and 200 jumps to wear a camera helmet.
