*Flying After Diving Guidelines
For a single no-decompression dive, a minimum preflight surface interval of 12 hours is suggested. (Including pool and shallow water immersions)
For multiple dives per day or multiple days of diving, a minimum preflight surface interval of 18 hours is suggested. Dive Newcastle recommends 24 hours to err on the side of safety.
For dives requiring decompression stops, 24 hours minimum is recommended.
To err on the side of safety, many divers plan a 24-hour surface interval or longer and spend their time exploring topside attractions.
All divers and students need to follow the recommendation given by the manufacturer of the dive computer regarding No Fly Times and should always take the most conservative approach in regard's to flying after diving. Waiting longer before flying when possible after diving and exploring the top side during this period is always your best approach. This information is discussed further and in more detail during your dive course.
