Scuba-Tech Divers's curator insight, January 23, 2014 3:27 AM

We always advise divers and students to leave a minimum of 4 hours between Diving and flying and, at the end of the season, we aim for 3-4 days in between, and of course, we have DAN's hotline for any emergencies or queries we may have.

 

Better safe than sorry
