N.B. If you complete the dive section, it is recommended that you wait at least 12 hours before flying. This is because the residual nitrogen that is still dissolved in your blood after diving can come out of solution as bubbles if the pressure reduction is not slow enough to let your body off-gas safely – such as if you ascend to altitude too soon after your dive.
