Solo First Jump Course

Student Program for Solo Jumpers, not tandem students:

Our student program follows United States Parachute Association (USPA) recommendations and includes a series of Instructor Assisted Deployment (IAD) jumps. During the IAD jumps, the student jumps solo from an aircraft and has their parachute deployed by an instructor in the plane as they exit, working their way up to deploying their own parachute, after which they will jump from full altitude accompanied by an instructor. The cost for the first jump, including ground training is $215*. Subsequent IAD jumps cost $85* and increase slightly as the altitude rises. There are 25 total jumps required to reach the first license (the A-license) as a new skydiver.

All of our first jump courses start on Friday night at between 5:00pm and 6:30pm. You can expect up to 4 hours of training on Friday and 4 more hours on Saturday morning before making your first solo skydive.
