17,000' Tandem Skydivefrom $350.00

The highest tandem skydive in Kentucky!

Static Line First Jump Coursefrom $150.00

This method has evolved over the last 30 years from its military origins into a successful method for training sport parachutists. The student gets 4 - 5 hours of ground training and is then taken to an altitude of about 3200 feet for the jump. The jump itself consists of a simple hanging or poised exit from the airplane. As the student falls away from the plane, the deployment of the main canopy is initiated a "Static line" attached to the aircraft. The student will experience only a very short free fall before the opening of the main parachute is initiated. Subsequent jumps require about 15 minutes of preparation. After 2 good static line jumps, the student will be trained to pull their ripcord for themselves. The student then does 3 more good static line jumps where they demonstrate this ability by pulling a dummy ripcord as they leave the plane (the static line is still initiating the deployment of the main parachute). The student is then cleared to do their first freefall without a static line attached. The first freefall is a "clear & pull", where the student initiates the pull sequence immediately upon leaving the aircraft. Next is a 10 second delay jump. Subsequent jumps go to progressively higher altitudes with longer delays. After 20 free fall, and meeting certain other basic requirements concluding with a 'check dive' the student receives their A license and is cleared off student status.

Accelerated Freefall Skydivefrom $350.00

AFF/Tandem program was instituted in 1982 as an "accelerated" learning process as compared to the traditional static line progression. If you want to be on the fast track to becoming a skydiver this is what you’re looking for. After participating in a first jump ground school lasting 4 to 6 hours you may be asked to do a static line jump familiarize yourself with skydiving before your first Accelerated Freefall (AFF) jump. On your first AFF jump you exit from the airplane with two USPA AFF Instructors. They freefall together for up to 50 seconds depending on the jump altitude, usually about 11,500 feet. On your first jumps the instructor maintain a grip on your harness and give you in-air instruction via hand signals and assist with stability when necessary. You will open the parachute around 4,500 feet and another instructor on the ground will assist you in piloting the parachute via verbal guidance via a radio mounted in your helmet. Plan on spending the entire day at the parachute center for your training and jump.
