Static Line Jumpfrom $199.00

Static Line Information Static Line is considered the traditional method of training for someone interested in learning to skydive. This method is a less expensive way to make your first jump before you advance to freefall. You will have a half-day class and jump the same afternoon. The first jump is from 3500 feet. As you leave the aircraft the parachute is opened by the static line which is attached to the aircraft. There is no freefall involved in this type of jump. You steer the parachute to the landing area on the airport with radio back up. You may do as many static line jumps as you want before your Transition to Freefall jumps, or you may transition to AFF after your first static line. Maximum weight is 225 lbs. with height and weight proportional.

Accelerated Freefall Skydivefrom $339.00

Since 1981, AFF has been the most popular training program for someone who wants to become a licensed skydiver as quickly as possible. The entire program has 25 jumps. Our ACCELERATED FREEFALL (AFF) program allows you to experience the sensation of solo freefall on your very first jump. The first level includes the complete ground school. Training takes approximately six hours which includes aircraft procedures, the opening sequence of a parachute, emergency situations, landing techniques, and practical exercises in body positions for exits and freefall. This training leads to a jump in which you freefall for 1 minute, where two instructors will guide you through the exit, freefall, deployment. Each additional jump requires about 30 minutes of training. The first three jumps are with two USPA certified AFF Instructors and 22 of the remaining jumps are supervised by one Instructor or Coach. On each jump they assist you from aircraft exit to parachute opening. You open your own parachute, then steer your parachute to a soft landing in our wide open, hazard free landing area. You will have radio backup during your parachute descent. Exit altitudes are from 10,000 to 12,000 feet, depending on the aircraft. Each jump includes a thorough debrief, including video, to learn from each experience. Completion of this course provides each new skydiver the skills and knowledge for basic and safe recreational skydiving. Maximum weight is 225 lbs. with height and weight proportional.
