Learn to Skydive

There are a couple of ways to become a qualified skydiver; “Accelerated Freefall” or “Static Line”. Experienced qualified skydivers typically jump from the aircraft high enough to experience “Freefall” before opening their parachute by pulling a handle on their parachute equipment.

What is Static Line?

When carrying out a static line jump, your parachute is deployed (opened) automatically by a cord attached to the aircraft meaning you only experience a very short freefall and your parachute is deployed soon after leaving the aircraft. In the duration of this course you will complete at least 17 parachute jumps before achieving your qualification in skydiving.

The program starts with approximately 6 hours training on the ground. You will then be ready to take to the sky.

  • Jump 1 & 2 - Your first solo parachute jump will be from approximately 3,500ft. During this jump you will experience a 5 second freefall sensation while the static line deploys your parachute. Once open you will fly a parachute for the first time back to the parachute landing area (PLA).
  • Jump 3 & 4 - In these jumps you will demonstrate deploying your parachute with a dummy handle to your instructor while the static line carries out the actual deployment.
  • Jump 6 & 7 - Your First Freefall with no static line. This time there is no dummy handle, this is for real! You will deploy the parachute yourself.
  • Jump 8 & 9 - Wait 10 seconds after exiting the aircraft before deploying your parachute.
  • Jump 10 & 11 - Wait 15 seconds after exiting the aircraft before deploying your parachute.
  • Jumps 12 to 17 - Exiting from upto 15,000ft practicing freefall manoeuvres such as regain stability after unstable exit, turns and tracking.
