Student Training Program
After you make your first jump, you may decide you
want to continue skydiving and earn your license. Our program has three
Phase One: Tandem
Phase Two: Instructor Assisted Freefall
Phase Three: Coached Dives
Each phases is broken down into several jumps.
Each jump has several objectives you meet before moving to the next dive.
After completing all three phases, you have the skills and jumps that will
automatically qualify you for your A license, your first basic skydiving
Our innovative training program is unmatched in quality! We use personalized one-on-one instruction throughout your training! You don't sit through just ONE long class with a large group of students where you get lost in the crowd! You will have ONE-ON-ONE instruction for every training session until you earn your license! And we break up the training into smaller sessions, so you don't have "brain overload!" In addition to regular, personalized instruction, you get support materials to help you learn... online training, handouts, objective written tests, and FREE video of your Phase Two jumps! This comprehensive training method is based on USPA SIM Programs and exceeds the standards outlined there. This program also complies with USPA's Integrated Student Program.
