Solo Parachuting Academy in Birmingham, AL

Learn from the best


The Skydiving Academy at Parachuting.com Birmingham is for those who want to become certified to skydive solo, and maybe move on to a career as a professional skydiver. You will be facilitated by FAA-certified skydivers and hence be eligible to receive certification yourself from the FAA. Choose from the following two training modes.

1. Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)

Think of Accelerated Free Fall training as the fast-track method of getting certification, as compared to Static Line Progression training. Students will be guided and facilitated by one or more certified skydiving instructors jumping alongside them.

First free fall in AFF

Your first Free Fall will be executed after around seven hours of ground instruction. It will:

· Be from 10,000-12,000 feet Above Ground Level (AGL)
· Be facilitated by two AFF instructors jumping alongside you and maintaining physical contact by practicing Harness Hold Training
If you don’t manage to deploy your parachute, your instructor will do it for you.

You may experience 50 seconds or more of Free Fall. Make the most of it!

The Seven Steps

The United States Parachute Association (USPA) outlines the following steps:

Levels 1-3:

● Assistance and instruction by two certified Instructors jumping alongside you
● In Level 3, you will Free Fall on your own

Levels 4-7:
● Instruction for ‘In air skills’
● Performing advanced aircraft exits

Each level will require a jump to demonstrate for full understanding and to move on to the next one.

Integrated Student Program (ISP)

After Level 7, practicing various maneuvers and making 25 jumps, you can apply for your solo A license.

2. Static Line Progression (S/L)

Jumping from 3,000 feet AGL, you have a balanced or suspended exit from the plane. Your parachute is deployed for you by a ‘Static Line’ affixed to the aircraft. You get 2 to 3-minute fall.

Process for S/L progression instruction:
● 4 to 5-hour ground instruction
● Following execution of two effective S/L jumps, you will be instructed about chute deploying
● After successful execution, you will move on to Free Fall jumps
● After 25 jumps, you can apply for your solo A license

Skydiving starts where fear ends!

You might think of skydiving as just a hobby. But for professional skydivers, skydiving can spell the difference between life and death! From finding their way in thick smog and wildfires to rescuing people from the battlefield, these people are risking their lives to save others, all the while performing dangerous feats.

Paratroopers are one such type of skydiver. These are military personnel who have received training in parachuting and work as part of an airborne force. They enter the battlefield from the air, thus lending the combat some major advantages.

And when it comes to lifting the injured from the ground, pararescuers jump into action, doing that and delivering aid to them.

As wildland firefighters too, skydivers can show their bravery. These people are also known as smoke jumpers and they make use of skydiving to reach inaccessible areas to extinguish or control wildfires.

We shouldn’t forget skydiving instructors whose job is to train more people in skydiving! And it gets even more awesome if you are a professional and competitive skydiver. You would get to take part in the World Parachuting Championships. Is there anything cooler than that? Definitely not!

Parachuting.com Birmingham Videos and Imagery

The incredible flying experience is waiting for you


Ever thought about how recording everything you do during your skydiving experience can boost the overall adventure? Indeed, video packages can turn things around and can make your skydiving experience absolutely incredible.

A video package enables you to record your experience forever – especially if you are jumping for the first time. You can view the video and relive the experience whenever you want, and refresh your memory over and over again.

Parachuting.com Birmingham does not only offer you an experience of a lifetime with skydiving but also gives you an opportunity to pick from one of our two amazing imagery packages. One of the packages is our videography service where a professional flyer will jump with you with their camera and record everything you do.

Be ready to get all your emotions recorded!

It was never this easy to capture your sky-high experiences


Does the thought of getting onto a plane and jumping from thousands of feet excite you? Do you experience a sudden adrenaline rush just thinking about the lifetime experience you can gain from skydiving? Does it excite you to know that you can capture all of those life-changing moments and share them with the world? Undoubtedly, skydiving really is an incomparable adventure!

As a camera flyer, you will be experiencing multiple things at a time – making the most out of your skydiving experience and recording the most beautiful moments of your life.

The views you only saw through the windows of an aircraft can now be witnessed up-close in a real environment. You can enjoy and capture this adventure at the same time. But to get to that sky-high experience, you must possess a C-license and a record of 200 jumps. This law has been set up by the US Parachute Association.

Out of those 200 jumps, 50 should be along with the equipment that you are to carry with you as a camera flyer. Some people do not only capture videos but are also into wingsuiting it. It is important that anyone who’s opting for this is aware that doing so high above in the air can be a challenging task.

Therefore, it is essential that you are personally trained for doing so before getting on with the plan. If you want to enjoy skydiving together with capturing the moment, you can get your hands on a regular camcorder with an ultra-wide-angle lens to capture as much as a possible. Some companies including JVC and Sony have some great video camera models you can start with.
