Become a Professionally Certified Skydiver with Parachuting.com Chesapeake
Parachuting.com Chesapeake offers Skydiving Academy with two courses to choose from, the Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Static Line Progression (S/L) depending on your time allowance and learning style.
Professional Training! All of our trainers are certified skydivers through the USPA. This allows students the eligibility to become certified through the USPA as the training meets the training guidelines and timeframe.
Accelerated Free Fall
AFF training includes seven progressive steps for students to practice skydiving techniques. The steps are administered and facilitated by a trained instructor who will jump with the student.
First AFF Freefall
A student will perform their first AFF jump from between 10,000-12,000 feet in the air. They will be accompanied by two instructors who maintain contact through Harness Hold Training. Instructors will help prompt students to deploy their parachute around 5000 feet.
Steps in AFF
The United States Parachute Association (USPA) mandates seven steps during AFF training. Levels 1-3 include instruction in altitude awareness, body positions and stability, pull sequence and parachute deployment. Steps 4-7 include “in air skills” instruction. Level completions require a successful jump.
Integrated Student Program (ISP)
Following AFF training, the student will enter into ISP to continue practicing. Once they reach 25 mandated jumps they may apply for their license.
Static Line Progression
S/L training allows students to jump from the aircraft while suspended to the plane through a static line connection where the parachute deploys. Students will then experience a 2-3 minute fall.
S/L training includes 4-5 hour ground instruction and the first jump at 3000 feet in the air. The student is instructed on deploying the chute on their own and must practice with three more S/L jumps. Now students demonstrate freefalls through a “Clear and Pull” jump, a “10 second delay” jump. Students may apply for their license after 25 successful jumps.

Capture Your Skydiving Experience with a Videography Package
Parachuting.com Chesapeake allows you to bring your skydiving experience back home with you so you can relive your exhilarating moment! We have two imagery packages available for purchase. Either is a great choice to capture this very exciting memory.
This imagery package is the perfect option for those who want the “up close and personal” video. Your instructor will attach the camera to their helmet and film the entire dive from start to end. The camera will capture every scream and facial expression as you soar to your landing from 14,000 feet in the air.
The package brings a cameraman along on your skydive. The camera flyer will film your thoughts and actions from beginning to end including your moments entering the plane, to your thoughts before your jump and final feelings after landing. This option is prime, the camera man will jump before you in order to capture your dive, soar as you deploy your chute and land before you to document the landing. You get it all with the camera flyer.
A few hours after the jump you will receive an edited CD that captured the video as well as photos snapped during your dive.
The Action behind the Camera- Skydiving Camera Flyer
You see photos and videos of skydivers all the time, but have you ever thought about what goes into becoming a skydiving cameraman? Probably not, but that is why we are here! Camera flyers are part of an elite profession. Not many individuals have the courage to skydive, let alone film it!
A camera flyer is a double professional; they must be a certified skydiver and a professional cameraman! Those are two professions that not many individuals can accomplish. Camera flyers take skydiving to the extreme. They have to be able to maneuver their bodies in unique ways, all while battling the wind at top speeds, working their camera and their body suit!
To film a skydiving experience, a camera flyer must have a plan. They must come prepared to the drop zones with questions for the skydiver, regarding the preparation and their final thoughts after landing. They must know how to change directions, slowdown and speed up in order to capture the perfect shot. Speaking of, they must have top-notch camera skills in order to document the dive perfectly for the customer. Camera flyers must be aware of their surroundings, all while documenting an incredible experience. This takes serious thought and skill.
