Our Skydiving Academy offers several styles of training to help aid you on your journey to professional skydiver. However our two main styles of instruction include the Static Line Progression and Accelerated Free Fall. The Static Line Progression is the initial course that introduces new students to skydive fundamentals. There’s a static line attached to the aircraft that will release the main canopy. Prior to boarding the aircraft, there’s a four to five hour ground instruction session that prepares students for the aircraft session. It’s required that, before each jump, the instructor conducts 15 minute ground instructions. The first static jump will be 3,000ft., and after two successful static jumps, you will be instructed to deploy your own chute. After 25 successful dives, the student becomes eligible to apply for their A license and graduate from student status. Accelerated Free Fall is an advanced seven step skydiving course that introduces students to various degrees of skydiving. You learn about different aspects of solo skydives by certified skydiving instructors. In levels one through three of the United States Parachute Association mandated AFF instruction, students will learn about body position, stability, altitude awareness, and much more! In levels four through seven, students will be instructed on turns, forward movement, and in air skills. The first free fall jump is commenced at up to 12,000ft., and the student is accompanied by two AFF instructors. During this first few jumps, the instructor will be in physical contact. After completing our skydiving academy, you will immediately be eligible to receive certification from the Federal Aviation Administration.

Superman’s not the Only Flying Hero!

Did you know that skydivers can also be heroes? All over the world skydiving professionals, known as Smokejumpers, dive into remote areas to combat forest fires. Smokejumpers are a national treasure because they help alleviate many natural disasters. They are highly trained professionals with experience firefighting natural fires as well as certified skydivers. On the road to becoming a certified Smokejumper, candidates must dedicate years for intense training and simulated trials. With origins in the Northwest Pacific Region, the first Smokejumper program was developed in 1939. Since then, regions all over the country have adopted this method. Vital materials, water, food, and firefighter tools are delivered by parachute to remote areas with the help of Smokejumpers. Not only are skydivers capable of rescuing forests, but they can alleviate civil emergencies as well. Many are unaware of the National Guard pararescue branch. They are the Natural Guard’s secret weapon that dives in and saves the day. Pararescuers are trained to complete civil operation duties during catastrophic natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods.
