Before Beginning the A License Program

Before you enroll in your first jump course, please understand these essential facts. Skydiving demands considerable dedication, not just from students but also from the instructors supporting them. Tandem jumps afford flexibility, available virtually any day or time throughout the week.

This dynamic shifts once you embark on the accelerated freefall (AFF) program. Commencing AFF requires freeing up at least the initial few weekends. The initial student jumps necessitate the presence of two instructors and are exclusively scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays. Following these initial two-instructor jumps, scheduling solo-instructor AFF jumps on weekdays might be feasible. Ensure you can dedicate full days to the dropzone during several weekends after completing your first jump course, accounting for potential weather-related delays.

Beyond the time investment, mastering skydiving involves a substantial financial commitment. Confirm your ability to commit to completing the program once initiated. Many students accomplish their license over one to two months. Prepare to acquire both your AFF block and Coach block within a brief timeframe. Note that the United States Parachute Association mandates students to jump at least every 30 days to maintain currency. We encourage more frequent jumping, with our students typically completing 1-3 jumps per day every weekend.
