Static Line Course
For the satisfaction of knowing that you did it - all by yourself - go for the Static Line course!
This course takes place over two days, training you in the skydiving techniques required to jump from an altitude of 3,500 feet, with an automatically opened parachute. If you think skydiving may be the sport for you, then this is a great first step: you can be freefalling and opening your parachute yourself by your sixth jump! You can become a fully qualified solo skydiver in as few as sixteen jumps using this training system.
The number of people on the static line course is kept low, ensuring that each participant gets personal tuition. During the course you will learn safety regulations and be instructed on the skydiving techniques required, including;
- exiting the aircraft
- stable and controlled body position
- how the equipment operates
- how to control the parachute to steer it down to a safe arrival in the landing area
The course involves both theoretical work and the physical practise necessary to make the most of your skydive. Your first jump will take place on the day after the ground training, weather permitting.
We provide all the required equipment, and our student parachute systems include several safety features and backup devices. The parachutes we provide are virtually the same as used by all experienced skydivers worldwide.
Static line ground training runs on Saturdays - book early; places are limited!
