Additional Solo Jump Information

A classroom-based session is usually held on the evening before your jump. You’ll be instructed on equipment, exiting the aircraft, body position, canopy control, safety procedures, and last but not least… how to land. After the course, there is a complete review of what you have learned. On jump day, we gear you up for your jump. Our course includes all the equipment needed for your jump. Coveralls, parachute rental, goggles, helmets, altimeter, and radio are all provided. Our expert staff will assist you in putting your gear on and go through a series of safety checks. A final review of the jump is done and you are on your way to the aircraft for your climb to altitude.

A first time student or solo jumper is taken to an altitude of 3,500 feet for their first jump. Your instructor will check your gear for the final time and you will exit the aircraft. You let go and fall away as your parachute opens above you. Your training as well as radio assistance from our ground crew guides you to a safe landing after a 3 to 5 minute parachute ride.

Our staff will then assist you in taking your gear off, talk about the highlights of your jump and if you so desire prepare you for your next jump.

All first jump students receive a logbook containing the details of their jump experience. Subsequent student jumps are $75. You will then progress through the GFF program.
