Skydive Ground School

Ground School consists of a series of lessons, explaining how we actually fly our bodies in the sky, open safely and correctly manage the parachute equipment, and pilot the parachute back to the ground. You will receive parachute training from one or more experienced skydive instructors who will teach you all of the essential skills.

Dare To Do It

The Ground School program is designed to teach you, in baby steps the basics that you will need to prepare for the jump, exit the plane, remain aware of altitude, free fall in a stable position, do very basic maneuvers, deploy from a stable position at the right time, assess and react to an emergency, fly your canopy and land safely. We operate a 10 passenger Piper Navajo (13,000 feet AGL) and a 14 passenger King Air (13,000 feet AGL).
