You will get the chance of meeting other skydiving enthusiasts as your class will be a mixture of persons from all over the country.

The class sessions are divided with on the ground training as well as air training. During the first stages of this course, you will get the necessary concept of ascending in a safe manner. You will be taught the basic skills and tools needed to maneuver yourself since you will be experiencing your first solo jump. You will go through the processes of handling the attached equipment and tools for effective functioning. This will be done with the aid of a personal coach who upon realizing that you can manage your equipment practically and on your own, will arrange a guided solo flight. They will guide the whole process from safety in take-off to how you handle the initial landing. After a couple of extensive training periods, you will have the ability to not only do a simple jump but you will master the art of performing extra skills. These include amazing gliding and backflips – just how much cooler can skydiving get?
Through the program you will learn:
There are seven (7) levels of training involved in the AFF program and at the 6th level, you will finally go solo! Once your instructor has verified that you have the necessary skill set to achieve this, they will arrange for your solo jump assessment. You will still have your coach in case you need assistance but they will be assessing your jump to see if you have passed the necessary guidelines. Your overall performance (including a total of 25 jumps and other activities provided by the trainer) will help to determine if you are eligible to receive your USPA 'A' License.
This is the United States Parachute Association which issues skydiving licenses and certification to trained skydivers. They help to organize and set the processes by which persons are assessed and as such, they determine who is readily fit to be a part of the skydiving industry. They offer up to a license grading of 'A-D'. 'A' is granted after 25 jumps and 'D' is offered after 500 jumps which shows the ever increasing levels of skydiving.
