Learn to Skydive

Learn to Skydive solo and get certified through our Accelerated Freefall program.

Learn to Skydive with our Accelerated Freefall Progression Program

Time to kick off your tandem training wheels? Our Accelerated Freefall Progression Program is designed to put you on the fast-track to being able to skydive solo. The program consists of ground training, tandem jumps, training jumps with our experienced professionals, and supervised solo jumps.

The 16-jump program starts with two tandem skydives to help you get your bearings in the new environment. From there, it emphasizes strong freefall and canopy skills, a procedural approach to the high-stakes environment of a skydive and one-on-one tutelage by our team of experienced skydiving instructors. We do our best to make sure that all jumps are video recorded for thorough, immediate feedback.
