Details:  Ground instruction will concentrate on equipment, the proper airplane exit, free-fall procedures and canopy control methods, landing, malfunctions, and safety. After the several hour training course you will be pulling your own ripcord.

As a prerequisite for this course, students must be: 18 years old, in excellent physical condition and weigh not more than 240 pounds.  Wear Sneakers and comfortable clothing for the weather of the day. Avoid polo or oxford type collared shirts.

The Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) Level One skydive requires several hours of training (the First Jump Course) prior to exiting the plane with two qualified instructors. When exiting the airplane, the two instructors will be holding the student between them to ensure stability and allow the student an opportunity to successfully complete the free-fall portion of the skydive. At the appropriate altitude, the student will be responsible for opening their own parachute system. The student will then pilot their canopy and land their canopy with radio assistance from instructors on the ground.

All student systems contain a Cypres Automatic Activation Device (AAD) that will automatically deploy the parachute at a specific speed and altitude in the event that it has not already been opened by the student. All parachute systems contain a reserve "back-up" parachute that is regularly maintained and packed by an FAA Certified Master Parachute Rigger.
