Once you have successfully completed the ground school training, our experienced instructors will walk you through each step of your solo skydive. You will get a chance to practice this on the ground before gearing up and getting ready to take flight to 4,000 feet! You will have an instructor in the aircraft (Jump Master) to finalize gear checks and assist the deployment of your parachute (Instructor Assisted Deployment) as you exit the plane! There is roughly 3 seconds of freefall before the parachute is above you. You will be assisted while steering your parachute through radio communications with our specialized ground control instructor (GCI). The GCI will assist your through your canopy flight and landing.
