Static Line Course
Static line training is focused on teaching you canopy flight skills first, and only then progressing to free fall training. The main advantage of this method is that you jump alone from the very first jump, and that the overall cost of training is lower then with some other methods. You will receive your ground school training, teaching you canopy control skills, dropzone landing pattern navigation, and emergency procedures in case of equipment malfunction. After that, you will perform your first jump form 1200 meters. Your parachute will be connected to the airplane with a piece of cord called a static line, which will automatically deploy the main parachute when you jump out. After your parachute opens, your instructor will guide you down using a radio station mounted on your chest strap. You will land, and in about 2 hours, when your brain has had time to process the whole experience, you will realize that you are a skydiver now!
After your first jump, your next few static line jumps will be so called “simulations”, you will practice your body position during separation from the aircraft, and pull a dummy deployment handle, while the actual parachute deployment will still be done by your static line. After you perform several successful simulations, you will be ready for the real deal: your first parachute deployment. You will jump from 1500 meters, wait 3 seconds, and deploy your own parachute.
Once you have mastered deploying your parachute yourself, it is time for the final part of your training – free fall. You will gradually increase your jump altitude up to the maximum of 3500 meters, and practice your free fall skills, starting with just being stable on your belly, and progressing to more advanced skills, such as turns, speed control, and even back-flips. Once you have mastered that, you will hopefully be at jump number 25 and you will be eligible to take the exam for your A license!

After completing the First jump course, student jump prices (up to A license) within the Static line course are in the table below.
Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Course
Unlike static line training, AFF training method focuses on developing students freefall skills from their first jump. The main advantage of this method is that students which got their A license through AFF typically have a higher skill level then those which reached A license through static line training, but AFF comes at a disadvantage of increased training cost compared to the static line. You will receive your ground school training, teaching you proper body position in freefall, how to deploy your main parachute, canopy control skills, dropzone landing pattern navigation, and emergency procedures in case of equipment malfunction. After that, you will perform your first jump from 3500 meters with two instructors holding on to you making sure that your body position in freefall is correct. You will perform several practice parachute deployments (reach behind and touch your deployment handle, without pulling it) and then deploy your parachute at 1500 meters. After opening your parachute, your instructor will guide you down using a radio mounted on your chest strap.
Over the next couple of jumps you will still have two instructors jumping with you, they will not be holding on to you the whole time, but they will still be right there to help you if you loose your stability. As you progress your freefly skills, you will start jumping with only one instructor, and, after your skills have advanced enough, you will be cleared to jump solo.
Once you are jumping solo and no longer require instructors holding on to you, you will learn more advanced free fall skills, including turns, speed control and even back flips, and when you mastered those, you will hopefully be at jump number 25 and you will be eligible to take the exam for your A license!
AFF course price
Jump prices for AFF course are in the table below. AFF course has it’s own ground school, so it is not required to complete the First jump course prior to beginning your AFF course.
|AFF 1 – AFF 3
(Jumps with two instructors)
|AFF 4 – AFF 7
(Jumps with one instructor)
After successful completion of AFF course, student jump prices (up to A license) are in the table below.
Hybrid jump course combines the best features of all the other skydiving training methods. This training method is designed to get people to the skill level where they are capable of performing complex aerial maneuvers (2 way formations) as soon as they get their A license. You will receive ground school training, just like the one in our static line course, and jump two static line jumps. They serve to teach you basic canopy control skills and mentally prepare you for the feeling of being in the air. Then you will go to a wind tunnel where you will fly for 30-60 minutes, completing exercises per our training program. Wind tunnel helps you master freefall skills in several minute long sessions, while your instructor stands next to you and corrects your mistakes (which is not possible in the air), without the stress of worrying about your altitude and when to deploy your parachute.
After you return from the tunnel, you will jump several jumps from 3500 meters with one instructor. These serve to learn how to apply your wind tunnel skills to real jump conditions, and to develop altitude awareness, which is not required in the tunnel. After you successfully complete several exercises with your instructor, you will be cleared to jump solo.
Once you are jumping solo, you will continue to develop your canopy control and advanced freefall skills (turns, speed control, docking, and back flips, all of which will come easy to you, as you practiced in the tunnel). Once you have reached your jump number 25 you will be eligible to take the exam for your A license!
Hybrid course price
Hybrid jump course requires completion of the First jump course (150€).
Price for one hour of wind tunnel time with instructor is 500€. Price does not include travel and accommodation costs.
Price of jumps with one instructor (AFF 4 – AFF 7) is 150€ per jump.

What do I need to wear for my first jump course?
A tracksuit or any other kind of clothing that does not restrict your movement, and a pair of trainers are the best choice for jump clothes. If the weather is cold, a light jacket may be required. We recommend that you don’t wear too loose fitting clothing as it may hinder you from properly using your cutaway and reserve handles (loose clothes covering your handles). Do note that hooded sweatshirts and jackets are not allowed as the hood will get in the way during freefall, nor are sandals or slippers, as they may pose a risk during freefall and landing. Long hair should be tied, and no jewelry, cell phones or cameras are to be carried on the jump.
Can I bring my friends or family with me?
Your are allowed to bring people with you, but please keep in mind that your ground school will take a better part of the day, and any people not directly involved in the training can not be present in the classroom (to avoid distractions), so the people you bring will have to wait a long time. As for your first jump, your friends or family can wait for you in the landing area.
Do I need a medical clearance to jump?
You need to have a valid driving license, valid medical certificate for a driving license, or a valid class 2 aviation medical certificate in order to jump. If you have any chronic medical conditions or regularly take prescription medication, please consult your medical care provider before doing your first jump course.
Is any preparation necessary before arriving at the airport?
You need to come well rested, and have breakfast before arriving at the airport. Your first jump course will be intensive and time consuming, it is in the interest of your safety to be maximally focused, and being tired and hungry will not help that. You need to bring a valid photo ID with you (passport or ID card), and a proof of medical clearance (driving license or valid class 2 aviation medical certificate).
Can I bring a cellphone / camera to record my first jump?
We do not allow our students to bring any electronic devices with them for the purpose of recording, handheld devices that are dropped from several hundred meters in the air can cause serious injury to people on the ground, and devices mounted on the body pose an entanglement hazard during deployment of the parachute. Your instructor will record your jump, and the recording will be analyzed afterwards as part of training, so you are welcome to take the video with you afterwards. You will be allowed to jump with a camera only when you get your skydiving license and your instructor clears you for flying a camera.
What if it rains?
Skydiving, like all aerial sports, is heavily dependent on the weather. Many conditions, such as wind speed, type and quantity of clouds, or any kind of precipitation can cause your flight to be delayed. If the weather forecast is less then ideal, we will let you know the day before weather your jump will be rescheduled, or you should come to the airport, but expect to have to wait for the weather to clear at some point. Keep in mind that weather requirements for students are more restrictive then those for experienced jumpers.
