learn to jump
everyone has to start somewhere
Whats your path?
There are 3 ways you can start your journey into the world of skydiving. You can start with a Tandem Skydive, an AFF course or a First Jump Course.
The information below will show you the different routes you can take to becoming a licenced parachutist.
Tandem skydives can be a great introduction to the world of parachuting.
Accelerated Free Fall Course (AFF)
An intensive course of 8 "levels" which can be completed in as few as 4 days. Jumps take place from up to 13,000ft. Level one of this course can be done as a "one off" experience or you can commit to the complete course.
First Jump Course
A 2 day course culminating in a static line parachute descent from approx. 3,500ft. This course can be done as a "one off" experience or you can progress onto the Category System to gain your skydiving licences.
After completeing level 8 of the AFF Course, you make 10 "consolidation" jumps to practice all your new skills. You are mentored by instructors throughout.
The Category System
You complete the 8 categories of the system learning new skills with each level. This is a pay per jump course and can be done to suit your own timescale. (Once you have obtained category 5 you may transfer to AFF level 3 if you wish).
An A Licence qualifies you to skydive solo from maximum altitude and to continue with more advanced training.
“I had a truly awesome experience yesterday, in every way. I was absolutely terrified but felt totally invincible afterwards and I even fell in love with your cameraman, Mike! Cam was lovely too and if I decide to do it again it would have to be with him. It was all very professional, from start to finish. They were a great bunch and I will recommend this to anyone and everyone. I jumped for the MS Trust and secured £723 in sponsorship so far with promises of more to come. It is great to feel alive again.”
“First ever tandem skydive for worthing churches homeless project today, loved it. Special thanks to my instructor Jay and the cameraman trevor who both made me laugh a lot and really relaxed me! definately want to jump again Thanks guys for a great day!”
"First charity tandem skydive done here last Saturday. Despite being extremely scared, the instructors made me feel completely at ease and in safe hands. Highly recommend anyone doing a jump, to do it here. Would definitely consider doing another skydive off the back of this experience despite my fear of heights and flying. Brilliant day and life experience. Thank you."
