Jump all year round

This is the ultimate jump for an adrenaline junkie. The accelerated parachute jump is the first part of the professional skydiver's course. You will have a full day's ground training from two qualified instructors before you dive solo from 10,000 feet.

Your day will start with a full day’s training including practical and classroom sessions covering all areas of making a solo skydive from 10,000 feet!

Whilst you will skydive solo (ie with nobody attached to you) your two instructors will jump with you and be by your side until approximately 5,000 feet when you pull your parachute canopy. From that point you will steer your parachute on your own but will be guided to the drop zone by ground control who will talk you down all the way.
