Static line parachute jumps


Fancy throwing yourself out of a plane at 3,000 feet? It is called a static jump because you will be attached to a 'static line' that automatically opens the parachute when you exit the aircraft. 

This is a two-day course, spending the first day training and familiarising yourself with the equipment and aircraft, then taking the jump itself on the second day. 

If the weather prevents you from jumping, your training is valid for at least two months, giving you plenty of time to return to the centre to complete your jump. Completion of this training course is the first step to becoming a fully qualified skydiver and all students receive a British Parachute Association approved certificate.
