||Level 1: Your training begins with a 6 hour
ground school that will provide you with a basic orientation, aircraft
procedures, freefall body position, canopy control, landing, practice parachute
deployment, and more. Two Accelerated Freefall Certified Jump Masters will
be assigned to you and will remain with you for the freefall portion of
Safety is greatly enhanced by direct in-air jump
master supervision. You will freefall for approximately 70 seconds, then
deploy your own parachute and land under radio supervision.
Level 2: You exit the plane with 2 jump masters,
and continue to learn the basic skills for body flight.
Level 3: You exit the aircraft with 2 jump
masters and continue to enhance your basic skills. As you progress, and
your flying skills improve, your jump masters will release but at all times
be close at your side, you'll now experience the feel of acceleration on
your first solo freefall.
Level 4: As your skills continue to improve
you will be learning "Heading Control" using 90 degree turns and forward
movement, this time with one jump master.
|Level 5: This level continues instruction
with more controlled 360 degree turns and forward movement with 1 jump
Level 6: Your first solo exit with 1 jump
master close by your side. You learn more advanced maneuvers as you dive
out and demonstrate delta tracking (gliding across the sky), freefall flips
and recovery from pre planned unstable body positions.
||Level 7: One jump master remains with you
in freefall while you make a solo DIVING exit and demonstrate your
newly acquired skydiving skills. Video is always good to have on this dive,
but it is an optional extra.
NOW THE FUN REALLY STARTS.

Level 1: This level is designed to introduce
you to the Arch body position, freefall turns, altitude awareness, deploying
the main parachute, and canopy control.

and assist with the landing.
Level 3: During level 3, you will be introduced
to advanced heading maintenance, controlled 360 degree freefall turns,
forward movement while in freefall, and canopy deployment. After this level
