Static Line parachuting is a course of parachute jumps designed to take you from a first time jumper to a qualified skydiver.
The first jump course gives you a unique sense of personal achievement, knowing that you did it all by yourself. The course takes 6 hours and ends with you making your first solo parachute descent.
You can then carry on with the category training system moving on to free fall on your 6th jump. As you progress you will learn how to turn, back loop and dive out of the skydiving aircraft. This parachute course leads to you becoming a qualified skydiver with an F.A.I. worldwide recognised skydiving qualification.
You must be in good health and have a reasonable level of fitness to complete a Static Line Course although you don't need to be super fit or tough!
You must be at least 16 years of age and if you are under 18 a Parent or Guardian Consent Form is required (please request this here). The upper age limit for this type of skydive is 55 years of age. All parachutists will be required to sign a BPA Medical Certificate as a declaration of fitness. In the case of any person aged 40 or over we require this to be signed by a doctor. This will be forwarded to you if you make a booking.
The upper weight limit is 15 stone (95 kg) for males and 13 stone (83 kg) for females. Please contact us with details of your height if you are near this limit.
