Skydiving License and Certification

Our skydiving training takes you from simply checking off your bucket list to becoming a true member of our sport. By getting your skydiving license, you will be able to jump with other people, build formations in the sky, practice different disciplines, pilot your canopy like a pro, travel the world and skydive at different drop zones, and become a member of a unique community of amazing people.

Our AFP program is one of the most advanced training methods available, designed to give you a quick start in the world of skydiving. Taught by some of the most experienced instructors in the country, using state of the art gear and aircraft, this program will comprehensively cover everything you need to become a safe member of our sport.

How long does it take to complete your skydiving training?

Our suggested progression would cover your 25 skydives in about 9 days. You can take it completely at your own pace - our instructors are available every day. The USPA requires that you make at least one jump every 30 days to stay current. The less time between the jumps, the better your learning curve will be!

How much does it cost to get your skydiving license?

Here is a break down of our AFP program levels, jumps and prices. There is no standard total price as the program is customized based on the student's progress. It largely depends on how often you come to jump. Jumping often will minimize your need for any refresher training, and therefore would minimize your cost.
