Come to New Jersey for Your Skydiving License!

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.

AFP Program

The AFP skydiving program at Skydive Cross Keys 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 and get your skydiving certification.

There is no standard timing since every student takes it at their own pace. You can get your license in as little as two weeks if you jump every day. USPA requires that you make at least one jump every 30 days to stay current. We encourage students to jump as often as possible; the less time between the jumps, the better your learning curve will be.

You have to be at least 18 years old, weigh under 250 lbs and be in good health to skydive. Our program is taught in English.

Below is a breakdown of our AFP program levels, jumps, and prices. There is no standard total skydiving course 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. On average, the total ballpark cost of getting to your A license is around $4,000.

You make your own schedule as you go. We do student jumps every day, as long as the weather permits. You can make 2-3 jumps per day if you like. The only requirement is that you don’t go more than 30 days without jumping during your training in order to stay current. (If that happens, you may need to take a refresher course.)
