The Progressive Freefall (PFF) is a more modern way to train skydivers. This program allows you to experience a solo full altitude freefall skydive from 12,250 feet on your first level! Initially, two instructors hold onto you as you exit the plane, and they continue to hold you stable throughout your freefall using hand signs that they communicate to you—this is the key to the program. Rather than receiving feedback after your jump, the instructors are able to give you real-time feedback, so you learn what the correct and incorrect body positions feel like immediately. This process enables a vastly accelerated learning curve.
In order to register for this program, you must have completed either the Solo First Jump Course or a Tandem Skydive. If you did your prerequisite jump at another location, proof of your skydive will be required before you can enroll.
To begin, you would enroll in our one day Ground School, which runs every Saturday throughout the season, starting at 9 am. In the course, you will be taught all of the fundamentals required to successfully complete your first skydive. You will learn about your equipment, how to exit the airplane, freefall body position (arch), canopy control, and emergency protocol. We believe that the body and mind work best when rested, so we start with your first skydive on the following day.
- Levels 1–3 are with two instructors as you learn the correct freefall body position, altitude awareness, and how to deploy your own parachute.
- Levels 4–10 are with one instructor as your skills and awareness grow. You have gained more control of your skydive.
Once you are able to complete each required level, you will become a SOLO CERTIFIED SKYDIVER with the Canadian Sport Parachuting Association! You now have a nationally recognized certification and can jump at any school in Canada.
Staying current in this sport is very important. If it has been more than 60 days since your last skydive, you will need to repeat your last successful level. If it’s been more than 365 days since your last jump, you must take the Ground School over again. (Both of the above are additional costs.)
Are you 40+ years old? You are required to bring a medical clearance certificate. Here are further details on what it must consist of.
The maximum weight for solo skydivers is 214 lbs and the minimum age is 18 years old. Good command of the English language is required, demonstrated through listening, writing, and speaking.
