Description of the Accelerated Freefall Course

Ground School Training

Your ground school will last approximately 6 hours, and you'll be introduced to all aspects of skydiving including the equipment you will use and the manner in which you will utilize all your skydiving equipment including your main and reserve canopies.

You'll be taught all of the normal procedures for exiting the aircraft and proper body position to maintain during freefall, enabling you to fly your body in a stable and confident manner.

Ground school will also cover all required emergency procedures and all the fundamentals of piloting your canopy for a safe and accurate landing at the drop zone.

If you would like to read some instructional materials that will familiarize you with your Ground School Instruction in advance of your visit to Skydive Sebastian, he USPA has created an Online Ground School that you will find instructive and helpful.

Three Training Skydives with two Instructors

Two jumpmasters are assigned to each individual student and, weather permitting, you will be able to "suit up" and make your skydive!

This provides for 40 seconds of freefall directly supervised by two USPA certified jumpmasters and allows you to land your parachute with radio instruction.

During your second and third training jumps you continue to learn the basic movements of body flight and ground reference awareness as you fall with your jumpmasters next to you.

Four Training Skydives with one Instructor

You learn basic control during freefall such as:

  • 90 degree and 360 degree turns
  • forward flight
  • The skills required for more precise turns
  • Forward movement
  • Spotting (directing the aircraft to a safe exit point)
  • More advanced maneuvers, including front flip and back loop and recovery from planned unstable body positions.

When you're ready you will give your instructor a "solo" demonstration of the skills you have learned.
