Signing up for a skydiving course is like taking a step into a fantastic new world where you will be carried away as far as your dreams will let you go. Some jumpers make 20-30 jumps per year and are compeletly satisified while others make a career out of skydiving, like instructors and adventurers who reach tens of thousands of jumps and make a living by skydiving year round across the whole world.
When, Where and How
Our English course starts on Thursday afternoon at the Gryttjom airfield. The weekend is spent learning about skydiving theory and doing practical exercises. Students are tested on Monday and jumping begins on Tuesday for everyone who passes the course. Then we jump as much as we can until Friday, weather permitting. Go to “Course Registration” to see when the next course is held.
What’s next after the course?
That’s when all the fun begins! We have rental rigs available for you while you’re searching for your own first set of equipment. Now you can make solo jumps or even jump with your friends. The opportunities that a skydiving license gives you are endless – make a carrier out of skydiving or travel around the world jumping in different countries just for fun – your fantasy is the only limit!
How long does the course take?
There are 10 student jumps included in the course and the amount of time it takes to complete these jumps depends on the weather and how many jumps you can make each day. Most students make 1-2 jumps per day in the beginning and later up to 3-4 jumps per day. If the weather is good then it’s possible to do all 10 student jumps in one week however it’s more common to need to come back to the airfield a few more times before all of the student jumps are completed.
- You must be at least 15 years old and have a guardian’s permission if you are under 18 years old.
- You must be completely healthy and certify this with a medical certificate.
- For safety reasons, we have a weight limit of 100 kg.
What happens during the course?
You’ll learn everything you need to know before making your student jumps – from the construction of a parachute, to the foundations of freefall and how to land safely. You’ll practice emergency procedures, reserve parachute deployment and learn how to pack the parachute. When you start jumping, you’ll be completely familiarized with the airplane and the landing area.
