Upon successful completion of this course, you will have the tools you need to be a safe skydiver, and participate in all the fun this sport has to offer.
Static line course
This is the most cost effective way of learning to skydive. During this 6 hour training course the student learns how all the equipment works and how to fly and land a parachute safely. After the training course the student is taken to the Drop Zone which is in the beautiful Namib Desert, adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean. At the Drop Zone the student is briefed about the jump and is kitted up for the static line jump. Before the student walks to the aircraft, his equipment is re-checked and he is re-briefed on his jump by the static line instructor. When the aircraft reaches 1.000 feet the static line instructor hooks up the static line and at 3.000 feet gets the student ready for exit. After the exit the parachute opens gently and then the student flies his parachute safely back down to the ground for landing.
