The buzz doesn’t get any better than this. If you’re looking for the daredevil in yourself then look no further, this is for you.
This is a two day course that covers all aspects of your jump.
This training method has just been introduced in Australia and due to our experience and long history training skydivers. Commando’s is the first of only two Drop Zones in Australia approved to use it.
On arrival day 1: You will be introduced to your course instructor who is a highly experienced and accredited person within the Australian Parachute Federation whom throughout the day will cover a broad range of topics all designed to make your jump as safe and memorable as possible. Classroom lessons where you will learn what will be required of you as well as practical work covering safety and what to do whilst in exiting the aircraft, under canopy and landing.
At the completion of day 1: You will be required to sit a multiple choice exam from which you will then cover some of your requirements for your first jump sequence that will be take place on the second day.
On arrival day 2 (Sunday): Once your exam has the tick of approval we move into some additional ground training from which point you will be introduced to the AFF instructors that will be accompanying you on your jump. After a final run through and checks we go and parachute.
From this point on you just have to be there to understand the experience that you are about to embark on, from shear exhilaration to self-accomplishment that comes from a parachute descent.
Solo Skydive is a well proven training method used around the world to train skydivers. At Commando’s we have adapted this training method to suit civilian needs and provide a complete training course.
Your initial two day training course covers everything you need to know, includes equipment and aircraft hire as well as your first jump. The first four jumps on this program use an Instructor Aided Deployment (IAD) method (your instructor deploys your parachute). From then on you move on to opening and flying the parachute yourself.
Other stuff you need to know
Age – from 16 years upwards.
Dress Code – something comfortable you would wear to exercise outside, and sports shoes.
Weight – maximum weight is 100kg.
Once you’ve completed the nine stages of the Solo Jump course, you’ll have your “A” licence and you’ll be ready to enjoy the exciting new world of skydiving!
