First Jump Course
September 17, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
A Skydive Allegan First Jump Course is offered to individuals who have completed two tandem jumps. The second jump is a Training Tandem where you are introduced to the Altimeter (a pressure sensing device showing altitude during jumps), Altitude checks during free fall (showing situational awareness), pulling the rip chord at parachute deployment time and explained the proper pattern flown and flair technique for landing parachutes solo.
Upon completion of your Training Tandem you are eligible to sit through the First Jump Course a five hour classroom and practical experience that will provide you with the tools, knowledge and experience necessary to successfully navigate yourself and a ram air parachute through a solo skydive.
The cost of the First Jump Course is $260.00 which includes a Skydive Allegan student logbook, a copy of the United Stated Parachute Associations Skydive Information Manual (SIM), the classroom portion of the FJC AND your first solo jump.
After the FJC and your first solo jump the price for jumping is cut in half to $100.00 and remains there until you graduate the student program at which time we cut the price in half again to $50.00 to then AGAIN be cut in half only a handful of jumps later when you get your A license and your own skydiving gear.
Yes that’s right licensed skydivers only pay $25.00 to jump from a minimum of 10,000 feet above the ground!
