How to get your skydiving license

After your first jump you may want to continue with this fantastic sport. The best way to do this is to book a basic course, be it an AFF or a static line course.

In these courses you learn the basics that will enable you to do solo jumps.

After this course you have to do your personal training jumps during which you have to pass three different tests to show your proficiency. Once you have done all the mandatory training jumps your instructor signs you up for the final exam which consists of two accuracy jumps and a freefall jump where you have to follow your examiner out of the airplane and do and hook up with him.
During your personal training you are also learning all the theoretical aspects of our sport. This part is completed with a written exam. Once you have passed both, the written and the practical exams, you are eligible to get your skydiving license.
