Making an IAD Parachute Jump - Instructor Assisted Deployment
Imagine jumping from an airplane flying 4,000 feet above the ground at 80 mph!
Your parachute is deployed immediately as soon as you let go of the airplane for
solo parachute descent! Of course, there is some training that takes place to
get you ready for this incredible jump! The ground training takes anywhere from
four to six hours to complete. During the course you will learn how to exit the
airplane, practice correct body position for the exit and learn how to fly and
land the parachute. Provided the schedule, weather and aircraft are cooperating
we get you up for your skydive on the same day as your ground training. There
will be an instructor with you who will assist you with the exit from
the airplane and deploy your main parachute as you let go of the airplane. Once the parachute
is open a few seconds later, you will guide it to the landing area. Your canopy flight is backed by
radio assistance in the event you need any guidance!
IAD students have the option of progressing to the AFF program in two different
ways. You can complete three IAD jumps and move to Category C of the AFF program
or move into the AFF program on your second jump, in Category B of the AFF
program. This provides you with a slightly cheaper introduction to skydiving and
your training progression. The initial IAD jump is $199 and the two subsequent
IAD jumps are $85 each.
