West Australian Skydiving and Parachute Training Information
There are 2 types of 1st time jumps available and it is really a matter of personal choice as to which one you choose.
Experienced Skydivers/Fun Jumpers can find Information on our Licensed Skydivers/Fun Jumpers Page.
The Tandem Jumps require very little, in the way of instruction with traditionally only a 20 minute briefing required to show you exactly what is involved and what to do. You are secured to the front of an experienced Tandem Master prior to exiting the aircraft, throughout the 200km/h freefall, the parachute ride and landing....easy, and a great gift idea. click on the Tandem button for more information.
AFF (Accelerated Freefall) beginners first jump courses are run regularly with training tailored to your requirements. Certainly more involved than the Tandem jump but the feeling of self esteem once completed makes the extra effort worthwhile. Two freefall Instructors jump with you actually holding on to you to and monitor and help out where required and once you are under parachute you simply follow them home to the landing area. See the AFF page for more Accelerated Freefall information.
What is a Static Line Jump?
Static Line jumps rely on you exiting the aircraft by yourself at low altitude, usually from only 3,500ft. As you drop away from the aircraft by yourself you depend on a line attached to the aircraft one end and to the parachute the other end, to activate your main parachute.
NB: The Academy does not offer Static Line jumps as a beginners first jump option.
