Learn to Skydive: How to become a skydiver…

Standard Course

On the very first exit, you'll be jumping on your own with Skydive CQ's standard learn to skydive course. Our Solo Skydiving Courses are one of the most cost effective ways to obtaining an "A" License and can be completed in just a few weekends! You will be guided by our experienced instructors all the way from start to finish, with modern equipment included, as well as your own logbook.

Training in small groups, Solo Courses begin with the static line method of skydiving, teaching canopy control and correct aircraft exit technique from lower altitudes, meaning cheaper jumps!

Then, you’ll transition to the higher altitudes to teach the prolonged freefall component of the sport. Instructors will teach you various techniques including back loops and flat spins!

At the completion of this course, you’ll be awarded with an "A" License, allowing you to jump without an instructors assistance and pack your own parachute. Jump tickets from this point are less than $50 + gear hire.
