Ever wondered what it would be like to 'that' person? You know who I’m talking about… The one with the gutsy determination and a huge drive for life, who sets their goals and achieves them. That person who makes all their dreams come true. They make things happen! They have that special something that you wish you had. But the funny thing is we can achieve anything we want if we put our minds to it. Have you ever thought of flying solo? Looked into skydiving courses? That person could be YOU today. This course has your name on it.
The A-License Course is the first step to becoming a qualified skydiver and is ideal for people who really want to take skydiving to the next level. Lets face it, there's plenty of things to do in Melbourne, but who can say they go skydiving at the weekends? After completing you’re A-Licence your opportunities are endless on where you may end up in the sport. You can skydive all over the world meeting many like-minded adventure sport specialists. The A-Licence full solo course can be taught in two different styles: Accelerated Free Fall or Static Line Free Fall. The below information is based upon our most popular A-Licence course option - Accelerated Free Fall (AFF). If you would like further information on static line parachuting then read up on our Static Line Free Fall full solo course. Its on the resources page.
You can complete the course two ways: Either book onto our 9 day course where you can complete all of your training in one block, or you can complete your training over various weekends at your leisure. Remember, for this option 4 weeks must be the maximum time between jumps due to currency and safety (I may mention that after 4 weeks retraining fees may apply, and we don’t want that!)
