A Parachute Jump can be done just as a one off experience or as part of a course to progress on to freefall and skydiving. If you have time but want to spread the cost of learning to skydive over a longer period of time then the SL course may be just for you. It is a good way of experiencing parachuting if it is something that you might like to carry on with without the expense of an Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) Course. A single static line jump can also be done as a sponsored event for charity. A list of organisations promoting this is available upon request.

The SL Course requires a minimum of 6 hours instruction. Courses normally last a full day allowing for coffee, lunch & tea breaks and normally take place on the 1st Saturdays of each month, although other dates can be arranged for group bookings, with the parachute jump normally taking place the next day weather permitting. Occasionally during the lighter summer evenings jumps may be undertaken on the day of the course. Courses can be run on other days for groups of 5 or more if arranged in advance.
With the Static Line Parachute Jump method the parachute is deployed by a static line secured to a strong point within the aircraft. Progression to freefall is possible on later jumps. All parachutes used are of the Ram Air design & all reserves are fitted with automatic activation devices.
