7 Level Accelerated Freefall Skydiving Package in San Jose, CA

An Accelerated Freefall Level One skydive is only the first step of seven in becoming an 'A' licensed skydiver in California. This comprehensive 7 Level Accelerated Freefall Training Course in San Jose offers a chance to experience freefall without the restrictions of being attached to a Tandem Master and teaches you all the skills that you need to learn in order to skydive solo. You will fly with two instructors, although with your own gear and under your own canopy, for the first three levels of the program and one instructor for the last four.

Each level must be completed within thirty days of the previous level. If you do not complete each level within the time limit, you must contact your instructor to find out how to continue the course. In step one you complete a waiver as well as an approximately six hour ground school before undertaking your first solo jump. The freefall for each jump lasts approximately 45 seconds, while the canopy ride after you release your parachute lasts approximately 5 minutes before you land. The specifics of each jump will be covered in the ground course beforehand. A better training program cannot be found near San Jose!

Though each skydive center varies slightly, each level can generally be described as follows:

 

  • Level One: Two jump masters will directly assist you during the exit from the plane and freefall. You release the parachute and are guided on your descent to land (possibly with radio assistance).
  • Level Two: Also with two instructors, you continue to learn the basics associated with body flight.
  • Level Three: With two instructors, you exit the plane and, depending on your skill at the time, you may have more or less time without the instructors holding on to your jumpsuit.
  • Level Four: In this level, you generally will learn heading control, or the use of 90 degree turns along with forward movement. In this jump you should only be with one jump master.
  • Level Five: This continues instruction with three-sixty degree turns and forward movement along with one jump master.
  • Level Six: You exit the plane with one jump master close by your side, but without direct aid in the exit. You learn delta tracking, recovery from planned unstable body positions, and freefall flips as you develop advanced maneuvering skills.
  • Level Seven: On this final jump, you complete a solo exit and demonstrate the skills you have acquired over the course. Videos are a great addition to this final jump that will grant you your 'Accelerated Free Fall' certificate.

 

Take skydiving to the ultimate level and train to be a licensed skydiver in San Jose, California!
