A lot of people say want to go skydiving, but not many people follow through. At Ultimate Skydiving Adventures, we only teach those who are serious about skydiving! Skydiving is also a serious sport that requires a commitment of currency as each jump helps you conquer not only the skills but the mental aptitude to deal with high-stress situations.


Step 2: Choose A Course

At Ultimate Skydiving Adventures we train the Instructor Assisted Deployment (IAD) program either in a 3-Day or 7-Day Course progression. Either program begins with an at-home, self-paced digital course that must be completed before in-person training begins. Learn more about our DIGITAL COURSE here!


Step 3: Sign Up

Our team prepares to welcome you to begin your skydiving journey! Just note: this course payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable. Even though we do 3 and 7 days courses, sometimes weather and other conditions might require additional days to complete the course. The payment is good for one year from date of purchase.


Step 4: Start Training

The IAD, “First Solo Skydiving Course” is approximately four hours long however everyone learns at their own pace. This interactive training will cover the equipment, airplane procedures, exiting the airplane, body position, canopy flight and landing as well as emergency procedures. After the course, you will need to have signed up for your in-person orientation and practical and as long as weather permits, you’ll make your first jump and continue on until you’ve marked your 3 or 7 days of training.
