IAD provides an economical method of making a first jump as well as
subsequent jumps. During the 4-6 hour first jump course you will learn
how to climb out of the aircraft and exit with a stable body position
while the parachute deploys immediately. A certified IAD Instructor will
train you and assist you with the exit from the aircraft. Once your
parachute is deployed you will fly it to the landing area with radio
assistance if it becomes necessary. This is a great way to enter
the sport and makes for an easy transition to freefall and the AFF
program for continued training towards your skydiving license.
