Are you ready to go beyond the tandem skydive? At Skydive Danielson you can learn to jump solo by joining our skydiving license program. After you complete your USPA A License you will be able to skydive with other licensed skydivers. This program will begin your skydive training and develop your skill set to become a safe, skilled and competent solo skydiver. Our program is geared towards people looking to get into the sport of skydiving. For those of you who want to skydive more often this is the program is for you!
The USPA A license is just the introductory license in skydiving. You can also earn a B, C or D license as you become more proficient. Skydive Danielson offers training for all licenses.
To become a certified skydiver you will need to complete 25 skydives. Our program is designed to take you all the way through these 25 jumps and complete a USPA Proficiency Skill Card which earns you the "A License".
Skydive Danielson takes pride in our training program. Our skydiving class A license offers a few unique features that you want to know about - 1 on 1 parachute training and indoor skydiving. You can train anywhere, but why not train with the best?
Two training tandem skydives are required to start our licensing program. Why? Because it makes you a better skydiver. It's a safer method and it enhances learning. Learn how to land your parachute from the Pro's before flying one by yourself.
We offer an optional 20 minute wind tunnel training session unique to our school. Learning how to have a stable body position in a controlled environment is very helpful and boosts confidence. 20 minutes in a wind tunnel is the equivalent of making 40 skydives.
Skydive Danielson offers a complete training program to earn your A license.
USPA Skydiving License
Our pricing below shows you how much each part of our training program costs and the break down for each skydiving license level of your USPA Class A skydiving license.
Skydiving students take a varying range of time to complete their license. We have had customers who have earned their license in 3 weeks and we have had customers take 2 seasons to complete the requirements. It really depends on how much time you have to commit to skydiving, how flexible your schedule is to come jump on good weather days and the weather conditions on the days you come to skydive.
A skydiving license is not about the destination - it is about the journey. If it takes a long time to learn to skydive you will be a much more knowledgeable skydiver. Being knowledgeable in this sport helps you stay safe. You will spend many days at the skydiving center not skydiving, but you have lots to learn on the ground!
If you have been wondering how to get your skydiving license, look no further. To book an appointment, simply choose ''Tandem Jump'' when booking. Upon checking in at our facility, let us know you would like to start training in our Learn To Skydive program.
Book Your Jump!
Start your training off with 2 tandem skydives. These jumps are going to be different than what you may have previously experienced on a tandem skydive if you have done one 'just for fun' before. Being attached to a Pro as you learn how to fly a parachute safely to the ground is the best learning technique available for parachute flight.
While wind tunnel is optional, it is highly recommended. We will take a field trip to SkyVenture NH in Nashua, NH. The wind tunnel uses the most advanced form of training available for learning how to skydive.
*Special scheduling: held on Sunday evenings. Speak with our office to book.
We will focus on preparing you for solo jumps during your Ground School.
Congrats, you have graduated past tandem skydives! Time to put your hard earned skills to the test. Your first jump will be with 2 instructors holding onto your harness followed by jumping with just 1 instructor for the next 4 skydives.
After meeting the requirements for jumping solo you will graduate onto coach jumps and solo skydives. All coach jumps include a complimentary video of your skydive and full debrief. A total of 25 skydives is needed to graduate with your "A License" which includes 6 coach jumps and 12 solos.
Attend a half day packing class with a parachute packer. Learn what each component does and how it all fits together. Spend time with your instructor packing your parachute until you understand the method. Gain confidence in your equipment through knowledge.
