Solo First Jump

Progressive Freefall

Solo First Jump $250


The first jump course is your first step into the arena of flight. This is where you will learn all the basics of flight that you will need for your return to Earth. It is a classroom based session held on the evening before you usually jump. Main topics of instruction are equipment, exiting the aircraft, body position, canopy control, safety procedures and last but not least... how to land.

After the course there is a complete review of what you have learned. On jump day, we gear you up for your jump. Our course includes all the equipment needed for your jump. Coveralls, parachute rental, goggles, helmet, altimeter and radio are all provided. Our expert staff will assist you in putting your gear on and go through a series of safety checks. A final review of the jump is done and your are on your way to the aircraft for your climb to altitude.

A first time student or IAD jumper is taken to an altitude of 3,500 feet for their first jump. Your instructor will check your gear for the final time and you will exit the aircraft. You let go and fall away as your parachute opens above you. Your training as well as radio assistance from our ground crew guides you to a safe landing after a 3 to 5 minute parachute ride.

Our staff will then assist you in taking your gear off, talk about the highlights of your jump and if you so desire prepare you for your next jump.

All first jump students receive a logbook containing the details of their jump experience. Subsequent student jumps are $75. You will then progress through the GFF program.

Amazing instructors, safety is very very important. Lots of good people to help you out with anything you want to know. Now with the new 206 up and running as well as the 182, that'll definitely get a few more jumps in.


I have had the opportunity to see some exciting changes in the drop zone. New people take that same thrilling step every year and those people become like your family. You all have something in common and regardless of anything else in life, you are welcomed.


What can I say... it is one great place to learn how to skydive and to have a good time. The staff puts safety before everything else, and the regulars make sure that you have a great time. For experienced jumpers driving through... just stop by and you can get on the next load.

Took the IAD course at Skydive South Sask and I thought that would be it. I knew I had to do it again and again! Everyone there has helped me in one way or another and they want you to keep coming back.
