Solo First Jump

Progressive Freefall

Progressive Freefall (PFF)

PFF is a method of skydive training which is considered "accelerated" because this progression is the fastest way to experience solo freefall. All jumps are normally from 10,500 ft. Jumps are initially made with two PFF Instructors who exit the aircraft with you. As you progress, one PFF Instructor accompanies you on your jumps.

Candidate space is extremely limited and is only offered to those who have taken the IAD course and have shown exceptional skills at the possibility of progressing through this accelerated method. All candidates are handpicked by the instructors through their performance at the drop zone. Price, commitment and scheduling will be explained to those chosen from the IAD program.

The PFF program takes you to the completion of jumps to finish the skills required for your CSPA Solo Certificate.

* Additional costs will incur if a specific level must be repeated..

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.
