Skydive School

Do you want to learn to skydive? Of course you do, you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t. C’mon, join the revolution.

Beginners might think that parachuting and skydiving are simply the act of leaping out of a plane, pulling the ripcord and letting the parachute lower the skydiver gently to earth.


Learn to Skydive in BC. Some instruction must be passed from expert to newcomer before-hand. So, let’s start at the very beginning. How does one go about becoming a skydiver and jumping all by oneself?
The AFP, Solo Skydive License, is administered at our sister location in Innisfail Alberta at Alberta Central Skydive.

Accelerated Freefall Program

Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is a 9 level, 9 skydive program that culminates with you achieving all of the necessary requirements to acquire your Canadian Sport Parachute Association (CSPA) Solo license. This enables you to do solo skydives, without an instructor, anywhere in Canada and the United States.

Ground School Program

The Ground School Program is designed to teach you, in baby steps, the fundamentals you need to prep for jump, exit the plane, remain aware of altitude, free fall in a stable position, do very basic maneuvers, deploy from a stable position at the right time, assess and react to an emergency, fly your canopy, and land safely. You learn these skills with an instructor (or two) beside you and coaching you every step of the way, in our Learn To Skydive course.



Before you ever jump, you train. Ground School students first take a course, taught by a certified jump master, in which you spend approximately 6 hours learning all the fundamentals of the sport and equipment and emergencies. Take ground school seriously. It’s there for a reason.

Learn to Skydive in BC prepares you with the practical knowledge needed to make jumps. The ground school covers training, safety, free fall body position, emergency methods, and canopy (parachute) control. Following completion, you will be qualified to participate in Solo Skydive course.

Skydiving is a sport in which you pretty much can never learn enough. Almost everybody, from newbies to serious veterans with more than 10,000 jumps, all say the same thing: Learn something every time.
