Need a little excitement in your life? Want to learn to do something extraordinary? Looking for a way to put your earthbound worries in a more manageable perspective? Come check out West Michigan Skydiving Academy!
This is not your typical "Carnival Ride" tandem jump! What we're offering is an opportunity to actually Learn to Skydive.
Whether you want to learn to fly Wingsuits, learn to Freefly, or you're interested in Bigway Formation Skydiving, Our Instructor Assisted Deployment (IAD) class is the first step to getting you there.
This class is not for everybody! You must be in decent physical condition, under 230lbs., and fairly athletic. You should also be able to operate well and keep a cool head under pressure.
If this describes you, sign up for classes today!
First Jump Course is $179 including groundschool, all required equipment, and your first skydive. On your first day, after an intense ground training session, you will climb out of the airplane 4000 feet above the ground (without a guy strapped to your back) and as you jump, your instructor will assist you with deploying your parachute.
Additional jumps ($79 each) will take you to progressively higher altitudes and longer freefalls where you will learn to fly your body and perform maneuvers like turns, forward movement and backflips. At the end of our student program you will have earned your USPA "A License".
Licensed skydivers can jump (with their own gear) for as little as $10/jump! As a graduate of our program and a USPA License holder, you'll also be able to begin working on earning instructional ratings and pursue a career in skydiving. Check out the classified ads at www.dropzone.com to see what kind of opportunities around the world are available to USPA rated skydiving instructors. We can help you get there!
