Skydiving courses, in most cases, work the same way. A certified instructor will get you trained and he’ll try to scare you and make you not jump. That’s because the only thing he doesn’t want is a student that panics while free falling. You’ll then have to fill a lot of papers that you must go through if you want to jump. These documents make sure that if you get hurt the company will not be responsible. These are very scary but you’ll have to sign them if you want to jump.
When choosing the method you’ll first skydive you have to consider how much time you have and how much cash you’ve got. Off course, how brave you are is another factor and depending on these factors you’ll have to choose one of three methods for your first jump. The methods are tandem, static line and accelerated free fall. If what you want is to fly freely you have to go for accelerated free fall. Just want a nice ride, tandem might be the best choice. If you just want a quick ride you can go for static line.
A good thing to take into consideration is videotaping your first jump, that costs from $50 to $100. You’ll love looking back at how scared you were when jumping out of an air plane. If you choose to vide tape your jump another skydiver will jump before you do from the airplane and fly near you with a camera mounter the helmet.
