Tandem Skydive

You will wear a strong passenger harness, with which you will be securely connected to the front of a highly qualified Tandem Master. The two of you will exit the aircraft at 11000ft AGL and freefall at 200kph down to 5000ft AGL. The freefall will feel like you are suspended on a thick cushion of air it will almost feel as if you are freefalling by yourself as you will be weightless.

After 40 seconds of falling straight down at 200km/h, the Tandem Master will deploy the main parachute at an altitude of approximately 5000ft AGL. At this stage, everything slows down a whole lot. As the two of you drift gently down to earth, you will be able to talk to each other, enjoy the ride and the magnificent view. The canopy ride down to earth will last around 5-8 minutes, after which you will touch down gently in front of the club house.

There are various video options available to book to capture your experience. All camera options are professionally edited on the day for you to take home with you.

JSC runs a pre-manifest system where you can pre-book your jumps.

Static Line

A qualified static line instructor will present the class, which consists of a number of lectures covering everything from equipment to emergency procedures, to landing safely.

Accelerated Freefall (AFF)

Levels 1-3 are with 2 Instructors holding onto you, exiting from 11000ft.

Levels 4-7 are with 1 instructor and levels 8-10 are solo skydives. Static Line

The SL student is required to attend ground school training which is run every Saturday at the Dropzone from 08h00.

Weather dependent, the jump should happen on the same day if the student has passed the course and practical training.

The First Jump Course takes anywhere from 6-8 hours, depending on the size of the class. A qualified static line instructor will present the class, which consists of a number of lectures covering everything from equipment to emergency procedures, to landing safely.

Simply completing the ground school does not guarantee that the student will do the static line jump. The student must demonstrate a sufficient level of proficiency on the course material, as well as satisfy the instructor the he/she is able to perform the static line jump safely and correctly.

The student will exit the aircraft at an altitude of 3500ft AGL. The static line will deploy the parachute, and the student will perform certain checks and controls described during training. The student will then fly the parachute down to the drop zone.

AFF is the fast track way to experience freefall.

The AFF student is required to attend ground school training which is run every Saturday at the Dropzone from 08h00.

Additional training with an AFF instructor is performed post this ground school training.

The AFF programme is a 10 level programme. The student is required to pass each level before progressing. Each level has specific tasks the student needs to perform on that particular jump.

Levels 1-3 are with 2 Instructors holding onto you, exiting from 11 000ft.

Levels 4-7 are with 1 instructor and levels 8-10 are solo skydives.

Before each level, the AFF instructor will brief the student what is expected of him/her on the level. Once the jump has been completed, the AFF instructor(s) will de-brief the student and deliver a pass/fail verdict. The student then either repeats the jump or advances to the next level.

The AFF program should be completed within a 8 week period to benefit from the accelerated learning.

JSC runs a pre-manifest system where you can pre-book your jumps.

You can email bookings@jsc.co.za to secure your place. Please advise on which day, how many jumps, if you require a coach, if you need to rent club gear or not and how many loads you require in-between jumps to pack.

Be advised: JSC is 5500ft ASL. This means that the air is a LOT thinner than at sea level. This means an increase in canopies opening, flying and landing. Caution is advised. If you are used to jumping at sea level, please take extra care and feel free to speak to a JSC instructor if you have any questions.

Our jump altitude is 11,000ft AGL

JSC operates a C4M-TP Angel

Any student who has not made a jump for a period of one month and not exceeding 3 months shall undergo full refresher training under supervision of an appropriately rated Instructor before being made to repeat the previously successfully completed task. Thereafter normal progression if appropriate.

A static line student who has not made a jump for a period exceeding three months shall undergo full first jump course training and then perform at least one no task static line jump before being allowed to progress normally.

A freefall progression student who has not yet passed the dive exit test, who has not made a jump in the preceding 3 months shall be required to: undergo full refresher training; one DRCP jump; 1 3sec delay and then the previously successfully completed task before being allowed to progress normally.

A freefall progression student who has passed the dive exit test, who has not made a jump in the preceding 3 months shall be required to: undergo full freefall refresher training; the 20sec dive exit jump; and then the previously successfully completed task before being allowed to progress normally.

An AFF student who has not made a jump for a period exceeding 3 months shall be required to: undergo full refresher training under supervision of an appropriately rated Instructor and then: If last jump was level 1, 2 or 3 – repeat the previously successfully completed task before being allowed to progress normally. If last jump was level 4 – 10 perform a level 3 check-out jump; then repeat the previously successfully completed task before being allowed to progress normally.

An Intermediate jumper who has not made a jump for a period of one month and not exceeding 3 months shall undergo full freefall refresher training under supervision of an appropriately rated Instructor and then perform a stable delay of at least 20 seconds on familiar gear with practice touches. Opening should be minimum 4000ft.

An Intermediate jumper who has not made a jump for a period of 3 months and not exceeding 12 months shall undergo full freefall refresher training under supervision of an appropriately rated Instructor and then perform at least 1 jump with a FS Instructor. The jump should include a linked exit, body position check and 2 practice touches. Familiar gear. Opening should be minimum 4000ft.

An Intermediate jumper who has not made a jump for a period exceeding 12 months shall undergo full static line training under supervision of an appropriately rated Instructor and then perform at least 1 static line DRCP jump; one 5 second delay (AAD rig); one 20 second delay on familiar equipment with practice touches. Opening should be minimum 4000ft.

As an alternative, the Intermediate described above may get re-current by: Undergoing full freefall refresher training; performing an AFF level 3 jump with 2 qualified, rated AFF Instructors. Then the last successfully completed category test before normal progression.

A CI/SO may require any other jumper who has become un-current due to inactivity to undergo retraining and make such jumps that CI/SO deems necessary for him to become current.

B, C and D licence holders must realise that extended periods of inactivity make them un-current. They should request the assistance of an Instructor in refreshing their drills and knowledge, and then perform appropriate re-currency jumps before continuing with normal activities.

A parachutist who is required to perform prescribed jumps in order to become current, shall where possible, perform such jumps on equipment with which he was familiar at the time immediately preceding the period of inactivity.

Only current AFF Instructors may be appointed to perform AFF style re-currency jumps. In this case appropriate AFF equipment shall be utilised.
