At Skydive River Valley, we teach new jumpers with the Instructor Assisted Deployment Method or IAD. We follow the USPA method of instruction.
The IAD method allows for instructors to easily deploy students' parachutes. You will go through 6 hour ground school to learn everything there is to know about your first solo skydive and to land safely. Subsequent IAD jumps will be made until student is cleared for solo supervised freefall.
Students will be provided with all gear, such as parachute rig, altimeter, goggles, jumpsuit, and radio. Once students are cleared for solo supervision (no longer require instructor), gear can then be rented.
A Tandem Skydive is required before learning to skydive solo.
Ground School - $100
1st IAD Jump to A License$110*
