Learn to Skydive Solo

Become a Licensed Skydiver

Maybe you've already made a tandem skydive and LOVED it. Maybe you've always wanted to learn to skydive solo. Or maybe you want to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. Whatever your reason, Skydive Cincinnati can help you achieve your goal of becoming a licensed skydiver!

Choose Your Skydive Training Course

Skydive Cincinnati offers two methods of instruction for students wishing to learn to skydive: Accelerated Freefall and Static Line. Both methods will prepare you to skydive solo, but each uses a different curriculum to help you get there.

Our Accelerated Freefall Course is the most comprehensive training program. Your first solo skydive will be from full altitude and you will deploy your own parachute. Our Static Line Course is just as effective, but it will start you at a lower altitude using a static line to deploy your parachute for you. For more details on each course, please visit our AFF Course page and our Static Line Course page.

How Do I Get My Skydiving License?

Once you've completed your training course, you'll be eligible to earn your "A" skydiving license. To earn your license, you'll need to complete a total of 25 jumps, pass a written test, successfully complete a check dive with an instructor, pack your parachute, and become a member of the USPA (United States Parachute Association).

After receiving your "A" license, you can progress towards earning more advanced licences and skydiving certifications. The possibilities are endless!

How Much Does It Cost to Learn to Skydive?

For detailed pricing on each of our training courses, please view the pricing tables below. Please note, that students can pay on per jump basis or pay the entire sum of the training upfront. We do offer a discount for students who prepay for the entire course (details are listed below).
