Freefly Capital of Arkansas and the Midwest!
We have Static Line classes (solo jump classes) every Saturday beginning at 9:00 A.M.
(Sunday by appointment)
line training is the traditional method of learning how to skydive.
The Static line is a 12 foot long rip cord, one end of which is
fastened to the parachute, the other to the aircraft. It is used to
activate and deploy the parachute as the student exits. The instructor
does not jump with the student in this method. You must be 18 years old
and under 240 pounds.
You must be reasonably fit with moderate upper body strength.
comfortably and for the weather conditions. Jeans or shorts and a shirt
that tucks in are preferred. We ask that you do not wear a red shirt
(emergency cut away handles are color coded red). Tennis shoes are
recommended footwear, NO sandals or cowboy boots please.
training and the first jump usually are accomplished the same day,
weather and time permitting. Classes start at 9 A.M. You should
complete the ground school around 4:00 P.M.
How Does It Work?
Assisted during climbout by the USPA Static-Line Instructor,
student exits the aircraft solo with the parachute deploying
Exit and opening occur at approximately 4000 feet,
You should have a parachute over your head in 1.5 to 3 seconds after
exiting the aircraft,
Then you pilot your large, square, ram air
parachute to the landing area.
You will have a radio in which an
instructor talks you through the canopy flight and landing.
Ram-Air parachutes have about a 20 mile per hour forward speed and are
very maneuverable and responsive, very easy to fly and land.

about a 5 to 8 minute canopy ride.
The best part is you are the pilot!
On the average, it takes between 12 and 20 jumps to complete all of
the training and qualify to become a licensed skydiver. Through the
training we will remove the static line and you will be truly free
falling on about your 5th or 6th jump. We will then increase the exit
altitude and freefall time with each jump until we work you up to
10,000 feet and 45 second delays (freefalls).
$195 for the ground school and first jump.
Consecutive static line jumps through the student training syllabus are only $75.
After you graduate the program and are permitted to jump without supervision,
lift tickets are just $25 to 9,500 feet, or $25.00 to 11,000 feet.
