Let's get licensed!

You will start the process with the AFF Solo Online First Jump Course.  You can watch a preview of what you will learn by clicking here:  AFF Solo Online First Jump Course Preview. When you have completed the online training, you will schedule your In-Person training and Category A Skydive! 

AerOhio Skydiving offers a unique and progressive training program.  We are the only skydiving school in the US that offers both an online first jump training course and VR parachute flight training before your first solo skydive.  You are able to experience a realistic, low pressure opportunity to fly and land a parachute preparing you for the flight and wind conditions on your jump day.  The online, self paced, first jump course and VR parachute flight training are amazing, advanced training tools.    

If you have already made your first jump, then you are probably hooked and ready to continue on to Category B.  This is the next step is to become a licensed skydiver and earn your USPA "A" license. As you can see below, the student program to earn the A- license is broken into categories, each containing several ground lessons and jumps. The program details are listed in the Category Posters. Click on each poster to see the detailed canopy and freefall skills you will be learning!  The training for each jump is approximately 45 minutes, so that means you can certainly do more than one jump in a day!
