Why learn to skydive at Jurien Bay?

Skydive Jurien Bay has commenced a world first “Accelerated Freefall/Wind Tunnel Course” which we have called our “WTF AFF Camp”, standing for Wind Tunnel Freefall Camp. It’s proven to be a massive improvement on the traditional AFF course and resulting in better skills, faster progression and fewer stage repeats. It’s the future and it’s only at Skydive Jurien Bay.

Skydive Jurien Bay has a beach-side location, an immaculate safety record, the most highly qualified instructors, personalised tuition, accommodation included, amazing coastal views, modern equipment, and an awesome family vibe! There really is no better place to learn to skydive in Perth, WA. In fact, a lot of our staff learnt to skydive with us and we’ve also had some students going on to represent Australia at world skydiving championships.

Our new course is unique in the world. It has made learning to skydive easier, faster, safer and cheaper! It starts with an online training course which you can complete at your own pace at home. Then, you go to the iFly indoor skydiving tunnel in Perth for 20 minutes of Accelerated Freefall specific flying coaching (20 x indoor skydiving flights). This is the equivalent of 20 skydives, and will ensure you can remain stable and on-heading before you even get into the real freefall experience. This makes it unlikely you will need to repeat stages of your skydive course because you haven’t met the objectives of a stage. You then come to Jurien Bay for your ground school, which will be easy after you’ve already been introduced to the info in the online course! On this day, you should also do Stage One, which is a tandem jump. The focus on this jump is learning to fly your parachute safely and accurately. It will be different to a normal tandem if you have done one before, in that you will get a one-on-one lesson with your instructor on your landing pattern, flaring the parachute, finding the stall point of your parachute, and different types of turns. On your tandem you will also initiate the exit, do height awareness exercises, plus deploy and check your parachute. Learning to land accurately is an important aspect of skydiving and there are accuracy requirements to obtain your skydiving licence. This tandem lesson means you can get your licence signed faster and be a safer skydiver in the process.

Next stage, normally the next day is Stage Two where you will jump your own parachute with one instructor looking after you in freefall, and also helping you via a radio in your helmet while you are flying your canopy. There are then an extra 5 stages when the fun really kicks off and you will learn 360 degree turns, forward movement, backflips and tracking. The best part is it will all be so easy because you have the confidence and control of the equivalent of 20 skydives in the indoor wind tunnel. Controlling your body in flight in the real environment of freefall is the best feeling there is. It will change your life!

So! Learning to skydive solo will be one of the most amazing adventures of your life. It’s a fantastic physical and mental challenge that will leave you with a huge sense of accomplishment. It’s a popular activity amongst men and women, and the friends you meet during your skydiving journey will become like family. Due to high winds during summer the learn to skydive courses run only between March and October each year.

“Thanks a lot for the most fantastic time at Skydive Jurien Bay. Learning solo skydiving is just great and you have the best instructors a student could wish for. Besides being on top of knowledge, they know how to encourage and guide scared beginners like me. And they are fun”. Kannler Horst – 2017
