Boasting more flight miles than rocket-powered geese, the enthusiastic and experienced flyers at the Durban Skydive Centre are eager to award you your training wings. Taking from five to six hours to complete, your static line courses begins with a set of lectures and practical instructions at Ground School Training. Studying everything from aircraft procedures and exits to parachute procedures and safe landing techniques, this all-inclusive training will have you gliding from the plane like an eloquent eagle and landing with the grace of a ballerina.The difference between a static line jump and a regular jump is that you don’t have the added pressure of pulling your own parachute. Opening automatically via a static line, once you’ve flung your white-knuckled self from 3,500 feet you will be able to enjoy a few seconds of blissful free-fall before your parachute pops open like a jack-in-the-box. Once your chute is out, you’ll be able to float safely down to holy ground with the expert guidance of your jump master.
