About Prices for Learn to Skydive Near Chicago
Learning to skydive is something you don't do without proper instruction (otherwise it isn't learning to skydive, it is suicide). Our program brings you to a level of skills that exceed the USPAs minimum skills for an "A" license.
The total cost for jumps after your tandems is $3503.00 if you do not need to repeat any levels. On average, 50% of students repeat one level, it is rare to repeat more than one. If you repeated one level, your total cost (after your tandems) would be $3592.00. We do offer a pre-pay option at a discount over pay-as-you-go .
There are a few other additional costs for learning to skydive:
- 1. Your solo skydiving initial ground school class: This 6+ hour class costs $60.00
- 2. Your USPA membership: This is paid directly to the USPA prior to STP level 5 and costs $65.00
- 3. Your solo skydiving freefall class: This class reinforces the ground school class and adds valuable information. This 2+ hour class costs $20.00
- 4. Your parachute packing class: You must pack a parachute without assistance and jump with that parachute. This 4+ hour class costs $45.00
- 5. Your USPA "A" license fee: This is paid directly to the USPA after your 25th jump and costs $30.00
So if one did not repeat any levels, their total cost (after tandems) would be $3723.00. We understand that learning to skydive is not cheap (remember we had to pay to learn just like you). What you may not understand yet is how rewarding the training is.
Not only do you learn to skydive, but you learn to look at life in a different way.
Skydiving is total freedom.
Skydiving is the ultimate social networking.
Skydiving is total acceptance.
Skydiving is never going back or giving up.
