tip_icons_check_mark TIP: When comparing pricing for different dropzones to complete your license training, be sure you are quoted all the fees. Some dropzones do not include all the costs you will incur on their website. Some only show a portion of the jumps needed to get your license. No matter where you choose to train, you will be responsible for: USPA fees, taking a ground school/first jump course, completing AFF jumps, coach jumps, solo jumps, equipment rental, and parachute packing lessons. There will be additional costs for any jumps you need to repeat to meet the performance criteria to have it signed off for your license.

“A” License Jumps

Each jump in the program is designed to progress you through the USPA A License proficiency card, which you will need to complete in order to be issued your license from USPA. The skills you learn will allow you to control your movement in the sky and perform maneuvers you’ll need to know for jumping with other people. You will also learn the fundamentals of canopy control and landings. The Freefall University Program uses the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) instructional method, followed by a combination of jumps supervised by coaches in freefall and you practicing skills on your own. Each jump must be completed in a satisfactory manner before you will be able to move onto the next level.

All prices include the necessary slots on the airplane, gear rental, professional parachute packing and instructional fees. Every effort will be made to provide you video of each jump that your instructor or coach shoots during the skydive. At Chicagoland Skydiving Center, we offer two pricing options to complete your Freefall University jump classes. You can pay per class at your own rate or you can prepay for all jumps to receive a discounted rate.

  • Pay as you go Price - $2,974.75
  • Prepaid Package Price - $2,774.75 ($200 savings)

USPA Membership Fee - $65/Annually

Membership required in order to complete AFF jumps since you will now be wearing your own parachute. We will provide you with the necessary paperwork during your visit. After you become a licensed skydiver, your membership and licenses must be renewed annually.

Student Recurrency Training - $220 for unlicensed jumpers - price includes gear rental

USPA has requirements for how how much time you can let pass between skydives and still be considered current on your training or license. Students must jump at least every 30 days. If more time passes between jumps, you will need recurrency or refresher training which includes portions of the ground school, emergency procedures review and a supervised jump with a coach or instructor.
