Learn Skydiving in the Gorgeous South of France !!

Ever get that itch to jump out of a flying plane? Ok, we didn’t mean to ask if you have suicidal tendencies 🙂 Do you ever wonder what it would feel like to be a bird soaring through the skies, not a worry in the world? 

Well until Iron Man Suits or Jet Packs become available to us lesser mortals, skydiving is your answer!

There are more than 7 billion people in the world and just 100,000 or so skydivers, which puts you at 0.00001 percent of the world.

This is easily one of the most extraordinary skills you will acquire in life!

BEEP “Learn Skydiving” Trips

Every year for the last 4 years we have been organizing a bunch of International Skydive Gatherings around the world and this year is no different and our tribe of eagles is only growing. Come with us and do your Beginner’s Course to Learn Skydiving Solo at our next events in South France with some crazy ass people from around the world.

You don’t need any prior Skydiving experience of any kind to come do your beginners course for one week on this trip.

After this certification course for beginners you can skydive anywhere in the world on your own and you become part of a rare few in the world to do so, wooohoooo!

What’s the kicker you ask?

If you are going to be an eagle, you might as well soar over the super gorgeous French countryside in the south aka The South of France, so be prepared for mind-blowing views from the air during your jumps!!

And just because you are going to France doesn’t mean you have to burn a hole in your pocket to come along, we have got you covered and we mean it! Our Gatherings are designed keeping reasonable budgets in mind, as always!

And all of that, while learning from one of the most well renowned Skydiving Instructors in the world, more on him below….

 

“IS This Skydiving Trip For Me?”

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who is done with the same old adventure plans and wants to move over to the NEXT LEVEL and learn how to Skydive Solo (on their own). Plus, you will get to meet some kickass people from around the world who have similar lifestyle goals, to share this adventure with!

NOTE: You don’t need any prior Skydiving experience of any kind to come do your beginners course for one week on this trip.

Just to repeat, this is a trip to learn to skydive solo and get your Skydiving License and NOT to go do a Tandem Skydive i.e tied up to an Instructor in the same harness. If you are interested in just tandem Skydiving and not doing the course, then check out our legendary Annual Skydive Over The Himalayas event or our super rare Skydive Over The Pyramids of Giza event which is open to everyone and doesn’t involve any training or courses!

After this beginner’s certification course with us however, you will have the license to skydive solo almost anywhere in the world!

“But is it Safe to do a Solo Skydiving Course?”

If you consider that horse riding, cricket, football rank above skydiving as ‘risky’ sports, it should put things into perspective.

To put the most common fear to rest, Most people are not aware of this but modern skydiving equipment is so technologically advanced that the parachute deploys itself at a minimum set altitude even if you don’t end up opening your chute for any reason whatsoever!!!

To ease your mind more about safety, your Skydive Instructor “Jean Phi” as everyone lovingly calls him is our dear friend and partner on this annual series of events in France is a decorated ex-French Military Officer (and now trains the Military as an external expert) and is one of the top Skydiving Instructors in the world, with more than 20,000+ Jumps under his belt.

He is also one of the very rare people in the world to have skydived over Mount Everest.

 The real question is, do u want to let this amazing opportunity to learn an extraordinary skill pass by because of your insecurities and fears or are you ready to face them head on and be part of the 0.00001 percentile to soar the skies ? 🙂

After this course, you will have the license to skydive solo almost anywhere in the world!

 

To ensure a focussed and intimate experience during the Skydiving course, we limit the number of people per group for these “Skydiving Course Trips For Beginners” to around 5-6 people only.

But of course , you will meet a whole bunch of other crazy skydivers from all over the world at our Skydiving Base during this week. It is a super fun environment and every evening after the day is done, turns into a little party at the in-house Beer Bar sharing stories of the day’s skydives and what not!

Before you read further, you should know  that this 6-day course is open to complete beginners who want to learn skydiving with no previous experience of any kind necessary!

After this certification course for beginners you can skydive anywhere in the world on your own

Then later on you can continue forth into different advanced skydiving licence courses like A- License and B-Licence and so on as you move along in life with Skydiving, at your own pace and wherever you travel to next or even extend your trip in France and do your A-License…

  •   Day 1 of the course involves 5 – 6 Hours of Ground/Classroom Training to learn the procedures of Solo Skydiving and short ground briefings every morning. Training includes how to activate your parachute, how to maintain a stable body position in the air, Landing procedures and teaches the importance of altitude awareness etc and many other topics that form the theory part of this course.

Between Day 2 to Day 6 ( depending on weather) you will do 6 Assisted Solo Skydives along with your instructors which are the 6 levels of your course with daily briefings on the what’s and how’s of each level. You will have to pass these 6 progression levels over these 6 assisted solo jumps by displaying gear handling and other skills you learn in these Ground Training and Theory classes.

(Please note that in different countries, the number of jumps/levels of this beginners course are different as governed by the laws in that country, in France it is 6 levels. But that does not make a difference to the validity of the course and your license to jump solo after the course anywhere across the world)

Skydive 1 and 2:
  • During Skydive 1 and Skydive 2 of the course, there will be two instructors that jump along with you holding you safely and securely from either side through the loops on your JumpSuit.They will instruct you in the air from the moment you jump from the aircraft up until your landing, using hand movements and radio assistance to guide you through everything you learnt in Ground Training.

 

  • You will display some of the basic skills you learnt in Ground Training up in the air to them such as correct body position and simple hand signals etc, nothing too complicated.

Click here to watch a video of what Jump 1 and Jump 2 of the course look like in the air!

 

Skydive 3 and 4:
  • During Skydive 3  & Skydive 4 of the course, you will have one instructor holding you from one side up in the air instead of two and you will showcase some more skills in the air as per what you learnt in ground training such as how to turn left to right in the air and vice versa or how to go forward or backward in the air at will etc.

Skydive 5 and 6:
  • During Skydive 5 and Skydive 6 of the course, there will be 1 instructor jumping with you for guidance and safety and communicate with you using hand signals and gestures as usual but they won’t be holding you as much anymore and you will mostly be free to move around in the air on your own. You will display all the skills you learnt during the first 4 jumps and then deploy your own parachute and land in the airfield as per the training and briefing.

Upon successful completion of these 6 Skydives / Levels of the beginners Skydiving course, you will get your Solo skydiving certification and License!
In short, you are now officially an Eagle!

PS: This all may sound too hardcore at first, but trust us it’s not that complicated and more importantly, the feeling of flying through the air on your own is incomparable to anything else in the world.
