Once you graduate from one of the following USPA approved Charlotte Skydiving School training programs, you will feel more secure and can skydive with the Skydiving Charlotte network at a much cheaper rate. The following describes the two most advanced Charlotte Skydiving School programs available around for new Charlotte Skydiving students.
Charlotte Skydiving School Level 1
Your Charlotte Skydiving School training begins with an approximately 6 hour ground school to provide you with a basic orientation including: aircraft procedures, freefall body position, canopy control, landing, practice parachute deployment, and more. Two Charlotte Skydiving School network certified jump masters will be assigned to you and will generally remain with you throughout your Charlotte Skydiving School program. During the approximate 60 second time frame that you are in freefall, safety is greatly enhanced by direct in-air jump master supervision. And to add to your safety net of protocols, you will land with radio supervision.
Charlotte Skydiving School Level 2, 3, & 4
During level 2, you will exit the plane with two Charlotte Skydiving School network jump masters, and continue to learn the basic skills for body movement in flight.
With level 3, you exit the aircraft with two jump masters and continue to enhance your basic skills. As your Skydiving Charlotte network jump masters judge that you have enhanced your abilities, your jump masters will release, but at all times be close by your side; you'll now experience the feel of acceleration on your first solo Charlotte Skydiving School experience with Charlotte skydiving.
Level four is here, and your more than halfway done with your certification training! As your skills continue to improve, you will be learning "Heading Control" with 90 degree turns and forward movement; this time will be with only one Skydiving Charlotte network jump master.
Charlotte Skydiving School Level 5, 6, & 7
During level 5, you will perform more controlled 360 degree turns and forward movement; one Charlotte Skydiving School network jump master will help guide your lesson.
Level 6! Finally! Your second and last solo exit with one Skydiving Charlotte network jump master close by your side. You will learn more advanced maneuvers as you dive out of the plane; demonstrating delta tracking (gliding across the sky), freefall flips and recovery from pre-planned unstable body positions are very important skills to learn in this level.
The last leg is the best! While no Charlotte Skydiving School network jump master remains with you in freefall, you make a diving exit and demonstrate your newly acquired skydiving skills. Video is a great addition to have during this dive, but as with any jump, it is an optional extra.
