Become a Licensed Skydiver
Did you enjoy a tandem skydive and want to take the experience to the next level? Skydive Toronto is proud to offer two different progressions to becoming a solo certified skydiver in 5-7 days (weather permitting). Each program begins with a one-day ground school and your jumps are conducted throughout the same week.
In our ground school, you will be taught all of the fundamentals required to successfully complete your first solo skydive. You will learn about your equipment, how to exit the airplane, freefall body position (arch), parachute piloting, and emergency procedures.
Find out what you need to get skydiving
Before enrolling in one of our solo student progressions, it is mandatory to complete a tandem skydive as a prerequisite. If you did your prerequisite jump at another location, proof of your skydive will be required before you can enroll.
A signed entry to a logbook, first jump certificate, video or pictures of your tandem are all acceptable.
Are you 40+ years old? You are required to bring a medical clearance certificate from your family physician. Please review this document for more information. The maximum weight for solo skydivers is 214 lbs, and the minimum age is 18 years old. Good command of the English language is required, demonstrated through listening, writing, speaking and applying.
If all requirements are not met, Skydive Toronto reserves the right to cancel your solo progression course at any time.
