The Cost Low Down

Skydive Robertson asks that you do a FTJ course and at least one static line jump before making a decision on whether you want to do Student Progression or Accelerated Freefall. Based on you attending a FTJ course, doing one static line jump, then continuing with the AFF ground school and passing every level or test first time, Student Progression results in you having done 24 jumps and will cost R17,255 whereas Accelerated Freefall results in you having done 11 jumps at a cost of R20,000, but would result in quicker finish. The choice is yours…

For Student Progression you’ll need to complete 3 static line jumps and 5 dummy ripcord (DRP) jumps, of which one or three will be included as part your FTJ. When you do a dummy ripcord jump you need to keep hold of the dummy ripcord, if you drop it you’ll have to buy another for R60.

Think About It This Way

Looking at the straight costs of the different approaches and levels doesn’t really give you the full picture. Doing your training is not your final goal, your final goal is to become a competent and safe skydiver who continues to skydive regularly; and each of those fun jumps has a cost. A jump ticket for an experienced jumper is R390 to 11,000 feet; if you need to rent gear that’s R145 per jump which excludes a re-packing fee of R50. That means in total each jump will cost R585 until you have your own gear and you know how to pack.

So yes, there is a straight price for both the Student Progression and Accelerated Freefall, but when you subtract the cost of a fun jump from each level you then see the fee for the training part of each jump. For example, if you take the R730 cost of the final ten progression jumps and subtract R585, you’re left with R145 which is the cost for your briefing, dispatch and debrief.

The training component of your jumps just adds a little bit extra to cost of fuelling your growing addiction…
