Once you’ve completed the nine stages of the Solo Jump course, you’ll have your “A” licence and you’ll be ready to enjoy the exciting new world of skydiving!

This is a two day course that covers all aspects of your jump.

This training method has just been introduced in Australia, and due to our experience and long history training skydivers, Commando's is the first of only two Drop Zones in Australia approved to use it!

On arrival day 1, you will be introduced to your course instructor who is a highly experienced and accredited person within the Australian Parachute Federation, whom throughout the day will cover a broad range of topics all designed to make your jump as safe and memorable as possible, ranging from the classroom covering what will be required of you, to practical work covering safety and your requirements whilst in freefall, under canopy and landing.

At the completion of day 1, you will be required to sit a multiple choice exam from which you will then cover some of your requirements for your first jump sequence that will be take place on the second day.

On arrival day 2 (Sunday), once your exam has the tick of approval, we move into some additional ground training from which point you will be introduced to the instructor that will be accompanying you on your jump.

Once all your ground training has been fulfilled it's time to board the plane and have FUN!

From this point on you just have to be there to understand the experience that you are about to embark on, from shear exhilaration to self accomplishment that comes from a skydive and parachute descent.

Solo Skydive is a well proven training method, used around the world to train skydivers. At Commando's, we have adapted this training method to suit civilian needs, and provide a complete training course.

Your initial two day training course covers everything you need to know, includes equipment and aircraft hire, as well as your first jump. The first 4 jumps on this program use an Instructor Aided Deployment method (your instructor deploys your parachute) , and then you move on to opening and flying the parachute yourself.
