Robertson Skydive School 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 Student Progression or AFF and passing every level or test first time, Student Progression results in you having done 24 jumps at a cost of R17,415 whereas Accelerated Freefall results in you having done 10 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 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.


Looking at the straight costs of the different approaches and levels doesn’t really show the value.  Doing your training is not your final goal, your final goal is to become a competent and safe skydiver who continues to skydive regularly; 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 includes 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 bit extra to the cost of fuelling your growing addiction…


Whenever the dropzone is open we have an instructor and jumpmaster on duty, all you need to do is turn up with your logbook. When you get to the dropzone hunt down the duty jumpmaster and tell them what you want to do next.  Then you’ll be briefed and asked to manifest yourself when you are ready. Depending on which level or test you are doing you’ll also need to make sure the jumpmaster is also manifested.  Once you’re done, and you successfully did what you needed to do on the jump, the jumpmaster will sign you off in your logbook and you can get ready for your next jump.  Student skydivers are only permitted to jump three times in one day, as a new jumper the adrenaline highs and inevitable drop in adrenaline levels become tiring so you’ll be limited to three jumps a day.  You can help yourself by eating regularly to keep your blood sugar levels up.

When you leave, visit manifest and they’ll tell you how much you owe. You can either pay by cash or EFT.  The benefit of doing Student Progression is that each jump is generally cheaper than AFF so it’s much easier to budget, and not so bad if you fail a level and have to retake.


As a student you’ll need to stay current, which means jumping at least once a month although we recommend jumping at least twice a month if not more. With concurrency comes comfort in the plane and in the air, which means you’ll find each level easier than if you jump once a month.  There are rules that say what happens if you are uncurrent by a month, by three months or more. If you become uncurrent three times in quick succession you’ll get what’s called ‘the golf speech’ where you’re told that maybe skydiving isn’t for you and you should probably be playing golf instead.  Once you’re addicted like the rest of us, this rarely becomes an issue.

    You DO NOT need to have done any previous tandem jumps to learn to skydive, you just need to be healthy and less than 100kg.

    Skydiving is a very social sport, that’s why we encourage you to come to the dropzone for the weekend.  The FTJ course takes up most of Saturday, by which time it’s too late to jump, so your jump will be on Sunday morning.  There is plenty of space to pitch a tent, plus we have a clubhouse with a kitchen and showers. Everyone at the dropzone braais on the Saturday evening so come and spend the evening with our members and let them tell you about their skydiving adventures.
