The IAD Student Program

We follow the IAD student progression for training students (at Seven Hills, it's also called the "solo" progression). This is an "ease you into it" type of progression, meaning you start at lower altitudes while you practice deploying your parachute. Once you demonstrate that you can deploy your own parachute safely, then we work our way up to 10,000 feet where you will learn freefall maneuvers such as turns, flips, barrel-rolls, and formation skydiving.

The Jumps

Below is a summary of the skydives you can expect on your way to earning your "A" license.


At Seven Hills, we offer two different pricing structures. You can chose whichever works best for you:

We also sometimes have solo progression specials on our specials page.

Take your first jump

It seems like a lot - but don't worry! We will walk you through each jump, starting at #1, at your own pace. If you're interested in becoming a licensed skydiver and are interested in your first solo skydive, check out the first jump page here. You can also call us with any questions at (608) 244 - 5252.

Beyond the A-license

Once you become an A-licensed skydiver, you have the opportunity to jump almost anywhere. However, we will continue to work with you to refine your skills, earn more advanced licenses (B, C, and D), enter skydiving specialties (like wingsuiting, freeflying, etc) and help you throughout your skydiving career.

Below are a few pictures of students that have received their "A" license recently!
