Seven Hills Skydivers of Madison, WI

Solo (IAD) Skydive rates to get your "A" license

One of the benefits of the IAD instructional method for obtaining an "A" license is how cost effective it is, especially as you're first starting out. Because your first six jumps are done at a lower altitude, the plane consumes less fuel and runs for shorter times which allows us to pass the savings on to you. This allows you to get a feel for the sport without spending a lot of money compared to other methods.

The IAD training method is a unique, special, proven and very effective method that's not taught at many dropzones. It's an excellent way to get your "A" license and begin your skydiving career! To learn more about becoming a licensed skydiver, click here.
