Next year I'm taking 5 months off work as I'll be studying full time in that period. Today I realised that it would be an amazing opportunity to do things which I've wanted to do for a while but haven't had the time to do because of work commitments. The first thing that came to mind was skydiving...
I've had a look online and the prices are something around £2000 for a 3 day course with 18 jumps to obtain a UK parachute license.
Has anybody got any experience in obtaining a license for this? What competencies need to be met? (I'm fit & healthy, normal BMI etc)
Also, once you have a license.. I know membership to the BPA is around £120 / year but how are jumps organised? Does one have to join a local club or what? How much do days out in clubs set members back? (not sure how it works!)
Another thought is that I'm waiting to do my fitness tests for the Navy Reserves so perhaps once I'm in (I'll pass the tests...) then I could sort something out with them. Not sure if they do anything like this tho.
