Ground School

Learn to Skydive

For those who want to take up skydiving as a sport and become licensed skydivers, Skydive San Marcos offers structured training based on the USPA Integrated Student Program – the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Program.

To begin the AFF program, students must first complete a Ground School Training session. Ground School sessions last approximately 6 hours. Once completed, students can then begin making their category jumps and progressing through the AFF program.

Ground School Training must be pre-booked and paid for in advance – please call 512-488-2214 to book your spot in an upcoming training session.
