Once you want to excel this experience go for an AFF course. Such a one week course ranges from USD 1’500 to USD 2’500. Continue to practice on weekends in any of the many skydiving schools until you get your license. Thereafter you will buy your own equipment which costs about USD 3’000 to USD 6’000. Single jumps cost, as a licensed skydiver, range from USD 15 to USD 45 per jump, depending on the altitude you jump. Happy are those who dream dreams and are willing to pay the price to see them come true.
Today I have 11’051 jumps. In average I still do about 200-250 jumps per year. Every minute of my leisure time I spend with my competition team and with my two sons somewhere around the globe on a drop zone. And most importantly, my wife Caroline supports us in all these activities – if your partner does not stand behind you, there is no way you can practice so intensively.
