Skydiving is a sport. All sports are subject to certain limitations and unfortunately our limitations are weather and
conditions at the airfield. We always strive to have our students jump the same day they are trained but we can't change the weather
or airfield conditions (example: soft runway) and we can't bend the rules because it's not as safe.
When you are setting your plans to come for the course, realize that the weather may not be in your favour, but still
take the course because you've already set aside the time and it WILL take the better part of that day.
If the weather is socked in, the only way to deal with it is by using common sense. You can come back another day or wait. Waiting
for weather is just something that happens on a DZ, so bring something to do... a book, hackey sack, etc. You want to jump, we want you to jump.
Once you've completed your course, you've got 60 days to make your first jump before you have to do any retraining (approx. 1 hour).
You can make the jump at any time of year. Now you can pick a nice day, come up in the morning, put yourself on a load and have the whole day to enjoy the experience.
