2 Skydive Spaceland Skydiver Training Program Overview Welcome to Skydive Spaceland s Skydiver Training Program the most complete, progressive skydiving training method in use. United States Parachute Association (USPA) instructors who have been skydiving for almost 30 years (some of whom have more than 10,000 skydives) have combined their extensive experience and knowledge to create this program, which graduates more than twice as many skydiving students as any other skydiving school in the U.S. We combine the latest skydiving technology with proven techniques that allow a broad group of people to excel by combining safety, fun and education in a non-competitive, relaxed environment. daniel angulo We teach you how to skydive in several steps, breaking up the information into focused, easily understood sessions in which you can progress at your own rate. Exit from up to 14,000 feet and perform exciting maneuvers at 120 mph while your personal instructor flies with you and shoots video for FREE. Your instructor will use the video to debrief your skydive and landing to maximize your learning curve. Enjoy a 4-6 minute canopy descent and soft, on-target landing, assisted by your instructor via radio. Once you have your United States Parachute Association A license, you can skydive anywhere in the world. 2 Skydive Spaceland u Houston, Texas: u Clewiston, Fla.: u

Hackey main deployment handles are located on the bottom of the container. Skydive Spaceland u Houston, Texas: u Clewiston, Fla.: u 3

4 Parachute Equipment Your skydiving career starts with two tandem skydives. Our tandem parachute rigs (above) are state-of-the-art United Parachute Technologies Sigma containers with Icarus tandem main canopies, Performance Designs reserves, and safety devices including reserve static lines, Skyhooks, and Cypres-2 Automatic Activation Devices. We keep several solo freefall rigs (below) in each canopy size, with harness sizes to fit all body sizes and types. Rig colors coordinate with parachute colors to indicate parachute size at a glance. Full-time riggers keep our equipment in topnotch shape in our dedicated rigging loft. 4 Skydive Spaceland u Houston, Texas: u Clewiston, Fla.: u

5 Training Facilities/Aircraft Malfunction Junction training area with four standing harness simulators allows instructors to train four students simultaneously on pull, emergency management, and canopy flight procedures with complete, adjustable, realistic handle and reserve static line setups. Skydive Spaceland enjoys multiple bases of operation for our popular Skydiver Training Program we train skydiving students just south of Houston, Texas in Rosharon and in Clewiston, Florida, just south of Lake Okeechobee in the south central region. Unlike many weekend skydiving centers, both Skydive Spaceland locations operate all week long and feature full-time instructors and support staff along with fast, high-capacity turbine aircraft capable of handling the high volume of flights needed for our STP students to complete their training quickly. Our Super Caravan and Super Otter aircraft (featured below) are our primary jump ships, but our Super Skyvan tailgate aircraft are available for military training contracts. Learn to skydive by yourself or with 20 of your closest friends... either way we re ready for you! The opposite side of Malfunction Junction includes two life-size side-door aircraft mockups, with inner floater bars, for training different aircraft exit positions. Primary aircraft: Super Caravan side-door aircraft, used mostly for civilian skydiving operations. The Supervan carries 18 jumpers to altitude and completes 4 loads/hour. Super Skyvan also available. Also available: Super Twin Otter side-door aircraft, used primarily for civilian skydiving operations. The Super Otter carries 23 jumpers to altitude and completes 3.5 loads/hour. Skydive Spaceland u Houston, Texas: u Clewiston, Fla.: u 5

6 Last But Never Least... Our Staff! At Skydive Spaceland, we are fortunate to have a highly experienced and skilled full-time staff, many of whom have tens of thousands of skydives apiece. Many of our instructors have been trained in our methods from the ground up by The Ratings Center, which is based at our Houston location. Our staff takes pride and ownership in our training program and is continually taking initiative to make it even better. We look forward to flying with you! 6 Skydive Spaceland u Houston, Texas: u Clewiston, Fla.: u

7 Get Your License in a Week! Did you know you can get your basic skydiving license in as little as a week? At Skydive Spaceland you can! Blitz through your training in just a few short days or take all the time you need; either way, purchasing our allinclusive A license package is the most cost-effective way to complete the Skydiver Training Program. It saves you more than $400! You ll also get perks such as instructor priority and free crash space in the bunkhouse if you re training at our Houston location. Weather permitting, our A in a week schedule is as follows. Check out these links or call us at (Houston) or 800-U-GO-JUMP (Florida) for more info!

We ll start teaching you how to pack a main parachute at sunset. Day 5: Friday: Skydiving On Your Own: 5 Solo Skydives 7 am: Time to fly on your own!
