SL (Static Line) beginner course
Static Line jumps are made from an altitude of 1,5 km, and your parachute opens automatically immediately after jumping out of the plane. A modern steerable ram-air parachute is used on all jumps.
A Static Line jump is a good opportunity to make your first acquintance with skydiving. If a more serious interest develops, it is easy to move on to AFF jumps and to freefall.
The price for a Static Line course with 1 jump is 149€, subsequent jumps are 59€ each.
NB! Special offer for members of the Estonian Defense League:
SL beginner course + 1 jump – 110€. For groups starting from 15 people. Please contact us at email@example.com to schedule the extra course.

Courses in 2022
The first beginners’ course in Estonian is scheduled on the 10th of May and from there on every Tuesday until the 13th of September (with the exception of the Midsummer week, 21st of June). There will be two courses held in Tartu (also in Estonian), on the 14th of June and 26th of July.
Beginners’ courses in English are held once a month on Fridays (May 27th, June 17th, July 15th, August 12th and September 9th).
Before the jump
The course begins with a theory course (ca 4 hours, taking place each Tuesday from May to September from 6 pm to 10 pm at Skydive Estonia’s club rooms at Türi st 10c, Tallinn). The theory course is followed by an exam and a practical exercise (ca 2 hours, taking place each Thursday at the same location, or at a different time by prior agreement with your instructor).
The courses held in Tartu (in Estonian) will take place on the 14th of June and 26th of July from 6pm to 10 pm, address Tähe 3 (Korporatsioon Rotalia rooms). Students from Tartu can take the written exam and perform practical excercises at the airfield during their chosen weekend.
On a Static Line jump, the parachute opens immediately after exiting the airplane. A modern steerable ram-air parachute is used on all jumps. A Static Line jump is a good opportunity to make your first acquintance with skydiving.
After the jump
After the first jump, you may continue jumping Static Line if you wish. If you develop an interest in skydiving, it would make sense to transfer to the AFF programme, which is possible after a short additional theory exam and briefing at the airfield.
