Start the way the experts jump, by doing a Solo Jump when you jumpon your own, or you can make a Tandem Skydive, where you jump attached to a highly experienced Tandem Master.
The Irish Parachute Club is open at weekends and public holidays all year round so you can book a skydiving course for any weekend.
Training for Solo Jumps takes place on Saturdays, the course commencing at 9:00a.m. During the time of brighter evenings you will possibly make your jump the same day as you train.
