This varies from drop-zone to drop-zone, depending on the method used to get you through the license program. We use the AFF (Accelerated Free Fall) program, we use the wind tunnel as a training aid and then usually have you making solo skydives by jump number 8. You need at least 25 jumps to be eligible for your first skydiving license, your “A” license. Once you have your A license, you are certified to jump at any drop-zone around the World.
