What are the different types of skydiving in Australia?

1. Tandem Skydiving: Tandem Skydiving in Australia is skydiving with a partner. Your partner will essentially be your instructor who will connect to you via a harness and will guide you through the whole experience of jumping from an exit, free fall, to piloting the canopy before landing in the ground. Tandem Skydiving is the best and most popular option for amateurs.

2. Static Line Skydiving: If you are an amateur who wants to go for solo skydiving, you can opt for static line skydiving. In this skydiving, the onus of opening the parachute will not be with you. Instead, it will be operated by a static line attached to the parachute. The static line will open automatically as you will jump out of the aircraft. You will not be able to enjoy a freefall but will be able to glide through the air on your own till you reach the ground.

3. Accelerated Freefall Skydiving: If you are keen to get a skydiving license, you should try Accelerated Freefall Skydiving. During this skydiving experience, you will be accompanied by two instructors who will guide you through the jump and will also teach you to do it independently. After a few sessions, you will be given a license for solo diving.

4. Solo Skydiving: Once you get a skydiving license, you can go for solo skydiving where you can enjoy the complete experience all by yourself.
