The Accelerated Training Program is the latest approach for training students the skills and techniques of Skydiving. The cost of this course is $1000. This includes the seven levels of training and jumps the student will progress through. The unique feature offered by this program includes the student and Instructor making each jump together from 13,000 feet, about a 50 second freefall. Not only will the student learn aircraft procedures, but also the freefall body position and relative work (skydiving with other enthusiasts) skills will be introduced and mastered under direct supervision of your Instructor. This is a fast paced program and the student will complete this program within 2 to 3 consecutive days.  This course is offered during the week (Monday through Friday) by appointment only.  If repeat jumps are necessary to complete the program, it will cost $110 and $135 depending on the level.

Plan to stay all day for the program. Registration is at 9:00 am for the program. We do not accept personal checks but we do accept M/C, Visa, and ATM etc.  The Center uses all modern equipment and training techniques. The price for all jumps includes the equipment, plane ride, all instruction and the jump. Wear loose comfortable clothing, tennis shoes and bring food. After each jump you will receive an individual critique and entry in your own personal logbook. We are open 7 days a week, year round and jump weather permitting. For either program it is to your benefit to complete the course in a timely manner and continue on into skydiving. Feel free to call with any further questions.

- Our Location -

Driving Instructions: The Parachute Center is located south of Sacramento on the "west side" of Highway 99.   From I-80, I-50, or I-5, take Highway 99 south about 27 miles from the interchange in Sacramento. Go past Elk Grove and Galt. About 4 miles south of Galt, you will need to take the Jahant Exit off the Highway and go south on the access road (on the Jahant exit you turn left at the stop sign, then straight at the next stop sign, then at the T intersection which is the 3rd stop sign turn left) and the access road will follow around the edge of the Lodi Airport. The Parachute Center is located on the west side of Hwy. 99 on the south side of the Airport. Follow the Parachute signs and we will be located on the right side.

If you are traveling north on I-5 take Hwy 4 east in Stockton to Highway 99. The Parachute Center is located north of Stockton and Lodi. Exit at Peltier Road, then turn right at the stop sign. Take another right at the next stop sign which will take you over the freeway you were just on.  You are now on the the west side of the freeway. Take the next immediate right as soon as you cross the overpass (there is no stop sign at this turn) then proceed north along the west side of the freeway for 1/2 mile. You will see the Parachute Center on the left.

If you are Hwy 12 go east from the Bay Area to Lodi. Then take Hwy 99 North and follow the instructions from above.

Other independent business operators offer videography, photography and parachute packing services at the Parachute Center.
