So you’re starving for freefall and ready to become your own skydiver? AWESOME! But before we haul you up to 13,000′ and toss you out of the plane alone, we’ve got to expand your growing skydive knowledge. Luckily for you, Kamloops Skydivers have over 50 years of teaching people how it’s done (and we’re pretty darn good at it). We’ve got plenty of JM’s, SSI’s and C1’s to help you along the way.
