I want to become a real skydiver!
DThe beginner course costs ~ €500. However, you should always compare the benefits that are included (how many jumps, the fee for hiring a parachute, training material, etc.). Example: at the skydiving club Westerstede you pay €500 for a beginner course which includes 6 jumps with automatic canopy opening, the lending fee, the Absetzkosten (I have no idea how to translate this one), glasses, a logbook (where you record your jumps), a packing belt (for packing your parachute) and the training material. Each successive jump runs from €14-28 plus the lending fee of €4 per jump (Note! Some clubs or skydiving schools take up to €20 per jump). All in all this can amount to €1000 until you finally get your licence.
How much does the equipment cost?
New equipment costs ~ €5.500. There is
a used equipment market which can save you loads of money.
Depending on the market situation, equipment age or by lucky
chance you can get the complete equipment already for €2.750.
You have to bargain for at least €2.500. Generally, you may
buy it all at once or a piece at a time.
