Denmark's leading course in solo skydiving

At Dropzone Denmark, we have prepared a unique solo skydiving course based on experience and statistics from all over the world. It is designed to give you all the knowledge and skills you need to safely jump out of a plane for the first time alone.

Therefore, you do not need to have made a tandem skydive first. Everything will be gone through with you thouroughly before your first solo skydive.  Both with theory and physical excercises, so that you are completely aware of what is going to happen, once you are in the air. We will go through some scenarios that will prepare you for when things go according to plan, but also teach you what to do in situations when things go wrong.

Our skydive training is built around the AFF principle (Accelerated Freefall). This means that your first jump is from full height, 15,000 ft, where you release the parachute yourself and experience freefall from your first skydive. This is in contrast to the static line education that is used elsewhere in Denmark. Where you start at a low altitude, the parachute is released automatically when you jump, so you don't get any free fall during your first jump.

The advantage of the AFF training is that you have more time in the air and therefore learn much faster. You also experience a full skydive on your first jump.

What does a solo skydive require?

Regardless of whether you only want one solo skydive, or whether you want to be a certified skydiver, the same solo skydive course is where you start.

It is a common misconception that you must have tried a tandem jump before you can skydive solo. That is not the case. It is undeniably a good preparation, but you can easily take your first skydive as a solo jump. You don't even need to have flown in a plane before. All it takes is desire, will and courage! OK, it also requires you to be at least 16 years old and not have any health challenges that could prevent you from skydiving. But that's about it!

Our solo skydiving course is structured in such a way that you learn everything you need to perform a safe skydive alone.

If you wish to continue with the education, and possibly become a certified skydiver, you are already well on your way. But, as mentioned before, it's not a requirement. You can easily just jump once with our solo course.

If you are in doubt as to whether you can do a solo jump, you are always welcome to contact us by email: or phone: 22 40 11 17

What is the price for a skydiving course?

You can choose to jump solo just once, or continue on your skydiving journey and become a licenced skydiver. The price for your skydiving course is therefore very dependant on your needs and what you want to get out of the course.

How does a solo skydive work?

Day 1: You arrive ready for 4-5 hours of theoretical instruction, where you learn everything about the parachute and the scenarios you may encounter.

Here you will also get the practical training you need, where you for example practice all the movements you need to use during your skydive.

Day 2: On the day of your jump, you start with 1 hour of practical training, where you practice jumping out of the plane and pulling the parachute yourself. Here there is ofcourse also room for some last questions before your jump.

Now it is go time! You jump from a height of 15,000 ft. together with your instructors. The instructors stay nearby to make sure everything goes as it should during freefall, which lasts for approx. 50 seconds. You release the parachute yourself and then you have an instructor who coaches you down safely through a speaker in your helmet.

When you have debriefed the jump with your instructor and written it in your log book, you are ready for AFF level 2. It only takes 20 minutes of additional training.

Do you need to do a tandem jump before you can do a solo skydive?

Well, the short answer is: no.

It is a general misconception that you must do a tandem jump before you can do a solo skydive. That is just not the case. Although it undeniably can be a good preparation, you can easily do your first skydive as a solo jump.  You don't even need to have flown in an airplane before. All it takes is a desire, will and courage!

Our solo skydiving course is structured in a way so you learn everything you need to perform a safe solo skydive.

If you then want to continue with the education and become a fully certified skydiver, after your first jump, you are already well underway. It is not required though, so you can easily just make the one jump with our solo course.

All the info about your solo skydive

Find everything you need to know in the various tabs below. If you have any further questions, you are welcome to call +45 22 40 11 17.


To do a solo skydive you must be 16 years old. If you are under 18 years of age, you must bring a signature from one of your parents or guardians. The signature is filled out on arrival at the reception or you can print and bring our signature form.

Weight and physic

To skydive, you must weigh max. 110 kg. incl. clothes and shoes. It's not physically demanding as such, but you must be reasonably flexible so that you can arch in freefall and move your arms freely above your head. If you have had a shoulder injury, please talk to us first.

Skydiving is a big experience and it can be very mentally tiring, so it's important that you are fresh and well rested.

Time and arrival

The time you have booked is the starting time for the theory. Please note that it usually takes 5 hours incl. breaks. It is possible to buy dinner during the course. The practical part and the jump itself takes place on another day. Typically the day after the theory.

We usually start the practical part at 7 am at weekends. On weekdays it's usually at 2 pm. We strongly recommend that you set aside the whole day for the jump.


Usually both of your instructors will film your jump. The purpose of the video is a better debriefing of your jump and it's therefore not intended as an actual video product. You are welcome to get the video afterwards.

For safety reasons, the Danish Transport Agency's law states that you must have 150 jumps before you are allowed to take a camera with you. You may therefore not bring your own camera.


Since it's an international license you are acquiring, just as we have both Danish and foreign instructors, much of the education will take place in English. If you are not comfortable with English, contact us in advance so that we can find a solution.


The theory usually ends at 10 pm and we usually start at 7 am the next day, so we recommend that you stay and spend the night.

A night in our bunkhouse costs 125 DKK incl. bed linen and a towel. There are 4 and 8 person rooms with bunk beds. It's also possible to buy breakfast in the café.

Please book your accommodation in advance by contacting us at info@

Can we jump together?

With the country's largest and fastest aircraft, we have room for as many as 20 jumpers at a time. With that said, there are many things that have to come together on a solo jump. Therefore you cannot expect to jump at the same time as your friends.

Friends and family

Your friends and family are of course welcome to come and watch you jump. While they wait, they can enjoy a cold soft drink or a bite to eat from our delicious café and then you will land just a few meters from them.

You just need to be aware that we cannot guarantee at which time you will jump.


We have a delicious café at the dropzone. It will always be possible to buy drinks, snacks and light meals. There will always be an opportunity for dinner during the theory and breakfast on the day of the jump.


The weather can have a big impact on the safety of a skydive. Therefore, as a new skydiver, there are greater restrictions on what weather you may jump in. In a country like Denmark, this means that it can be difficult to get into the air at times.

We are ready when the weather is right, but it also requires you to prioritize stopping by when the conditions are right.


Bring practical clothes that you can move around in and closed shoes that fit firmly on your feet. Sandals and shoes with heels are not allowed.

It gets colder the higher we go up, so bring extra layers that you can put on if necessary. Better several thin layers than one thick one. The rule of thumb is one extra layer compared to what you want to wear outside. We provide gloves and a jump suit.

You can jump with contact lenses and glasses as long as the glasses are not too big.

Postponement and rebooking

A skydive is dependent on many things including the weather, the aircraft and the equipment. We understand that you would want to jump at the exact chosen time, but sometimes it's not possible.

On a solo jump, you do not have a fixed time booked for the jump. We will be in ongoing dialogue with you about when to show up and then we will get you in the air as soon as possible.

If more than one month passes between your course and your jump, then we need to refresh some of the theory.


When you jump with us, you are only covered by a third-party insurance by us. You (the 1st party) must be covered by your own insurance in the event of an injury. Some insurance companies require you to have a dangerous sport insurance. Talk with your insurance company before you jump.

Gift card

The validity of a gift card from us is 30 months (2.5 years). If you have booked with a gift card, we need the codes on the gift card, so bring either a physical or digital copy on the day.

If you have a gift card from TrueStory, you can book the jump on their website. If you have a gift card from another provider, contact us at

Be aware that if your jump is postponed, it does not extend the validity of your gift card, so use it in good time.
