As the name suggests night jumps are skydives performed in the night, in the dark. The skill-level required to execute these jumps correctly and safely is high. Which is why they can only be performed by licensed skydivers who hold a USPA B-License or higher.
In addition to a lot of experience, night jumps also require special night jump equipment, like a lighted altimeter and specific night-vision goggles. A flashlight is also a pretty handy tool to have in your kit.
Those who would like to skydive in the night, must first learn to skydive solo. And you can do that by signing up for the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) First Jump Course at our Desert Campus DZ.
