Skydive the Wasatch IAD Program

Time to kick off your tandem training wheels? Our IAD (Instructor Assisted Deployment) Program is designed to put you on the fast-track to being able to skydive solo. 

USPA issues four skydiving licenses, A through D, indicating progressive levels of skill and accomplishment. A skydiver is considered a student until issued a license.

In this Instructor Assisted Deployment course (IAD), your USPA Licensed instructor will guide you through ground training and training/solo jumps to help you achieve your A-License.

Your progression will move from the instructor being responsible for deployment, to solo deployment, to freefall and subsequent solo deployment. One of the primary allures of the IAD system is that it is a less expensive entry method into solo skydiving than a similar AFF program would be.

Skydive the Wasatch is implementing an IAD Program during the 2021 season. Check back soon for more info!
