Yes, we still do static line line courses at Fallschirmsport Marl.
First 10 jumps 695 (includes 2 days ground school + gear + tickets)
Next 10 jumps 475.(includes gear + tickets)


The first course this year starts on 31 March.

 I'm surprised you have to front up with the money for 10 jumps when you don't know whether you will continue after jump number one, until you have done it.

Is that normal?. It doesn't seem a good way to encourage people to try it. There is no way I would have ever skydived if they asked me to pay up front for 10 jumps....

Thats good. Thanks.

Unfortunately my Deutsch is not good enough to read the website properly.

Do you know if they will be operating this weekend 24/25 March?. I might go and have a look at the DZ....

As the website they are jumping this weekend. But maybe you can call them before you drive there. I cant tell you more, because Ive never been there.

...according to their web page they offer a 1 jump test course for 195EUR. My club in southern Bavaria offers a 2 jump "Schnupperkurs" for I think 280EUR...which get acknowledged to the overall course price if you carry on afterwards.

cheers
Uwe

Spent a couple of hours on Saturday at the DZ. It seems to be a well run, friendly DZ. One of the better ones I've seen around the world.

Your friend may also want to check out "Bad Lippspringe" near Paderborn. It's run by the british military (Rhine Army Parachute Association), but looks&feels pretty much like any civilian DZ. They're friendly, professional, have a Caravan, offer SL courses, and have a huge landing area. Don't know about prices.

Check out this unofficial website or this facebook page.

Yeah thanks, I know about Bad Lippspringe, some of my jump mates from the early 70's spent time posted there. One of my ex students jumps there, and also at Soest.

Marl seems pretty good, and he's already booked in for their next course.

Blue skies.
