Skydiving can be an expensive sport, but that's not to say that it's unaffordable for the average student.
To qualify as an experienced jumper, it will cost at least £750, but there is no rush to get this completed provided that you stay current (jump once a month).
For some people, skydiving can even be a self-sustainable sport. Georgie, the club's president learnt to pack parachutes early in her skydiving career and got signed off on a number of different kits. A packer is paid £4.00 to pack a parachute and can pack up to five an hour - allowing packers to earn up to £150.00 on a busy day.
It takes some practice to get good at packing, but this money is paid in cash and can be used to fund your jumps or your bills - whatever you need the money for.
Finally, the main cost in skydiving is the parachute itself - and as the University lends these to students for free (and shares other Universities' kits too), this cuts out some of the sport's major costs.
