Flight training is generally divided into two sections; Ground School and Flight Training. They can be completed at the same time or you can complete the ground school first followed then by the flight training.

Michael and Mercedes are professionals driven by a passion for teaching and a deep lover for the sport of Skydiving. Every year our instructors attend one or more of Xcelskydiving’s training courses.
