Instructor Assisted Deployment

IAD stands for "Instructor-Assisted Deployment" and is a method of training where the instructor initiates deployment of the student's parachute when the student jumps from the plane. IAD is a good method for those that think they might want to become licensed skydivers, or for folks that want to take more responsibility on their first jump. The IAD ground school class is usually around 4-6 hours. After the course is complete, you will gear up and fly to an altitude of 4000 feet. Once you exit the aircraft your parachute will be deployed after a short 2-3 second fall. You will then fly and land it!
