Learn to skydive solo, we will teach you the skills required the complete the entire Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Course. All equipment and professional instruction included. This course can be completed in 5 days if weather permits.
Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) is the most widely used training method in civilian skydiving around the world. AFF allows the student to experience free fall from the very first jump. It is comprised of 9 stages – with each jump, you learn new skills.
It all starts with ground training, where we get you ready to jump out of a plane. A full day of training around equipment, freefall, parachute control & landing, and dealing with malfunctions. This course provides the foundational knowledge for the entire AFF program. You are now ready for Stage 1. Time to experience your first freefall skydive. You will wear and fly your own parachute back to the ground!
Stages 1 to 3 jumps are made with two instructors. We will introduce you to the feeling of freefall, maintaining height awareness, the basics of controlling your stability and movement in the air, flying your parachute and of course landing it safely.
Stages 4 to 8 jumps are made with one instructor. Time to refine those freefall skills and prepare you for skydiving with other people, which is where the fun really begins! In these stages you will get to do fun things like back loops, turns and tracking (high speed horizontal movement.)
Stage 9 you will leave your instructor in the plane! This is normally your first skydive without an instructor. You have graduate AFF!Each jump will be followed by a thorough debrief of your skydive, usually with video (that you can keep.). Briefings for subsequent stages take from 10 - 30 minutes.
It is possible to complete the entire course in 5 days or less, if weather permits.
