Accelerated Free Fall Course

AFF Course Description

    The Accelerated Freefall (AFF) method is the most progressive method of skydiving instruction in use today. If you want to learn to skydive, and become a licensed jumper, this course is for you.

    Due to the intensity of a first skydive, we suggest that you do at least one tandem jump before entering this skydiving course.

    After attending the Canopy Flight Training class, you will make two instructional tandem skydives under the supervision of certified instructor. You will then attend an Accelerated Free Fall class, and your next skydive will be made solo, under the supervision of our instructors.

    All of our instructors are certified and rated by the United States Parachute Association and have logged thousands of jumps. Each class and jump is priced individually, so you can go at your own pace. All learning objectives must be met before you are cleared for the next level.
