Accelerated Freefall Course (AFF)

Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is a training system for those who are really serious about becoming a Skydiver in a short time. AFF is an intensive course, so you will be in a small group or possible on your own with your instructors, ensuring individual attention. The programme is termed ‘Accelerated’ because the learning process is faster than alternative training systems.

Skydiving Course Schedule

Level One Training

Day One

Your journey to becoming a licensed skydiver starts with your training for your AFF Level 1 skydive. The training for your Level 1 skydive consists of an all-day ground school, and jumping with two instructors from 15,000ft. This is usually split over 2 days. On day 1 you will arrive at the dropzone at 8am to meet your instructor.

During your ground school training you will be introduced to the parachute equipment, body positioning, deploying your parachute, landing your parachute and emergency drills. The day will then end with a written examination and the instructor will then update you as to when day 2 will take place.

You will then get kitted up ready for your Level 1 skydive (weather dependent). Your level 1 skydive will consist of Jumping from 15,000ft with two instructors holding you on either side. You will demonstrate a stable body position, monitor your altitude and pull your own parachute, then land it yourself.

Progression Levels

Following on from instructor recommendation after level 1, levels will consist of:

Level 2 – 3 – Still with two instructors, they will start letting you go in freefall until you’re really skydiving by yourself whilst in air coaching you.
Level 4 – 5 – Now you will only need one instructor with you. You will learn how to turn and control your heading (direction).
Level 6 – You will be exiting without an instructor holding you although they will still jump with you. You will learn backloops and tracking (moving forward in the air).
Level 7 – You will show all the skills you’ve learnt including turns, backloops and tracking.
Level 8 – This consists of jumping from 6000ft with a short delay before pulling your parachute, to simulate an unplanned exit.
Consolidation Jump – You will need to complete a minimum of 10 consolidation jumps. Here you can jump out of the plane without an instructor and have the freedom to try things in freefall. After all these jumps are completed you will be an A Licence skydiver.

Training Period

Full brief and de-brief on each level will be assisted by instructors’ video.

Due to its intensive nature AFF is at its best when you can commit a continuous period of time to the whole training. Substantial breaks in training can often impact your performance and progression, which can raise additional training/re-jump costs. We require you attend at least once every 4 weeks. As skydiving is weather dependent, for student jumpers the weather conditions have to be a certain requirement. This can delay jumps.
