Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)
What is AFF?
Accelerated Free Fall or AFF is an intensive course aimed at the individual who has decided to get the fast track training required to become a Skydiver. After a full day of intense training you will be taken to heights of up to 13,500 feet, where two very experienced instructors will exit the aircraft with you, giving you instructions via hand signals, whilst in free fall. Please Note. The Jump normally takes place the day following the ground school therefore you need to allow a minimim of 2 days to complete this course.
You will open the parachute at around 5,500 feet and fly it to the ground. You will have radio communication to help you whilst under the canopy.
AFF Course Levels
The course is structured over 8 levels. You need to pass each level before you can progress to the next one. This course is by far the most intense way of learning to free-fall via a very steep learning curve.
This information is for use as a guide only. Depending on your ability and based on your progression, your instructor may slightly alter what you do on each level. In essence, each session will include what you did on the previous jump including the new skill being learnt. This applies to all levels apart from level 8.
Solo exit and pull stable within 10 seconds.
