Overview of AFF, our advanced sky diving programme
AFF stands for Accelerated Freefall and is the quickest way to become a fully
qualified skydiver. Under the conventional static line progression system the
average student takes 25 jumps spread out over a number of months before
achieving solo freefall. With AFF, due to one-to-one tuition and the fact that
you freefall from your first jump, most students complete the course in eight
jumps (often in as little as a week) and the following information will show you
how easy this really is...
What does the accelerated free fall sky diving course involve?
There are eight levels in the AFF course with each level aiming to teach you a
new sky diving skill. Most people require only one jump on each level but
occasionally if the instructors think that you have not fully mastered all the
required techniques you may have to repeat the level again (at reduced cost).
The following table shows you what is achieved at each level:
Before you go anywhere near the aircraft you will receive a thorough six hours
ground training teaching you the basics of skydiving together with a thorough
explanation of what you will be doing on your first jump. During the jump itself
you will be accompanied by two instructors who will communicate with you in
mid-air with hand signals and when you come to land you will be guided in by an
instructor on the ground through a radio fitted in your helmet.
Level 2 - 3
On levels two and three you will receive yet more ground training as you begin
to learn all the basic techniques of body flight. You will once again be
accompanied by two instructors on each jump and will practise minor turns,
altitude awareness and forward flight. Again you will land solo under the
guidance of an instructor on the ground with a radio.
Level 4 - 7
Levels four to seven take you through the more advanced skydiving techniques as
you learn spotting (directing the plane to the exit point), solo exits, loops
and recovery from planned unstable body positions. On these levels you will be
accompanied by one instructor landing under the direction of a ground instructor
with a radio.
By the final level you will exit, freefall and land solo whilst your instructor
watches your technique. Upon passing this level you will be qualified to jump
solo at any AFF approved centre across the UK but will not receive your Category
8 licence (allowing you to jump solo from any non-AFF centre across the UK)
until you have completed 10 consolidation jumps.
You do not have to be extremely talented in any way to be a skydiver - over 300
people take the course and qualify every year. When you have decided you want to
take the up the opportunity of a lifetime give us a call or just book online for
your chance to become a freefall skydiver!
