Overview of AFF, our advanced sky diving programme
AFF stands for Accelerated Freefall and is the quickest way to become a fully
qualified parachutist. 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 full 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 shows what is achieved on level 1:
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. Your training will usually
take place mid-week with the jump happening on the weekend.
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
