Learn to Skydive with UK Parachuting Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) Courses
The AFF course is based on eight levels of accomplishment (normally one skydive at each level) and is designed to take place over a full week or broken down over a few weekends. Given good weather, the course can sometimes be completed in as little as three days. After graduating from the course, you perform a further ten consolidation jumps, guided by your instructors, to practise the skills you have learned. You will then be awarded ‘Category Eight’ – your first International Skydiving Licence!
The course commences with a full day of ground tuition with your instructor. This covers the theory and practice of skydiving and the use of your parachute system. You will learn safety procedures, how the equipment operates, how to exit the aircraft with your instructors, how to maintain control and communicate in free fall, how to initiate the opening of the main parachute, and how to steer to the landing area and land safely. Before jumping, you will practise all the procedures for both your skydive and the parachute descent until your instructors are completely satisfied with your abilities.
You then take the aircraft right ‘to the top’ – around 13,000 feet – and, with one instructor at each side, you exit the aircraft and put your new skills to the test!
With the maximum amount of time in free fall and the very best instructors at your side (these guys have logged at least 5,000 skydives each), you’ll get the ultimate experience and the maximum achievement.
Once you’ve deployed your own parachute (yes, on your first jump!) you’ll fly it safely back to the landing area yourself and meet your instructors for a debrief and a 20 minute briefing for your next skydive.
With our full-time experienced instructors it’s possible to complete all 8 AFF levels in as little as three days. Yes – that’s you in the air, skydiving by yourself, in just THREE days!
We also offer an option to have a Free Fall Photographer with you on Levels 1 to 7, providing a video record for you to keep.
