Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is simply the fastest way to learn to skydive. The course is designed for the individual who wants to progress in the sport with the aim to becoming a qualified Skydiver. Our team of British Parachute Association AFF instructors have over 31,000 skydives logged so you are in great hands!
Our AFF Courses start at 8am where you will meet your instructor. Before you can make your first skydive – we will teach you how! You will receive a minimum of 6 hours ground tuition, covering the safety aspects, the equipment you will use, how to exit the aircraft, control in freefall and how to fly and land your parachute. There is then a multiple choice test that you will be expected to pass. On completion of the ground tuition, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to make you a safe and confident first time skydiver. Your jump will then take place on the next jumpable day.
Your first jump will take place from an altitude of 15,000 feet. You will exit the plane accompanied by two instructors who will guide you in freefall as you accelerate to 120 mph, you will freefall up to 2 miles before you deploy your own parachute at 5,000 feet above the ground. You will then fly your parachute (with radio assistance) as you glide in to land.
A DVD option is available on your AFF jump, please return to the welcome page for more information on having the most exhilarating moment of your life captured on DVD!
