the independent route to your skydiving license

ACCELERATED FREE FALL (AFF)

Accelerated Free Fall is a training program developed by the USPA to allow a person to become a licensed skydiver in a structured but slightly more aggressive method. You are not required to do a tandem jump prior to beginning the AFF program, however we recommend experiencing a tandem first or the ATP Program for most people. 

A 4-6 hour ground school and a high level of demonstrated aptitude are required prior to being approved for your first supervised solo. 2 AFF instructors will accompany you on your first solo skydive. They will provide in-air instruction with learned hand signals during freefall. You will be wearing your own rig and jump unattached to an instructor, deploying and landing the canopy yourself!

This program is designed so you have the option to pay as you go (per jump) OR prepay and save.

  • General Info
