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 w/ends. Given good weather, the course may sometimes be completed in as little as 3 days. After graduating from the Course, you perform a further ten consolidation jumps, guided by your Instructors, practising the skills you have learned, after which you will be awarded 'Category Eight' - and 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 freefall, how to initiate the opening of the main parachute, and how to steer down 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.
Then you'll take the aircraft right ‘to the top’ - around 13,000 feet - and with one instructor at each side you'll exit the aircraft and put your new skills to the test!
With the maximum amount of time in freefall, and the very best instructors at your side (these guys have done over 7000 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 de-brief and a 20 minute brief for your next skydive.
With our full-time experienced instructors it's possible to complete all 8 AFF Levels in as little as 3 days! Yes - that's you in the air, skydiving by yourself, in 3 days!
We also offer an option to have a Freefall Photographer with you on Levels 1 to 7, providing a video record for you to keep.
