AFF COURSES

Our Work

THE UK’S SPECIALISTS IN TEACHING FIRST TIME JUMPERS ON OUR ACCELERATED FREE FALL (AFF) PROGRAM

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 our full-time experienced skydive 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 accommodation on site whilst you learn to skydive from just £5 per night. Ask for further details book@ukparachuting.co.uk

LEVELS 2 AND 3

A skydive with two instructors and they will be able to give you a bit more freedom and both should be able to release you on the Level 3 jump. You need to show us that you can monitor your altitude, hold a good body position, control your orientation in the sky and deploy your own parachute before moving onto the next levels.

AFF LEVELS 4 AND 5

Now that you’ve shown us you’ve learnt the basics you only need one instructor with you. On these jumps you’ll practice controlling your heading or direction, starting and stopping turns, progressing onto 360 degree turns on Level 5.

AFF LEVEL 6

For the first time, you will be jumping out of the plane without an instructor holding onto you. Level 6 gives you the chance to demonstrate you can regain stability by performing a back loop with recovery and then practice tracking, an important skill that allows you to move forwards which is essential once you start jumping with other people.

If all goes to plan your instructor won’t need do hold onto you at all on this jump, but they will be right there just in case you need a hand.

AFF LEVEL 7

Now you’ve learnt all these new skills you’ll be asked to show us them in a sequence. Once you are proficient in these areas and your instructors are satisfied with your performance, you can be cleared to jump without an instructor with you in free fall.

AFF LEVEL 8

A solo skydive from 5000ft with just a short delay before opening your parachute completes your training. This skydive is to simulate an unplanned low altitude exit.

CONSOLODATION JUMPS

You are now required to complete 10 solo skydives with exercises given by your instructor for each skydive. Once completed you will take an open book written exam. Pass this and congratulations you are a licensed skydiver!!
