AFF Ground School – Accelerated Free Fall

Accelerated Free Fall Program

Once you have finished your first jump course, you are ready to make that milestone first jump with your own parachute. This is the beginning of your six jump Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) program. During AFF you will learn, with instructors at your side to help, how to save your own life in the air. You will learn the fundamental live saving skydiving skills which all additional skydiving training will build upon.

The first jump in the program consists of jumping with two instructors that act as “smart training wheels” in the air. They will exit the plane holding on to you and help you maintain stability in the air. Your instructors will give hand signals as necessary in order to help correct your body position in freefall if need be. Finally your instructors will remain by your side until it is time to deploy your parachute and assist you if necessary.

As you progress through the six jump AFF program, you will learn a variety of in air skills. You will learn different methods of exiting the aircraft. You will learn basic freefall maneuvers including turns and forward motion. Finally the program culminates with you performing front flips, back flips, and barrel rolls on your own.
