Solo First Jump [AFF Course]

The AFF Course is the easiest and fastest way to become a skydiver. The training program combines comprehensive preparation on the ground with training jumps to get you certified in the sky.

The program begins with eight hours of classroom tuition where student learns a range of skills necessary to make a safe first jump.

Next the student begins a series of jumps designed to build the knowledge and skills required to jump alone safely.

The AFF program is based on seven jumps with requirements of the student at each level. If each level is passed on the first attempt, the student can graduate with only 7 jumps.

During the first 3 levels the student will be followed by two instructors, In the following levels only one instructor is required. After the student has passed the seven levels and the final graduation jump he/she will become a qualified skydiver with an internationally recognised license.
