Your first skydives will be with two instructors holding onto you in freefall, helping you remain in control and giving you signals reminding you what to do.
You’re not alone once you’re under parachute! Radio communication & ground signals are used to help guide you down the rest of the way.
AFF is a guided, step-by-step course that teaches you all the skills you need to be able to jump totally solo.
This normally takes 7-10 jumps depending on the course style & your progression.
You will be taught everything you need to know for your first jump. You’ll learn:
Your first skydive will be thoroughly planned with your skydiving instructors so you’ll know exactly what to do.
Radio communication & ground signals are used to help guide you down the rest of the way.
As you become more competent in the air, you'll go with one instructor & they'll let go of you when you're ready. They’ll still be right there giving you any signals you need. You’ll learn how to do a mid-air 360, and even a back flip!
Once competent, the final jump on your Learn to Skydive course will be totally solo!
After you have completed your AFF course you’ll have the skills to jump solo. Once you have 10 additional solo freefall jumps you’ll be ready to apply for your first skydiving license.
Your ‘A-license’ will be recognised all over the world.
