Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) is a turbo-charged way to get into skydiving.
The AFF course covers all aspects of your jump.
AFF makes use of modern training equipment and advanced training techniques to put you in control of your skydive on the very first jump.
The two day training course will be your launch-pad to your first skydive where you’ll go straight to 10,000 feet with two instructors beside you to make sure you enjoy your first skydive experience safely.
The AFF training method has nine stages with each jump teaching you more skills on how to fly your body through the air. You’re in charge of the parachute ride too as you fly your parachute under the guidance of an instructor to landing.
On arrival day 1: You will be introduced to your course instructor who is a highly experienced and accredited person within the Australian Parachute Federation whom throughout the day will cover a broad range of topics all designed to make your jump as safe and memorable as possible. Classroom lessons where you will learn what will be required of you as well as practical work covering safety and what to do whilst in freefall, under canopy and landing.
At the completion of day 1: You will be required to sit a multiple choice exam from which you will then cover some of your requirements for your first jump sequence that will be take place on the second day.
On arrival day 2 (Sunday): Once your exam has the tick of approval we move into some additional ground training from which point you will be introduced to the AFF instructors that will be accompanying you on your jump. After a final run through and checks, we go and skydive.
