AFF Courses

AFF Level 1The AFF course, run from Empuriabrava in Spain, is by far the best and safest way to be introduced into the world of freefall. In this course you will learn not only how to control and fly your parachute but also how to control your body in freefall. With your instructors you will undergo extensive ground school and preparatory training to enable you to attain the learning objectives set out for each jump from 12.500ft in fantastic weather conditions. The AFF course is designed for those who wish to either take up the sport or simply have an experience of a lifetime and a sense of achievement. It courses consists of 8 jumps made up of one tandem and 7 solos. This is then followed by 10 consolidation jumps which allow the student to gain their 'A' license and thus become a qualified skydiver. These courses are available all year round at any time of the year, as are the accommodation options. To make a booking or to discuss the course contact us.

Course ProgrammeParachute Deployment

The AFF course is a seven-level program designed to teach you to become a skydiver. Together with 2 instructors, you will freefall for about 50 seconds from 12,500 feet. During one day of ground training you will learn all about your equipment, how to fly your body in freefall and your emergency drills.

When you are ready for Level 1 Accelerated Freefall (AFF), you will complete your first assisted solo skydive on your own parachute. This jump is made from 12,500 feet with two instructors. On the first 3 levels, two instructors will accompany you in freefall. The last 4 jumps only require one AFF instructor.

Your jumps will always be recorded by air-to-air video to allow the instructor to give you the most accurate post-jump debriefing of your performance. The descents are all controlled by radio link to an instructor on the ground, in order for you to learn to fly and land your parachute in all safety. On successful completion of the AFF course, you are presented with an achievement certificate, a log book and a DVD of your jumps. With this experience, you can then complete the necessary 10 consolidation jumps in order to acquire your A license which allows you to progress onto formation skydiving, freeflying and a whole lot more!
