What is AFF?
AFF is a fast and fun method to progress into the world of skydiving and obtain a skydiving licence recognised around the world. There are 8 levels followed by 10 consolidation jumps, and you are the one controlling your own actions in freefall and under canopy.
An initial groundschool will teach you all you need to know about making your first solo jump; on levels 1-3 you will be accompanied by two instructors, levels 4-7 will be with one instructor, while level 8 and your 10 'consoles' have the potential to be completely on your own.
You will make the majority of your skydives from an altitude of 15,000ft (that's over 2.5 miles!), pulling your own parachute at 6000ft. This means you experience freefall for around one minute and fly your own canopy back down to earth after 4-6 minutes.
An AFF course is intense and thrilling, providing the full skydiving experience, with gorgeous views and 1-on-1 instruction.
You must be able to declare that you are fit and healthy for skydiving before the start of the course. Guidelines on fitness requirements can be found here. Please contact us before booking if you have any concerns.
Courses are run in Europe, typically in the Algarve, Portugal. Courses for 2020 and 2021 are being run in conjunction with our selected partner Skydive Crazy, led by British Skydiving Instructor Examiner Rob Spour.
Courses are typically run once per month, starting on a Monday. Please contact us to confirm availability.
All packages include full ground training for the jumps, but exclude required membership to British Skydiving (typically £35-£110) or flights / accommodation in Portugal.
