Accelerated Freefall (AFF)

The fast track way to experience freefall

Freefall with the help of professional skydive instructors to help you each step of the way

For those looking to solo jump on their first day, consider the Static Line Jump. The jump itself consists of a simple poised exit from the airplane. As the skydiver falls away from the plane, the deployment of the main canopy is initiated by a “static line” attached to the aircraft. The skydiver will experience only a very short free fall before the opening of the main parachute is initiated. You will be required to go through Ground School for 4-5 hours before your jump so plan to be at our skydiving center all day. Ground School Training will be held rain or shine. Come solo jump via a static line!

The Process

How It Works

Freefall with the help of professional skydive instructors to help you each step of the way

The AFF student is required to attend ground school training which is run every Saturday at the Dropzone from 08h00.

Additional training with an AFF instructor is performed post this ground school training.

The AFF programme is a 10 level programme. The student is required to pass each level before progressing. Each level has specific tasks the student needs to perform on that particular jump.

Levels 1-3 are with 2 Instructors holding onto you, exiting from 11 000ft.

Levels 4-7 are with 1 instructor and levels 8-10 are solo skydives.

Before each level, the AFF instructor will brief the student what is expected of him/her on the level. Once the jump has been completed, the AFF instructor(s) will de-brief the student and deliver a pass/fail verdict. The student then either repeats the jump or advances to the next level.
 
The AFF program should be completed within a 8 week period to benefit from the accelerated learning.
