Full AFF Course in Cornwall

Want to become a qualified and independent skydiver? The Accelerated Freefall (AFF) course is for you. It is a new progressive fast track skydiver training programme which takes you from complete beginner to Category 8 qualified skydiver in as little as 8 tuition jumps. The AFF Course is based around eight levels, and usually you will do one skydive at each level. If the weather is kind, the course can be completed in five - seven days. This course will teach you a huge amount of both practical and theory and will leave you to pursue a lifetime of thrills in the sky!

The course will start with a full days tuition, you will then work your way through the following levels:
  • Level 1: Your first jump is with two instructors and is designed to teach you the basics; exits, stability, altitude awareness and control of the parachute canopy. Three practice ripcord pulls, altitude awareness and the actual pull, are all part of this jump. The instructors hold on to you throughout the freefall portion of this jump. Radio assistance is given under canopy during the descent and landing if necessary.
  • Level 2: As level 1 but with only 2 practice pulls and a turn to the left and right.
  • Level 3: Instructors ‘release’ you, allowing you to fly alone, but staying in close proximity to re-grip and provide assistance if necessary.
  • Level 4: Exiting with just one instructor holding on exit, 180 degree left turn and 180 right and forward movement.
  • Level 5: One instructor holds you on exit, 360 left turn, 360 right and forward movement.
  • Level 6: Dive exit with instructor following. Back loop, delta track, 180 turn and delta track.
  • Level 7: Dive exit instructor following. Back loop, delta track, 360 turn left, 360 right.
  • Level 8: Solo exit from 5,000 feet, followed by deployment of your canopy within a few seconds. This familiarizes you with a lower exit altitude and a faster pull. On completion of level 8 you graduate from AFF. Following graduation you must make 10 further jumps, called consolidation jumps, under the guidance of an AFF instructor. These jumps allow you to practice what you have learnt on your own. On completion you are qualified as a category 8 skydiver and can join in with the regular skydivers and start to have some serious fun.
