Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is one of the most thrilling adventures you will ever experience. You will be able to experience solo freefall! During an AFF jump, you will be responsible for pulling your own ripcord and controlling your own parachute. Many people say that an AFF jump is a very rewarding experience and gives them a great sense of achievement.

AFF students are required to take an in-depth course prior to the first jump, and will be accompanied by our highly experienced instructors for the first three levels of instruction.

Make the jump from OVER TWO AND A HALF MILES above the ground for an experience like no other!
