Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is one of the most intense, yet exhilarating experiences you can have while skydiving near New Orleans. 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. Once back on the ground, most AFF jumpers report a thrilling sense of accomplishment that they took the skydiving plunge.

In order to participate in an AFF jump, an in-depth course must be completed by the jumper, and then the first three levels of instruction will be joined by a highly qualified instructor.

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