Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is one of the most intense, yet exhilarating experiences you can have while skydiving near New Orleans. You will have the chance to experience solo freefall! When you opt for an AFF jump, you are in control of your own parachute and rip cord. Most people who choose an AFF jump say they feel an internal sense of accomplishment when it's all over.

Since AFF jumps are navigated by only you, an in-depth safety course is required prior to the jump and an instructor will join you for the first three levels of training.

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