Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is one of the most extraordinary adventures you will ever have. You will be able to experience solo freefall! You are the one in control of the jump during an AFF skydive. 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.
