Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is one of the most intense, yet exhilarating experiences you can have while skydiving near New Orleans. You can have the opportunity 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.

Because you are controlling your own equipment during an AFF jump, an in-depth training course is required prior to the jump, and an instructor will accompany you during the first three levels of teaching.

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