AFF learn to skydive program

The AFF program, or Accelerated Freefall, is the most popular format to learn to skydive. It consists of one day of ground theory and 9 skydives or stages. Instructors brief students before every skydive and assist them in freefall and deployment. As skydiving students make progress through the course they learn new skills in every skydive to help them build confidence and control in freefall as well as flying the parachute.
