Learn to Skydive Solo

AFF Skydive

To skydive on your own at most drop zones in the world, you may earn a United States Parachute Association (USPA) “A” License at our Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Skydiving School. USPA has highly rated our ground school and in-air instructors.

To prepare for your first AFF jump, Certified Instructors provide six to eight hours of ground training. On that same day (weather permitting), you make your first jump with two instructors keeping you stable during exit. They stay with you as you deploy your parachute and guide you by radio as you pilot your canopy to the landing area. You’ll be debriefed about your jump and on your path toward your license.

Once you've started the student program, you must make at least one jump every 30 days to maintain currency. After completing seven skydives and mastering key skills, you will be able to leave the plane without freefall supervision.

The most basic certification and the ultimate in thrill jumping is achieving the “A” license. To advance past AFF status and achieve an “A” License, you must complete 25 freefall jumps, and 19 minutes of freefall time. All student jumps are from 13,500’, except for two mandated “low solo” jumps.
