Accelerated Freefall Level 1

The Quickest Route To Becoming A Qualified Skydiver

Accelerated Freefall

Accelerated Freefall is THE main way to  ‘learn to skydive’ in the UK and is the quickest route to becoming a qualified skydiver. Also known as AFF, it’s Intensive, fast-paced and you can experience freefall on your very first jump. In 2021, we have jumped with 100s of students already that have successfully completed either their first jump with us or completed the full course and are now qualified skydivers.

After one full day of ground training you will have learnt all the skills needed to make your first skydive from 15,000ft, accompanied by, but not attached to, two expert instructors. You will then open, fly and  land your own parachute. We offer the AFF level 1 TASTER course as a unique introduction to the world of parachuting and skydiving, which allows you to try it out first. If you fancy something a little more challenging than a Tandem Parachute Jump, its great as a one-off freefall experience.

The full 8-level Accelerated Freefall course is the best way to learn to skydive and attain your licence as a qualified parachutist, allowing you to jump at skydiving centres across the world.

  • Jump solo on your very first skydive from 15,000ft.
  • Open, fly and land your own parachute.
  • Be cleared for unsupervised freefall in as few as 7 jumps.
  • Work towards obtaining your skydiving licence..


What Does AFF Level 1 Involve?

Before you can jump, you will complete an intensive day of ground training with one of our British Skydiving qualified AFF Instructors. This will be theory and practical based, showing you all the equipment and in air requirements you will need to jump. The jump will take place the following day making this a 2-day course.

Day 1

Day 2

The AFF ground training can be both mentally and physically tiring and it’s best to start fresh in the morning. The ground training takes one full day with the Level 1 skydive the following day, weather permitting. We ask all students to commit to the initial 2-days Wed/Thur

For safety reasons we require you to return and jump within one month of your training.

If you are doing your AFF L1 as a one-off experience, you will still be required to commit the same level of effort into the training as if you were going to complete the full course.

If you do not live locally, then we strongly recommend staying onsite or nearby rather than driving a long distance before your course starts. Please note that skydiving is a weather dependent sport and certain conditions are required for first-time jumpers – this can mean your skydive is delayed or has to be rescheduled to an alternative date.
