AFF courses are offered during Spring and Summer. Courses begin each year around April 1 and the program closes for the Winter at the end of September. 

The AFF course is comprised of 7 levels.  Each level builds upon the lessons learned in the previous one. For level I, II, and III you will take to the sky while two jumpmasters exit the aircraft holding on to you and assisting you during the freefall portion of the jump.  Once your parachute is open, you will make a solo canopy descent while being guided from the ground by a qualified instructor using a radio. In the next four levels (Levels IV - VII) you will learn how to do turns, flips, forward movement, recovery from instability, and critical parachute skills . Upon successful completion on these levels, you will progress to more advanced maneuvers such as solo exits and front and back loops. Start preparing immediately by studying the USPA Skydivers Information Manual

AFF classes are generally held on weekdays by reservation only.  We do our best to be flexible scheduling as we understand everyone has different lives and responsibilities.

You will start your journey with a 4-5 hour ground school which takes place at the Dropzone. During ground school you will learn the principles of skydiving, body position, aircraft procedures, the basics of canopy flight, and aircraft and parachute emergency procedures amongst much more. Once you’ve demonstrated a basic understanding of these principles it’s time to take your newfound skills and knowledge to the sky.

Your first skydives will be with two jump masters. They will guide you step - by - step through each of the jumps and skills you are practicing. You will learn stable free fall, altitude awarness, canopy skills, good decision making, and how to safely land and fly a parachute. You will also learn movement skills such as turns, flips, and forward movement. All of these skills are geared towards building a solid safe foundation.
