ENG AFF COURSE
AFF course – the sky which makes your new playground
The AFF course is the fastest and safest way of becoming an independent skydiver. The incredible feeling of freedom, the freefall and the sensations that comes with it are hard to describe from earth. The amount of emotions and the adrenaline that comes with the AFF course can be addictive and the possibility of flying with others, creating formations in the sky provides incredible happiness and satisfaction. The AFF course may also be a great idea for holiday, escaping the day to day routine.

Here’s an invitation for you to learn how to book a course with us!
An AFF course – the overall
An AFF course (accelerated free fall training) is the fastest way of becoming an independent skydiver. In just 2-3 days you can learn how to jump from nearly 16500ft entirely on your own. Performing all kinds of formations, opening your parachute at 16500ft and safely landing on the ground. After an AFF course there is the possibility to learn how to jump with others and you can obtain the further USPA B license.
Before being able to jump out of a plane with your parachute and accompanied by your instructors, you’ll have to face a full day theoretical training accompanied by the on-ground exercises. This includes training on the suspended harness. You will be required to pass the theory exam before being allowed to jump.
In Skydive Atmosfera we will provide for you a special suit, modern skydiving gear, helmet, goggles and an altimeter, which is everything you need to jump safely.
During your first jumps you will be accompanied by two of our instructors, which will hold you by the harness of your parachute and will correct your silhouette, helping you through your freefall, until your canopy opens.
During your AFF course you will also learn how to fly your canopy, it won’t only be the freefall we will assist you with. After the opening of your canopy your instructors will guide you over the radio and will assist you controling your landing .
After your daily jumps finish instructors play videos from your jumps while revising them with you and give you useful tips on what should be improved. This is to ensure the students pass safely whilst getting the most from the training. Small classes of 2 or 3 students at a time ensure you are given all the best opportunity to learn and ask questions, making the most of your time with us.
Skydive Atmosfera will provide your theoretical AFF training where you will start to gain basic knowledge – for example how to properly pack your parachute. Nevertheless it’s not until you already performed 50 jumps the ability of packing the parachute will be checked – for your USPA B license, although it always comes in handy to learn the basics.

· day 1: arrival

This is only a rough plan however as sometimes we cannot jump due to a weather conditions or simply because you’d prefer to do some sightseeing. We still have a couple days as a backup. The AFF course can be finished faster than in 7 days and the remaining time can be spend on independent jumps or sightseeing in Seville. Our base is located less than an hour drive to the ocean and so many skydivers chose to have a day off on the beach in the middle of the course. The fact that our AFF course is personalised allows you to have more freedom and less pressure towards achieving your goals. Our priority is your comfort.
