AFF course – your new playground: the sky
The AFF course is the fastest and safest way of becoming an solo skydiver. The incredible feeling of freedom, the freefall and the sensations that come with it, are hard to describe from earth. The amount of emotions and the adrenaline that comes with the AFF course can be addictive. The vision of flying with other jumpers, creating formations in the sky provides incredible happiness and satisfaction. The AFF skydiving course may also be a great idea for holidays, escaping the day to day routine. #mentaldetox #disconnect #escape #massivefun #bestfriends.

AFF course – the outline
AFF skydiving course (Accelerated Free Fall) is the fastest way of becoming a solo skydiver. In even 3-4 days you can learn how to jump from 15000 ft entirely on your own. See below why we recommend 10-day stay.
After an AFF skydiving course you can learn how to jump with other skydivers and obtain your 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 ground school. This includes training on the suspended harness, PLF (parachute landing fall) training, landing area briefing etc. You will be required to pass a written exam before being allowed to jump.
You will be provided with a special skydiving jumpsuit, full gear, helmet, goggles and an altimeter. All you need to skydive safely.
During your first jumps you will be accompanied by two instructors, which will hold you by the harness of your parachute. They will correct your position, helping you through your freefall with signals, until you open your canopy.
During your AFF course you will also learn how to pilot your canopy. After the opening of your canopy your instructors will guide you over the radio towards your landing.
After your daily jumps end, the instructors play videos of 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 out of the training. Small classes of 2 or 3 students maximum at a time ensure you are given all the best opportunity to learn and ask questions. In this way you are making the most of your time and money.
At Skydive Atmosfera you will also gain basic skydiving knowledge – for example how to properly pack your parachute. Nevertheless it’s not until you already performed 50 jumps that the ability of packing the parachute will be required. It will be for your USPA B license. Although it always comes in handy to learn the basics.

AFF course – framework
We recommend for your course about 10 days. Let’s see what happens each day of your course. Your course and stay with us will be planned as follows:
- day 1: arrival
- day 2: ground school
- day 3: ground school revision, practical exercises and the 1st jump, AFF level 1
- day 4: ground school revision and 2 jumps, levels 2 and 3
- day 5: ground school revision and 2 or 3 jumps, levels 4 to 6
- day 6: ground school revision and 2 or 3 jumps, levels 6 to 7
- day 7: rest day or solo jumps
- day 8: solo jumps
- day 9: solo jumps
- day 10: departure
This is only a rough plan however as sometimes we cannot jump due to weather conditions or simply because you’d prefer to do some sightseeing. We still have a couple days as a backup. The AFF skydiving course can be finished faster than in 7 days and the remaining time can be spend on solo skydives or sightseeing Seville. You can try out other recommended places which you can find here on the map at the bottom of this page.
Our base is located less than an hour drive to the Atlantic Ocean. Many skydivers choose 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.
