Yes! You can complete the AFF course in Spain.
This is very important information – you don’t have to start AFF from scratch!
There are many reasons why the AFF course might not be completed. Most often, this is due to unfavorable weather, lack of instructor availability, or limited time that we can dedicate to additional weekend trips. The season in north Europe is quite short, and the number of rainy, cloudy, and windy days outweighs sunny and calm days for most of the year.
Tandems, weather, queue
Once we have the desired weather, tandem passengers, cameramen, organized groups are waiting in line. In Poland and northern Europe, jumping usually takes place only on weekends. For a few months, mainly on weekends. Some cancellations are due to weather forecasts, while others fall victim to random events, such as airspace reservations, malfunctions or aircraft inspections, competitions… etc. Heck! Airspace can even be blocked by things like a volcanic eruption or a papal visit.
If someone has started AFF skydiving training, a winter break will lead not only to a regression of skills but also to an increase in fear before jumps. Over time, we will start to rationally explain to ourselves why skydiving isn’t for us. The truth lies in the accumulation of fears. Inevitably, longer breaks cloud the memory of the joy of jumping with undefined concerns and a lack of confidence in our ability to acquire skills.
How to complete the AFF course when there are no jumps? There is a solution to this problem!
In Spain, we enjoy 80% sunny days per year. Easy flight connections, a year-round efficiently operating drop zone provide as many take-offs as we want. Availability of up to 3 planes allows for flexibility in case of larger groups. During a trip to sunny Spain, you can efficiently finish the started AFF course from elsewhere. You can jump independently and gain a good feeling in the air, move to a higher level, and learn additional skills. You might even consider getting a license and starting a new season in your country as an independent skydiver!
Individual bridging program!
An individual bridging program will be prepared for each person, so that previously acquired skills result in faster course completion and the start of solo jumps toward an A or B license.

Wind Tunnel? Better spend on jumps!
