AFF Skydiving Course – sky is your new playground
AFF is the fastest and safest way to become a skydiver. The amazing feeling of freedom, of space and free fall are impossible to describe from the ground. Enormous emotions and adrenaline accompanying the skydiving course can be even addictive. The possibility of flying with other jumpers after the course, making figures on the unlimited sky playground gives a lot of joy and satisfaction. Also in addition to all that, the AFF parachute course is also a great idea for an original holiday plan and a break from everyday routine.
AFF Skydiving Course – fast, modern and personal
AFF skydiving course is fast. Yes, even in 4-5 days you can learn how to jump out of the plane from a height of 15 000 ft (the highest in Europe!), freefall for over a minute making various acrobatics and finally open a parachute and steer it to the safe landing. Although we recommend minimum 7 days stay, with 10 days as optimum.
After the AFF course, you can continue to train to acquire the skills to jump with other skydivers and obtain the license of the USPA B solo skydiver.
Before you jump out of the plane for the first time with your parachute on your back and in the company of your instructors, you will have a full-day theoretical training, exercises on the ground, parachute harness training and theoretical knowledge exam.
During the AFF course, you also learn how to pilot you parachute. Canopy piloting is a completely separate discipline of this sport (advanced skydivers may want to develop their skills in the so-called SWOOP). After opening the canopy, your instructors help you steer and land using radio communication.
After the jumps, the instructors analyse videos (de-brief) and set the exercises to improve and ensure your progress. The course is adapted to your psychophysical conditions to the maximum. Training in small groups of 2-3 people ensure a very individual approach.
