Instruction begins with a 6 hour ground school. Then you are ready to jump wearing your individual parachute system. You and 2 instructors freefall together for about 50 seconds from 13,500 ft.

Your instructors check out together, coaching you through your training assignment, until you pull your ripcord to open your parachute canopy. Then you enjoy a beautiful parachute flight. As you progress through the program, two instructors accompany you through level 3. Then one instructor goes with you until you graduate. When you have completed the program, you are cleared to jump without an instructor. All training is personalized and you will progress at your own rate. The AFF training program includes ground school, pre-jump training, seven levels of advancement, and all the required equipment.
