AFP 01 w/ First Jump Coursefrom $360.00

This course is unsurpassed if you are interested in becoming an accomplished skydiver in the least amount of time or want to "feel it all" in one jump. The AFF program is our most advanced course offered. The private instruction is structured in a two-phase program. Phase I consists of seven jumps. Each of the seven jumps are regarded as "learning categories." Each category features a performance objective and this program eliminates the static line jumps by beginning the first jump at 10,000 to 13,000 feet! Phase II consists of a minimum of nine coaching jumps. After reaching the desired altitude, it is time to freefall with your two instructors who will grasp your harness on each side accelerating to over 120 miles per hour for up to 60 seconds! Then you can pull the ripcord and enjoy a breath taking five minute flight under your own parachute. Yes, these parachutes truly fly and you get to steer your parachute during your decent. We will help you guide your chute with control commands for a closer, safer landing and be nearby to share your excitement and congratulate you on your jump! After the jump, you will be critiqued and given a First Jump Certificate and a skydiving logbook. As you pass to the next learning level, the instructor will outline the next lesson plan and explain the new objectives. Completing Phase I qualifies you to make solo skydives. Once you complete Phase I you move to Phase II where you will perform a series of coached skydives with a dive coach to build the skills and proficiency requirements for an 'A' License. Upon graduation you will receive your 'A' License rating and be qualified to skydive with jumpers other than instructors or coaches. Want to view your AFF skydive over and over again? You can capture the excitement of your skydive forever and have permanent proof that you jumped! Hire a professional freefall Videographer to photograph and video tape your skydive. As you and your instructor jump from the aircraft, so does your Videographer. This allows him to fly just inches away in freefall to get some great personal photos and video. When making your AFF skydive appointment, please ask about our Photography Services.
