During the AFF course, you learn to move safely during free fall. This training is followed by the “completion” part in order to perform the required number of training jumps. The AFF training method is currently the most advanced and most effective free fall training method available. AFF stands for A
all, i.e. an AFF course is an accelerated free fall training. In this context, “accelerated
” does not refer to the speed of falling but rather to your learning progress, starting from the first free jump that you perform from an altitude of 4000 meters in a controlled environment and accompanied by two specially trained instructors. Before your first jump however, you need to complete ground school, which will give you a theoretical and practical basis for parachuting and will prepare you for your first jump (level 1). The jumps to be performed during the course are divided into seven levels of learning. During each level jump, you will gradually train certain free fall tasks which are studied on the ground beforehand. During each jump, the accompanying instructors will secure and correct your movements during the ca. 50 seconds of free fall. In addition, they can interfere in emergency situations. If the respective level targets are performed to the satisfaction of the instructors, you advance to the next training level. If crucial learning objectives of a certain level are missed, that stage must possibly be repeated. Starting with level 4, you will only be accompanied by one instructor. The AFF course ends as soon as you pass level 7 of the training. You are now able to perform jumps from 4000 meters on your own, and you can now start the “completion” phase of your AFF course.
As the name implies, the completion phase amends and completes your free fall course. After the initial AFF course, you are able to perform controlled free fall jumps on your own, but you still lack substantial skills for secure parachuting. Therefore, you will still be a student during the completion phase, i.e. you will be monitored, supervised and schooled by our instructors until you pass your practical exam. The completion of your course includes all training contents after your AFF course until your 25th jump (including 2 exam jumps).
