  • Description

    The Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) skydiving course is the most comprehensive introduction to sports skydiving and consists of nine stages comprising a minimum of 11 jumps. 

    Nothing more to pay on the day! Your Australian Parachute Federation & Fuel Levy is included in the price.

    Once you have demonstrated an understanding of the skydiving skills learnt during your ground training you can progress to a skydiving jump as a TAF student. Your instructor will be attached to you and is there to assist and evaluate your jump, providing stability and a back-up to make sure you deploy your parachute at the correct height. You will initiate the exit from the plane, maintain a arched body position, check in with your instructor, check your height and practice pulling the rip cord. At 5500ft you will wave off and deploy your parachute.

    Once you have successfully deployed your parachute you will commence the final stage of your skydiving adventure – landing. You'll have clear air to fly through while you're guided back to earth by your Instructor, you will be controlling the parachute and following the concise instructions on how to follow the flight path and landing procedures . The skydiving parachute system, specially designed for skydiving students training jumps, comprises a ram air main canopy, a ram air reserve canopy and an Automatic Activation Device. Once the skydiving course is over, the sky's the limit!
