Learn to Skydive

Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)

Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) is a 7 Level freefall training program that takes you from ground school to solo freefall. It introduces you to the skills needed to safely do both solo and group skydiving. In only 7 jumps you will learn about skydiving equipment, freefall, parachute control, and landings.  The requirements for making an AFF jump are:

  • Complete all required waivers
  • Be in good health
  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Not exceed 225 pounds
  • Wear proper attire for the weather and please wear tennis shoes - no boots, sandals, flip flops.

The costs for your AFF jumps are: Level one (includes first jump course and jump) is $300, levels 2 and 3 are $250 each, levels 4-7 are $175. Any jumps after that are $65 for a solo jump (once you are signed off) or $90 for a coached jump  until you earn your "A" license. Prices may vary depending on the training method used to reach each level. Please call for details. Participants must call ahead to schedule their AFF skydive.  A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot in the first jump course and will be applied toward the cost of your first jump.  Again, your deposit is NOT refundable.  The first jump course is an all day training course, so plan accordingly.

AFF skydives are available on weekends and some holidays so call now!

Instructor Assisted Deployment (IAD)

After your extensive classroom and hands-on first jump course, you will be fitted with our top of the line, state of the art equipment, and will fly to an altitude of approximately 4,500 feet above the ground to make your first jump. As you exit the aircraft your USPA certified instructor will deploy your parachute for you and you can enjoy a beautiful and peaceful parachute ride while an instructor on the ground guides you to the landing area by giving you instructions on a radio.

  • Complete all required waivers
  • Be in good health
  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Not exceed 225 pounds
