Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)

AFF Course Details

Thanks for your interest in SA Skydiving's Accelerated Free Fall Course. We are South Australia's longest running drop zone with over 30 years experience. Here is a bit more info to get you excited. Know already that you want to start? Fill in this questionnaire to take the first step in becoming a solo skydiver!

The AFF camp consists of 9 stages completed over the course of 5 intensive days (AFF CAMPS) or over 3 days plus following weekends based on your availablity (AFF STARTER). These programs are designed to help you achieve the knowledge and various skills required to make a solo skydive unassisted. An essential part of becoming a qualified skydiver, the AFF course is incorporated into all of our learning packages.

  • Stage 1 to Stage 3 you will have two jump masters that assist you from gearing up to landing, ensuring you are stable in freefall and deploy your own parachute.
  • Stage 4 to Stage 8, depending on skill level and approval of your instructor, will require only one jump master, teaching you skills such as turns, barrell rolls and tracking.
  • By Stage 9 you will be exiting and landing your canopy unassisted!

SA Skydiving runs the most advanced AFF course in the state, utilising an entire fleet of the most up to date equipment, instructional techniques, dedicated instructors and online courses to ensure you progress through the course in the fastest possible time. Our fun and highly experienced instructors will guide you through the entire course, providing one on one tuition and guidance in everything skydiving. Offering the only week long skydiving course in Adelaide as well as dedicated training facilities, SA Skydiving will get you to solo skydiving status in a fun and professional environment. Students are additionally guided through their canopy flight by instructors using modern ground to air radio communication.

Our dedicated AFF camps are run on set dates four times a year (see our calendar of events), and over the course of 5 days you will complete all theory and skydive components required as part of your A License.

Our AFF STARTER courses run the first Thursday of each month that our CAMPS aren't in session.

Regardless which option you chose, you will have dedicated instructors and aircraft to ensure you complete the course in the shortest time possible with maximum progression and learning. These courses begin on either a Tuesday night (5 day CAMPS) or a Thursday night (AFF STARTER) with jump progression available on the following days; allowing students to progress at their own rate and at their conveniance.

Thinking of starting with a friend? Dates in the SA Skydiving calendar don't suit your schedule? Call us to enquire about alternative start dates with a minimum of two people. Private, one on one courses are available as well at additional cost.
