Accelerated Freefall Residential Weeks

Learn to skydive with our one-week intensive Accelerated Freefall (AFF) training courses and go home a qualified skydiver.

The full UK AFF course consists of 8 Levels (1 jump per level) and then you need a further 10 solo consolidation parachute jumps to apply for your British Parachute Association A-Licence.

We understand it can be daunting when you start a new sport and so this year we have launched 'Accelerated weeks' with the aim of helping students meet like-minded people and have the best introduction to skydiving possible.

How long does it take?

Our intensive skydiving courses run for 5/6 days starting every week April - September. You are welcome to stay longer for additional days to complete the necessary jumps.

Sky diving is a weather dependant sport and it’s the one aspect we can neither control nor predict. Plus the speed at which you progress in your training depends on how you the student, take to this extreme sport. All being well, you can expect to complete 3 jumps per day, but sometimes more or less.

The Accelerated Freefall Progression System

Day 1 Groundschool: Training starts at 9am and over the course of the day a fully qualified BPA instructor will teach you everything you need to know to safely complete your first skydive.

Unfortunately it’s not always possible to complete the Level 1 jump immediately after the course and you may find that you jump the following morning.

Accompanied by two expert instructors you jump from 15,000ft wearing your own parachute and after up to one minute of exhilarating freefall you open and land it yourself.
