First Commercial Skydiving Center in the United States
Many first-time skydivers come to our dropzone for a one-off jump only to find that after experiencing one of life's most incredible adventures, they can't get enough!
If you wish to take your love of skydiving beyond the tandem skydive and experience the pure adrenaline of solo flight, Jumptown offers an AFF - Accelerated Free Fall training program to become a certified skydiver!
AFF is a seven (7) jump progression program designed to add skill sets that transform the novice to a safe and independent, solo skydiver. After the completion of your AFF training, you will need to complete a minimum of 25 solo jumps to earn your skydiving A-license.
The program begins with an intensive ground school starting at 8AM Saturday morning. Lasting between eight to ten hours, first-time jumpers are trained on how to use the parachute equipment, correct freefall body position, emergency procedures and flying the parachute. The class is followed by your first jump (weather and time permitting) with two instructors who fly alongside giving feedback to correct body position and assisting where needed.
Training continues adding additional skill sets for each jump. Jumps B and C1 are made with two instructors.
Jumps C2-E1 consist of jumping alongside one instructor who will be adding to your skill sets preparing you to make your Category E2 jump as a solo skydiver!
Experiencing free fall is only half of the actual skydive! We'll teach you how to fly your parachute with each jump you make. Here are some videos to demonstrate canopy skills progression.
Jumptown also offers unique AFF Camps where you can achieve solo status in an intense four-day training.
If you're ready to begin your exciting journey towards becoming a solo skydiver, view our AFF pricing below or contact a team member for more information.
