What is AFF?
The AFF course starts with one full day of ground-training during which you will learn everything you need to know to complete your first solo skydive from 15,000ft. Accelerated Freefall is the route to becoming a qualified skydiver..
You will be taught:
How to check and fit your own equipment
How to exit the aircraft
How to open your parachute
How to deal with emergency situations
How to recognise the dropzone
How to land your parachute
Jumping begins on Day 2 with an introductory AFF-Tandem jump which is the perfect way to orientate yourself from the air and to better understand the landing pattern and procedures here at Skydive Algarve. Then your skydiving experience continues with AFF Level 1. Accompanied by, but not attached to, two expert instructors you will carry out a series of freefall exercises you have been taught, then open, fly and land the parachute yourself. Progressing through the levels you will perform a qualifying dive on Level 7 and a low altitude exit from 5,000ft on Level 8.
There is plenty of local accommodation, many with Skydiver rates and reasonable car hire rates to get you to and from Faro Airport (only 40 minutes away from the DZ). For more information or to book on a course please contact our office [email protected]
