Accelerated Freefall Course (AFF)

Active Skydiving specialises in week long residential skydiving trips every month to a variety of sunshine locations to complete the AFF skydiving course. Intensive training is the most effective way to allow for rapid progression in the parachuting arena. For this reason AFF courses are usually run in Spain or USA with groups of between 2 & 4 participants.
