STEP 1:

Before starting AFF, you must complete:

1 tandem skydive + 10 minutes of wind tunnel AFF training at iFLY Utah

OR

2 tandem skydives

STEP 2:

Sign up for AFF Ground School HERE.

This is a 5-6 hour class where you will learn everything you need to know to successfully complete your first solo skydive. If you would like to get a head start, you can read through the USPA Online Ground School, which will give you an overview of the course.

STEP 3:

Now you will work your way through the 7 jump levels. Here is a short summary of the main freefall tasks of each level.

LEVEL 1

This is your first solo jump. Held by 2 instructors, the main focuses are altitude awareness and a stable body position. 

LEVEL 2

This jump will introduce turning and forward movement, while still being held by your instructors. 

LEVEL 3

This jump will remove the training wheels. Your instructors will let go and let you control yourself in freefall for the first time.

LEVEL 4

Now down to 1 instructor, you will continue flying solo and work on 90 degree turns.

LEVEL 5

Similar to level 4, you will learn 180 and 360 degree turns.

LEVEL 6

You will now learn barrel rolls and flips, and how to regain stability after these maneuvers.

LEVEL 7

Your last jump, you will learn forward movement across the sky.
