Accelerated Freefall Level 1 - For the brave, the determined, or the thrill seekers only.
This is the fastest way into the world of skydiving, and - if you're up for it - the most intense! Skydive Langar were the first school in the UK to start teaching the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) skydive course - way back in 1985 - so they've had 30 years to perfect it!
After a day of training, drills and briefing at the drop zone, AFF students make a full-height, solo skydive on their first ever jump. Supported by two professional instructors (normally with around 4000 jumps between them - you're in safe hands) - you'll exit the aircraft in formation, and over the next 60 seconds your instructors will guide and adjust your position, helping you quickly perfect a stable freefall.
AFF can be great fun to do with friends - during your time at the drop zone, you'll be surrounded by fellow students and skydivers, all very friendly and happy to welcome you into their world! At the weekend there's normally a barbeque happening, and the buzz of jumpers continually flying back to the centre.
Some people choose to do AFF Level 1 so they can claim to have successfully performed a 'real' skydive (instead of a tandem or static line jump) to tick off the bucket list. For others, it's the entry point to becoming a fully-qualified and licensed skydiver. Provided you perform as expected in your jumps, you will quickly progress through the remaining 7 jumps (Levels 2 - 8) and receive your first official license!
It isn't cheap, but if you're looking for the full-fat experience from day one, this is the only way to go. Of course, if you're already sure you want to continue to your qualification, you could consider the AFF Full Course...
