Accelerated Freefall Skydive - Level 1

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...

Duration (Exact): Your AFF level 1 will last for two days - one day of teaching and one day of jumping.
Booking Availability: The centre is open seven days a week, almost 365 days a year. The team will contact you after booking to arrange the date of your jump.
What You'll Need: All equipment is provided by Skydive Langar, however we'd advise wearing full-length trousers and top (it can get cold above 10,000ft) and some good, outdoor footwear (trainers are best). Those with long hair should bring a hair tie. The AFF level 1 course takes two days, so bring casual clothing for the evening.
Ability Level Requirements: No previous skydiving experience is required. A good head for heights is beneficial (but not essential)!
Physical Requirements: The minimum age of jumpers is 16, and under 18s must provide a signed copy of Form F106. The maximum age of jumpers is 55, and over 40s or those suffering from certain medical conditions must provide approval from their Doctor - Form 114a. The maximum weight limit for jumpers is 16 Stone/102kg, and they must not be significantly overweight.
Instruction/Guiding Details: You will jump with two qualified instructors flying by your side to guide your every move.
Getting There: Langar Airfield is 12 miles South East of Nottingham and 5 miles South of Bingham on the border of Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. The Airfield is between the villages of Langar and Harby, and The Parachute School is located in the Control Tower building on the Airfield. There is a bus service from Nottingham, however the centre is best reached by car - there is plenty of parking on site. The AFF level 1 course runs over two days, so you will need to arrange accommodation for Saturday evening - AirBnB offers a range of accommodation options in the area.
