Go straight to 'A' License. This is the ultimate package to get into the world of skydiving - AFF Levels 1 - 8 + 10 Consolidation Jumps.
Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is the fastest and most effective entry point to sport skydiving - in just one week you will go from a complete beginner to a Category 8 internationally licensed skydiver! Skydive Langar were the first school in the UK to teach this course - way back in 1985 - so you'll be training with the best!
The week commences with a full day of ground training with your instructor. After meeting your other students (a maximum of 3 per course), you will be spend the day working on the theory and practice of skydiving. You will be trained on entering/exiting the aircraft, freefall positioning, control and communication in the air, landing technique and safety procedures. There's a lot to take in, but the simulators and friendly atmosphere will make sure you have some fun in around all the learning! Before your first jump, you will be asked to demonstrated all the drills and procedures to your instructors until they are completely satisfied that you're ready to go, so when the time comes, you'll know exactly what to do!
Provided you pass the tests on day 1, the next day you will be making your very first solo skydive jump! The Level 1 skydive is made from 12,000ft, and you will be jumping with two instructors holding onto you - over the next 50-60 seconds they will continue to teach you using hand signals and direct in-air instruction - it's this in-air tuition that makes AFF the fastest way to qualifying, as you can learn and progress in real-time as you fall. When the time comes to pull your parachute, you will continue to be guided by your instructors via a radio fitted to your helmet - they'll be with you every step of the way! Upon landing back at the drop zone (DZ) you'll be debriefed by your instructors on your performance, and - if it went well - you'll start your training for Level 2!
The full AFF course comprises 8 Levels, which can be completed within a week of jumping (if the weather is good it can take significantly less). All the equipment you will need is provided, and you'll also receive your own altimeter, skydiving helmet, goggles and logbook to keep at the end of the course, along with British Parachute Association (BPA) membership for the year.
Upon completing your Level 8 jump, you will become 'Category 8' qualified by the BPA. It's then time to start your 10 solo 'consolidation' jumps in your own time, after which you'll be upgraded to 'A License'; allowing you to skydive independently anywhere in the world!
This package offers an excellent saving over regular AFF courses, and can make great sense in the Spring and Summer months - when the weather's good you can easily manage all 18 jumps within a week, getting you straight to A License and ready to start exploring the world from a whole new perspective!
It's a commitment, but - if you're ready for it - this is the gateway to one of the most amazing lifestyle sports going!
