The Accelerated Freefall Program is the most accepted and practiced training program that leads a first time jumper on his/her way to solo freefall. No prior Tandem jumps are required to participate in the AFF program.
The first level will be a training tandem skydive, where you do the skydive and open the tandem parachute. For the next three levels two instructors will accompany you, and on the last four levels, one instructor will accompany you.
This program is designed to take a student from his or her first jump to being signed off student status. It will teach you to be a competent skydiver. One can complete this program in as little as one week. Once you start the AFF program you must maintain currency.
If you go longer than 30 days you need to attend a refresher course and could possibly back up a level. A Tandem Skydive at Skydive Temple is not required prior to enrolling in the AFF course. You must be in satisfactory physical condition. Minimum age is 18. Maximum weight limit is 230 pounds.
