Want to learn to skydive solo?

Our 12-jump AFF program is the way to do it. We want you to understand human flight and know how to skydive safely. Our USPA-certified AFF instructors will be with you every step of the way—on the ground and in the skies.


CAT A: The First Step to Skydive Solo

Our AFF program begins with a five-hour ground school that covers gear, procedures, and techniques essential to a safe skydive, as well as ground practice and simulations of skydiving scenarios. When complete, you’ll do an AFF familiarization tandem jump. On successful completion of that jump, you’ll make your first solo jump accompanied by two AFF  instructors, trained to assist you through exit, free fall, and parachute deployment. Another instructor will be on the ground, guide you through landing via radio.

Once you finish your AFF program, you can jump solo at our drop zone, but you are still considered a student. To become a USPA-licensed skydiver, you need to earn your A License. This requires a total of 25 jumps; some will require a USPA coach and demonstrated skill progression, some are solo jumps. Your AFF jumps apply to this number, as well. Our A License package includes everything: The entire AFF program, the additional skill and solo jumps, coaching, gear rental, and pack jobs.

The AFF and the A-License programs are progression programs. You have to demonstrate and achieve specific skills to move to the next jump. The USPA has a number of resources to help. Dive in.
