The AFF skydiving course is designed to teach you how to skydive quickly and safely. has used the AFF course to teach thousands of people to skydive all over the world. There are eight, sometiems seven, levels to the AFF course - each consisting of training on the ground, a single skydive and a set of maneuvers that you must complete before moving on to the next level.
Level 1: This first step to solo skydiving normally requires two days. The first day is a full day of training in a classroom with a jumpmaster. Get familiar with terms and skills including free fall, how to read the altimeter, deploying the parachute and flying the parachute.
Level 2: This is almost identical to Level 1! During level 2, you will exit the aircraft with two instructors, learning techniques including turns and forward movement. After your parachute is deployed, a third instructor will direct your parachute flight and landing via radio. Your instructors will go over the skydive, examine the video with you and provide you with constructive feedback.
Level 3: Learn to control your body movements during the free fall so that you can skydive by yourself without the help of two instructors.
Level 4: During this level, you will learn solo turns and advanced body control. Two instructors will accompany you.
Level 5: Learn how to do back loops and delta tracking (gliding across the sky) as two instructors assist.
Level 6: During this level, you will combine all of the skills you have learned! Your first solo exit with only one jumpmaster close by your side. You learn maneuvers that are more advanced, and will demonstrate delta tracking, freefall flips, and recovery from unstable body positions.
Level 7: One jump master remains with you to observe while you make a solo exit and demonstrate your newly acquired skydiving skills. Video is always good to have on this skydived as it completes the course and you perform the jump without any direct aid.
Level 8: Complete a solo jump - entirely on your own from around 5,000 ft. You get out the aircraft, get stable, wait a few seconds and then deploy your parachute.
