AFF - The Process
First Jump Course & Jump 1
The program begins with an intensive ground school known as the first jump course. Lasting between six to eight hours, first time jumpers are trained on how to use the parachute equipment, correct freefall body position, emergency procedures and flying the parachute. The class is followed by your first jump with two instructors who fly alongside giving feedback to correct body position and assist where needed.
Training continues adding additional skill sets for each jump. Jumps two and three are made with two instructors.
Jumps 4-7 consist of jumping alongside one instructor who will be adding your to your skill sets preparing you to make jump number eight a completely solo skydive!
I'm so glad my first tandem jump was at Midwest Freefall...
