Maybe have you already experienced Tandem jumping and you dream of more intense sensations ? Or maybe havenâ€™t you done any Tandem jump but you want to take the full command of your jump ? Then, AFF jumping (Accelerated Free Fall) is your way to go. That kind of instruction is ideal to enjoy the thrill of the freefall â€˜â€™aloneâ€™â€™ but in complete safety.
Alone but accompanied !
You will have your own parachute but, for sure, you will leave the plane only after a thorough and dense instruction that will start with a complete evening of theory, highlighting in details the functionality of a parachute, the safety rules you must observe, the emergency procedures you have to master and, if needed, apply and finally and the program of your first jump and the freefall positions to be adopted. After a good night sleep, we will meet in the morning for some practice and a last rehearsal on creepers and in the suspended harness.
Then, you are on your way to the altitude of 4.000 m with your parachute on your back, together with your two Instructors. The will be on your side all along the freefall, helping you to control your position and making sure that you open your parachute properly at the altitude of 1.500 m. Once your parachute is open, during the few minutes under your canopy, an Instructor on the ground will help you, by radio, to fly your canopy on the pattern and land safely on the foreseen zone.
The AFF discovery jump (Level 1) is the entry gate to the complete AFF Instruction that make you able to be autonomous in the airÂ and progress by jumping with more experienced Skydivers.
For the instruction jumps we use modern dual rigs made of square main and reserve canopies. All rigs are equipped with the latest safety devices (VigilÂ®). Those devices, controlled by a microprocessor, permanently measure the altitude and the fall rate and activates, if needed, the reserve parachute. Jumpsuit, helmet, goggles and altimeter are loaned by Skydive Spa during the whole instruction, just bring sporting clothing and sport shoes.
