Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Progression

After you've made a first jump--solo or tandem--your next step is the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) training program, sanctioned by the United States Parachute Association (USPA) and enhanced at Skydive Dallas by the proven techniques of Skydive University. During your AFF progression, you will be introduced to the excitement of human flight and parachute piloting while under the supervision of one or more USPA-certified AFF Instructors. These instructors provide in-air coaching, assist with stability and relaxation, and help acclimate you to the fast-paced, heart-pounding, life-altering freefall environment. As an AFF student, you deploy and pilot your own parachute and are given the necessary training and tools to successfully take command of your own fun and safety in the air, on the ground, and everywhere in between.
