Learn to Skydive: Accelerated Freefall

What is AFF?

AFF (Accelerated Free Fall) is the course required to jump your own parachute. It starts with a First Jump Course, where we teach you all of the essential skills to jump, fly, and land your own parachute--don't worry, we'll be connected through radio the entire time. When you're ready, and you've completed the requirements, you'll be free to jump solo!



AFF Instructor

At Skydive Milwaukee our AFF Learn to Skydive Program was created to give you the full experience of both freefall and canopy flight. Our program starts with a 4-6 hour class that teaches the basic safety principles needed for solo skydiving. Exiting an aircraft, basic body position, deploying and flying a parachute, and other safety procedures.

You'll then take to the skies with two USPA-certified instructors using state-of-the-art student equipment. Your instructors will accompany you for the entire 60-second freefall from 14,500 feet and watch you deploy your own parachute at the proper altitude. Once under canopy, you'll guide yourself in for landing.

Then, when your adrenaline rush is under control, your instructors will review the skydive with you and begin preparing you for your next jump.

Class is held at 7 AM every Saturday (Reservation Required)
Other classes available by appointment.

All our basic requirements apply.
