The AFF Course is actually the most practice and safe method to learn to skydive..
It was created in United States and permits with an advanced method of teaching to reduce the time of learning of the student, mantaining intact the safety in the theorical course and in the pratical course. The course is divided in two phases:
1° PHASE - THEORY:It is composed by at least 8 hours of learning, between theorical basics and ground simulations, about the freefall and the canopy piloting. Theorical lessons usually are done on friday, in a full day immersion, but they are anyway customizable and times and day can be arranged with the instructor. Once lessons are finished and the student will have demonstrated to be able to fly he starts the second phase of the course.
2° PHASE PRACTICE:The course is developed on 7 levels, it's composed by 7 jumps with the instrutor who follows and assists the student. During firse three levels there will be two instructors, from fourth to seventh level there will be just one instructor. During the freefall the student will open the parachute at 1500 meters where the canopy piloting will begin, the student will have to lead the canopy to the landing area helped by the instructor that will guide the student by radio. After every jump will be done a debriefing with the help of the video realized by instructors. During the 7 jumps of the course instructors will evaluate the exercises done by the student.
In case of student will need another jump to succesfully pass the level, the repetition of the jump will have an additional cost variable between schools.
Once all 7 jumps are succesfully passed the student is licensed to jump without instructors, but still under the supervision of them.
