    Learn to Skydive

    Get schooled in something spectacular.

    Learn to skydive solo with our nine-stage Accelerated Freefall (AFF) skydiving course.

    A tandem skydive is truly incredible. But plunging solo? Well that’s a whole new league of euphoria. Our skydive school let’s you learn at your own pace with dedicated skydive instructors guiding you to your first independent freefall. This course not only equips you with a skillset most can’t fathom, but connects you with fellow freefallers—your very own wolf pack of the wild kind. Many of our AFF students have gone on to become world class skydivers or instructors. Others just carry on jumping solo with a plane load of enthusiasm. Ready to join them? We're waiting for you.

    Progress at your own pace

    Learn to skydive solo and experience the thrill of an independent freefall and deploying your own parachute. This internationally recognised AFF skydive course involves up to nine hours of comprehensive ground training before your first jump at Stage 1. Our highly qualified skydive instructors help you develop your skydive skills every step, at a pace that you feel comfortable with. If you’re eager, you’ll be flying solo quicker than you can say ‘jump’.

    Comprehensive ground training

    Once you’ve done the comprehensive ground training, you’ll exit the aircraft with two instructors holding on to you. On the way down you’ll perform some skydive tasks, deploy your parachute by 4500 feet, then descend through the sky to your landing area. By the time the course is finished you’ll be qualified to skydive on your own. You may even decide to turn this sport into more than a hobby.

    What happens after the nine AFF stages?

    Once you’ve successfully completed all nine stages, it’s time to learn how to pack your own parachute and land accurately without any assistance.

    You need to complete ten solo skydives - called ‘consolidation jumps’ in the course - to ensure you’re sufficiently skilled in everything we’ve taught you. Once you have satisfied all requirements of the course, you’ll be eligible to apply for your A Licence from the Australian Parachute Federation. Yee-ha!!!

    WHAT'S INVOLVED IN YOUR AFF COURSE?

    The AFF skydiving course involves up to nine hours of comprehensive ground training before your first jump.

    Our highly qualified skydiving instructors come armed with state-of-the-art equipment and all the personality traits needed to encourage and develop your flying skills.

    1
    Stage One

    On your first jump you will be jumping tandem with one of our experienced instructors who will teach you the basics of all aspects of a skydive. Following this, you'll jump solo with two highly experienced skydiving instructors by your side. You will steer your own parachute, communicating with an instructor on the ground until you are guided in safely for landing.

    2
    Stage Two

    Stage two teaches you how to fly forward through the sky in a 'delta' body position. Your two skydiving instructors will continue to hold you and fly with you the whole way down.

    3
    Stage Three

    Next you learn how to make controlled turns during freefall and hover on a column of air. When you're ready, one of your skydiving instructors will let you go and fly in front of you. The independence begins!

    4
    Stage Four

    Stage four will see you jumping out at up to 14,000 feet with just the one instructor. Once you have demonstrated your stability, your instructor will release their grip on you, coming around to fly in front of you.

    5
    Stage Five

    Now it's time to try a solo exit from the plane and learn how to turn your body 360 degrees. After practising 'docking' techniques, you will deploy your parachute at 3500 feet for an unassisted landing back at the drop zone.

    6
    Stage Six

    After a solo exit, the stage six skydive focuses on turns and forward movement. Your skills will be well and truly building by this point and your confidence will be gaining momentum.

    7
    Stage Seven

    This is the stage everyone looks forward to! After exiting the plane, your instructor will demonstrate a backflip – you can now follow their lead and try one on your own. Initiate your turn and make a high-speed track away from your jumpmaster. Thrills aplenty!

    8
    Stage Eight

    Stage eight will see you consolidating your solo skydive training with a dive exit followed by fall rate control to your instructor. You'll then do a 360 degree left and right turn followed by a track. If you don't know these terms yet, fear not! You very soon will.

    9
    Stage Nine

    The final stage in your AFF course involves two jumps exiting the plane from 5000 feet and 4000 feet to orientate you with jumping from lower altitudes. Following this, you officially graduate. Time to pop the champers!
