Learn to Skydive Solo

What is AFF?

Instructor Assisted Freefall, often referred to as Accelerated Freefall, is an “accelerated” learning program which provides you with the fundamental training necessary to become an independent skydiver. Similar to hiring a tennis or golf pro as a tutor, an AFF course provides instructor assisted skydiving lessons that help you develop the skills you need to become a licensed skydiver.


The Accelerated Freefall course at Cleveland Skydiving Center begins with five to six hours of ground training where you’ll learn skydiving fundamentals. Following your ground training, you will make a jump from 10,500 to 13,500 feet with two certified freefall instructors. The instructors will accompany you throughout the freefall portion of your skydive, from the moment you exit the aircraft until you deploy your canopy. Your AFF instructors will assist you in maintaining a stable body position and monitoring your altitude. Once you reach an altitude of around 5,500 feet, you will deploy your own parachute and fly your canopy back to the landing area.
