So, you want to learn to skydive solo?
This learn to skydive training program is taught in the sunny Bay of Islands, at the top of New Zealand. The Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Program is designed to teach you how to skydive solo efficiently and safely, with some of the most experienced instructors in New Zealand.
We provide a supportive and friendly environment for you to learn to skydive. We operate seven days per week, weather permitting.
Through a combination of theory and practical jumps, you will be taken through a progression program that will test your skills in a range of areas – in freefall and under the canopy.
Our AFF course consists of a full day of initial ground training, followed by 8 supervised jumps which will teach you comprehensive skills for flying your body and your parachute. Successful completion of this course will see you being able to skydive solo!
Throughout the course, we will use digital video as a tool to debrief your skydives. This is a great learning tool but also makes for a great souvenir – you can take your videos home with you once you complete the course.
