*Repeat jumps not included in pricing
First Jump Courses (Ground School) are scheduled in the Spring through early Summer to allow time for students to complete the entire training program and obtain a USPA A License during the jump season. Please note, all student training jumps (AFF/Coaching) are to be scheduled and made weekday only.
Enrollment into the Training Program should be within 6 months or less of making a Tandem Skydive at Skydive Oregon. Tandem skydives serve as a great training tool and exposure to freefall.
The Accelerated Freefall Training Program, or AFF, is designed to teach you to skydive solo and is the first step toward earning your A-License.
When you enroll into a First Jump Course / Ground School, you are committing to the entire A-license training program.
You will receive a pre-course training manual and study materials to prepare for you 4-6 hour class. After your class, you will be responsible for scheduling your weekday jumps.
All AFF skydives are planned for 14,500’ altitude to allow students maximum freefall time to learn the necessary skills.
Each level includes one skydive with targeted learning objectives that must be satisfactorily demonstrated before moving onto the next level. Each pair of skydives is designed to be completed the same day, or as close as possible, within a maximum of 30 days. Specific currency and performance standards apply to all levels. All required equipment is included.
Your instructors will be at your side throughout freefall, coaching you during the skydive until you deploy your parachute. After opening, you will fly the parachute to landing with back up assistance via radio from the ground. You will jump with two instructors for the first three levels of the AFF program. At AFF Level Four, one instructor will accompany you on each jump until you complete AFF Level Seven. When you have successfully passed all of your AFF training jumps, you will be cleared to jump as a solo student and move into the coaching phase of the training program to complete your A-license.
Once you have completed AFF 7, you are ready to jump with a skydiving coach to continue working towards earning your A-License from the United States Parachute Association. The coaching program is designed to teach you how to safely skydive with other jumpers.
Each level includes two skydives with targeted learning objectives that must be satisfactorily demonstrated before moving onto the next level. Each pair of skydives is designed to be completed the same day, or as close as possible, within a maximum of 30 days. Specific currency and performance standards apply to all levels. All required equipment is included.
Once you have successfully passed all of your coach jumps, have taken the USPA A-License written exam and a packing class with an FAA certified rigger, you will graduate from the program and become an A-Licensed skydiver!
