AFF Instructor Course with

An Accelerated Free Fall Instructor is the most advanced skydiving instructor rating.

Students are dependent on their AFF instructor while gaining control and altitude awareness while in freefall. AFF Instructors must assist students as they learn new maneuvers, (i.e. pull sequence, stable freefall, turns, forward motion, track, instability drills, etc.). Candidates interested in obtaining this rating should have a solid control of their own freefall skills and awareness and will be tested on both flying skills and teaching abilities during the course. In addition to freefall skills, AFF Instructors must teach tasks regarding canopy flight, gear and equipment, spotting & aircraft, in-depth emergency procedures and the rules and regulations from the SIM.​​​​​​​

Candidate Requirements:

  • Must be over 18
  • Must be a USPA member
  • Hold a USPA Coach or Instructor rating from another discipline (IAD, SL, Tandem)
  • Have a USPA C-license. We can help with USPA License application if candidate has foreign license.
