AFF Progression Overview

Ground School

Our AFF skydiving course starts with 4-6 hours of ground training. During this training, you’ll learn everything you need to know about skydiving, from how to fly your body in freefall to how your equipment functions and what to do if things don’t go as you expect. Our 4-6 hour ground school includes 2 flights in the indoor skydiving simulator located onsite here at Skydive Perris. 

AFF Levels Of Progression

There are 7 levels of the AFF course. During each level, you are required to demonstrate the skills of body flight and canopy control. You’ll be assessed on every level before you can progress to the next one. These levels are set by the governing body for parachuting, the USPA, and all students of the AFF method complete these levels before achieving qualified status.

For the first few jumps, you’ll be supported by two instructors who hold you in the air and assist you in your parachute deployment if necessary. Prior to level 3, you’ll spend 10 minutes practicing freefall maneuvers in our indoor wind tunnel, this is equivalent to TEN skydives! As you progress, you’ll move on to just one instructor. Finally, you’ll complete a series of solo jumps where you are free to practice your skills on your own in freefall.

Tips For Your Jump

Wear comfortable clothing for the weather that day. Jeans are not always a great idea as they can be stiff, and you’ll need some flexibility. Shorts, gym clothing, yoga pants, and sweat pants are the most comfortable.
Please wear, or bring sneakers. Sandals, heels, cowboy boots, and boots with a heel will not be allowed. We do have some shoes here at the facility to lend out, but you’ll have to buy socks from the gear store, and we may not have your size. So remember to bring your sneakers!
Unfortunately, you will not be able to make a skydive if you forget your ID. Student ID’s do NOT count as a valid form of identification. ONLY valid government ID’s, showing your Date Of Birth, will be accepted. If you do forget your ID, get someone to fax or email you a copy before you get here in order to save time.
Unfortunately, we do not allow anyone over 240 lbs. to make a skydive at our facility. We weigh EVERYONE on the same scale here at the school, and our scale must read under 240 pounds for you to make a skydive that day.
