Step into the world of adventure and learn to skydive solo with the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) first jump course.
This training program is a combination of ground school (theory class) and 8 skydives.
Taught at Skydive Dubai Desert Campus, the world’s largest skydiving school, you will first complete a First Jump Course (FJC), in which you will learn how to make your very first skydive.
The First Jump Course (FJC) covers topics such as basic safety procedures, equipment, body position in freefall, canopy deployment and control, aircraft procedures, and landing. Overall it takes about 6-8 hours.
Once completed, the next step is to board the plane, ascend to 12,500 feet AGL and - accompanied by 2 instructors - exit the aircraft!
The AFF skydiving course is designed to teach you how to skydive efficiently and safely using the very latest training techniques, and it has been used with great success to teach thousands of people to skydive all over the world.
There are 8 levels to the AFF course - each consisting of a skydive and a set of manoeuvres that you must complete before moving on to the next level. The first 3 levels are conducted with two instructors, and the remaining levels are done with one instructor.
After successful completion of the 8-jump AFF course, you will have the skills to skydive on your own under ‘self-supervision’.

The next step is get your A licence and jump with others!
The A licence is the gateway that enables a relatively new skydiver to really get involved in all the sport has to offer. A USPA A licence is an internationally recognised certification that allows the holder to jump at drop zones around the world, and jump with other licence holders.
Persons holding a USPA A licence may jump without supervision, pack their own main parachute, engage in group jumps, and perform water jumps
To obtain a USPA A licence, a skydiver must have completed a minimum of 25 skydives, successfully passed all the requirements on the A licence proficiency card, and passed the written and oral A licence exam.
Have you ever wanted to trade the office for the drop zone, and become a professional skydiver?
