You can begin the ACCELERATED FREEFALL (AFF) program at Skydive Suffolk after completing your first tandem jump. Training for your first AFF jump takes approximately 4-5 hours and includes aircraft procedures, the opening sequence of a parachute, emergency procedures, landing techniques, and practical exercises in body positions for exits and freefall. Following ground training, two instructors will guide you through the exit, freefall, deployment, and landing processes. After completing the first jump course, you will receive one on one instruction as you work towards earning your USPA A-License (minimum 25 jumps).
Share your skydive with family and friends by capturing the experience with photos and/or video! Photo/video package available for $125. Photos only available for $75.
