THE COURSES

Accelerated Freefall (also known as AFF) is recognised worldwide as the best way to learn to skydive. Skydive the Ranch’s skydiving school offers a high standard of instruction, teaching you to become a skydiver with no previous experience required.

The course starts with a full day of ground-training (theory) that will teach you everything you need to know to complete your first skydive from 11000ft.

DURING THE FIRST JUMP COURSE YOU WILL LEARN:

  • To check and fit your own equipment
  • To exit the aircraft
  • Safety procedures
  • To open your parachute
  • To deal with emergency situations
  • To control your parachute
  • To recognise the Drop Zone
  • To land your parachute (initial landings are with radio assistance from instructors on the ground)

Once successfully completed, students are ready for their first skydive.

The AFF course consists of ten levels (one jump per level) as follows:

  • 1-3 you will be accompanied by two instructors.
  • 4-7 you will then have just one instructor by your side.
  • 8 -10 you will fly solo.

Each level of the course includes a fixed set of manoeuvres that you must perform before you can move on to the next one.

After that, you are an AFF graduate. You can then proceed to achieve various license levels and specialize in various disciplines of the sport.

You must be at least 16 years old (subject to parental consent) to attend an AFF skydive course at Skydive the Ranch.

Static-Line Parachuting is an alternative method of starting your Skydive journey. This course is designed to give you your first taste of what it’s like to exit an aircraft flying at a minimum of 3500ft above the ground. Your Static-Line parachute is opened automatically as you exit the aircraft, but it is up to you to then fly and land your own parachute. No previous experience is required, and it takes just one day of training to prepare you for your first jump.

All the jumps in this program are solo, however you will be supervised by an instructor on exit and guided by one on landing.

During the Static-line course, you will learn:

  • To check and fit your own equipment
  • To exit the aircraft
  • Safety procedures
  • To deal with emergency situations
  • To control your parachute
  • To recognize the Drop Zone
  • To land your parachute (initial landings are with radio assistance from instructors on the ground)

Our courses normally run over weekends, commencing either Friday evening (18h00) or Saturday morning (08h00) at Skydive the Ranch. Weather depending, you will do your first jump on the either the Saturday or Sunday.
