If you want to experience the adventure of your lifetime, our Accelerated Freefall (AFF) training system is the way to go. For many new jumpers that have previously been on a tandem skydive, the adventure is too heart stopping to want to quit there. Instead, you think that maybe you would like to become a licensed skydiver with the training and skill to jump whenever you want. Skydiving Near Atlanta is here to help you begin your adventure by developing your skydiving skills to a competent level. We want you to be able to confidently skydive from anywhere in America. An Accelerated Freefall program would provide you with the opportunity to make a solo skydive under your own canopy. It's an adventure like no other! And you can skydive unobstructed and untethered to a jumpmaster. All you need is a United States Parachute Association "A license," and you are free to make solo skydives at any United States dropzone without supervision. How cool is that?
Becoming a certified skydiver is a tremendous achievement that not only assists in overcoming your fears but also connects you with smart and intriguing people from from all over Georgia. Not only will you train to freefall with a group, you will be instructed how to properly pack your parachute. Take pride in knowing that you can competently skydive solo from great altitudes and even advance with more education.
The AFF course is very demanding physically and psychologically, so you will be wanted to meet the following criteria for admittance:
Expect to be debriefed throughout your first level, trained at the dropzone, and then taken into the air for functional training. The first level is planned to provide students the chance to get into the air quickly yet safely; you will be taught some of the tricks of the trade to use in the course of your first jump. Our helpful instructors will take the time to teach you on proper body positions, how to release the canopy and making your way to the ground. Once the trainer is certain that you have learned how to safely jump and land, you will have your first AFF class skydive accompanied by two trainers who will tweak and perfect your form in the air. Many people will be daunted by the attention to detail of the trainers as you pass through the levels but your safety is our staff's primary concern. You should be getting better at manipulating your movements during the skydives. Eventually you will be ready to master some of the advanced skydiving tactics like gliding and backflips, and you'll learn...
When you've reached level 6 you are ready for your first solo skydive. This occurs after a final examination of sorts. Your instructors need to confirm that you have the skills required. Your jump master will watch you from a distance and evaluate how well you control your movements, observe safety protocol, deploy the chute and land; if you pass, he will supply you with a certificate of successful completion. With all said and done, you will have made at least 25 jumps and completed all criteria to get your USPA 'A' license.
"USPA" stands for the "United States Parachute Association" which is a large organization that helps standardize instruction methods and issues skydiving licenses. They issue skydiving licenses ranging from an "A level" (earned after 25 jumps) to a "D level" (earned after 500 jumps) and express an escalating level of success and skill.
