Learn to Skydive

The AFF (Accelerated Free Fall) Skydiving and Parachuting Course consists of a minimum of 9 AFF training jumps. This is the modern method of learning to skydive.

  • All training jumps are up to 14,000ft
  • Skydiving techniques and canopy handling skills are introduced on your first jump
  • You freefall for a minute
  • The freefall is followed by a four minute parachute ride
  • Then comes the landing

The AFF course is designed for beginners with no experience. All equipment is supplied. The course gives you the knowledge & skills necessary to become a qualified and certified skydiver, as laid down by the regulations of the Australian Parachute Federation. The course covers freefall skydiving and parachuting techniques with a particular emphasis on:

  • Freefall sequences
  • Body position
  • Safety
  • Parachute canopy flight
  • Landings
  • FUN

We offer student training seven days a week at our Toogoolawah drop zone in Queensland, weather permitting. Advanced booking is essential for those wishing to participate in an AFF course. Please contact us for details on booking an AFF course.

AFF Packages

Students participating in an AFF course can either pay per jump as they go or purchase a course package. Skydive Ramblers offers several packages at different price points, all of which offer a discount off of the per jump price. Below you will find a summary of the different AFF course packages on offer at Skydive Ramblers.

If you commit to a package, we commit back to you at least 3 jumps a day, even if you are the only student. However, packages do not have to be done in a set time. The days indicated are the minimum number of days it will take you to complete the jumps in the package.

Skydiving is a weather dependent sport, please allow extra days if possible

For prices, please see the pricing table at the bottom of the page.

As a SCUBA Instructor, I'm watchful for safety and professionalism in other extreme sports and the staff, buildings, equipment, plane and even other customers at Ramblers all gave me a feeling of safety and comfort in addition to being genuinely welcoming as newcomer to their sport. If you haven't been and have been wanting to skydive - this is a GREAT place to start your newest addiction. : )
