Accelerated Freefall Skydiving Course
Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is a program designed for each individual to turn you into a safe and independent skydiver.
Static Line Skydiving Course
Static Line training is the “traditional” method of learning how to skydive. On your first jump – and at least the next seven – a static line attached to the aeroplane automatically opens your parachute.
Tandem Skydiving is a first class way for you to experience the thrill of Freefall and the serenity of a four-minute parachute ride with a minimum of training.
