Student Program – Accelerated Free Fall

Want to push yourself to the next level and try a sport that’ll test you in some pretty fun ways? Skydive California has a student program where you can learn to skydive in California to become a licensed skydiver.

We recommend at least one tandem skydive before embarking on this journey, so you will be able to have a sense of what you will be getting yourself into.

We start with an extensive ground school that lasts for 4-6 hours. This will cover every aspect of skydiving and prepare you to make an assisted jump under the direct supervision of certified USPA AFF instructors.   Once you are finished with the ground school you will do your first jump that day (weather permitting).

The AFF program can take anywhere from 4 days to 4 weeks.  After completing the ground school on your first day, you can come whenever you would like to complete the rest of the AFF jumps (Categories A-E).  There is no exact amount of time it takes to finish the AFF program.  It depends on how quickly you progress, weather, etc.

Once you graduate from the AFF program (Categories A-E) you are cleared to jump solo.  To earn your A license, you will need to reach a minimum of 25 jumps including both solo and coached jumps.

For more information about our AFF program or general information on how to learn to skydive please give us a call at 209-835-7474 or fill out the contact form below.
