Tandem Skydiving vs. Accelerated Freefall

The decision to dive from an airplane thousands of feet in the air is not one that you'll make lightly. If you're a typical person you'll find yourself imagining the different scenarios of a jump and asking yourself if you're even in your right mind at all. But we live in a society of daredevils, and nothing in life is as exciting as experiencing the anticipation of danger with the safety net of modern innovation and experienced skydivers. So you've made up your mind to try tandem skydiving or AFF (Accelerated Freefall). Which one do you choose?

Tandem Skydiving

Tandem skydiving is the safest way for first time skydivers to get a taste of skydiving without the responsibility of learning how to dive by themselves. You will be instructed before the airplane ride on safety techniques and tandem etiquette, so you'll know how to get the most out of your time in the sky without putting the trainer in danger.

Tandem skydiving offers the same sensation of falling from the sky minus the worry of managing everything by yourself. Instead of flying on your own, you're harnessed to a highly-trained instructor with safety at the forefront. Now, while you won't undergo the kind of instruction you can expect with our AFF program, there is some training involved. You'll learn the fundamentals of safety protocols and on the best ways to safely tandem jump with the instructor to avoid putting yourself or the instructor at risk. Tandem skydiving is the best choice for those who want the sensation of free falling minus the responsibility and in depth training.

Accelerated Freefall Course (AFF)

If you're a true thrill seeker at heart, then the name itself sounds exciting, doesn't it? This program is offered to teach the student exactly how to do what it requires to safely descent from the sky by themselves.

From A to Z, we ensure that you are 100% ready making that first jump before going out the door into the sky. There is no pressure to complete the program in a specified timespan. In step one you will learn the fundamentals of the Accelerated Freefall Program, as well as undergo extensive training on:

  • the best way to jump from the airplane properly
  • emergency protocol
  • how to deploy the emergency reserve chute and critical thinking in a stressed environment
  • regulating your body through the jump

If you're determined to learn, but feel as if you're not 100% ready and need more assistance with A, B, or C, you can keep working until you are proficient. If you undergo the program, and still don't feel like you're ready, or feel like bailing. That's okay, too. Don't feel bad if you 'd rather do the tandem jump. Once you've properly completed the course, you'll become a recognized certified professional skydiver. You can then share your certificate with friends and family, and feel proud in your accomplishment as it was no easy task. Because let's face it, not everybody can work up the nerve to carry out what you've just accomplished.

Making the Decision

Regardless if you choose to try and complete our AFF course and meet the criteria to become a professionally acknowledged skydiver, or you just want to feel the wind rush past your body in a tandem skydiving experience, the important decision is to get out and make that reservation to give it a try. You won't know how far you want to go if you never take the initial step. Give us a call and schedule your skydiving adventure right now!
