Progressive Freefall (PFF) / Accelerated Freefall (AFF):

In this method, from a minimum altitude of 7,500' (commonly higher than 10,500') you will exit the aircraft with two CSPA / USPA certified instructors holding you. They will assist and evaluate your freefall performance. You are given the opportunity to activate your main parachute. If you choose not "to pull it yourself", they are there to assist you with parachute deployment. A solo canopy descent follows the freefall and you will be guided to landing via a CSPA / USPA certified instructor. Training prior to your first jump will take most of the day, approximately 6-8 hours. You should check with your chosen school to see if First Jump PFF training is available.

Instructor Assisted Deployment (IAD):

You get to jump solo from a minimum altitude of 3,000'. A CSPA / USPA certified instructor will assist the deployment of your main parachute. Your freefall will be from two to five seconds. You will perform basic parachute manoeuvring while being guided in for landing by another CSPA / USPA certified instructor. Training prior to your first jump will take appoximately 4-5 hours. You should check with your chosen school to see if IAD training is available.

Static Line Deployment (SL):

In this method, you will exit from an aircraft under direct supervision of a CSPA / USPA certified instructor, from a minimum altitude of 3,000' attached to a line. When this line stretches, it deploys your main parachute for you. Similar in fashion to "military jumping". You will have the opportunity to perform basic parachute manoeuvring while being guided in for landing, by another CSPA / USPA certified instructor. Training prior to your first jump will take approximately 4-5 hours. You should check with your chosen school to see if SL training is available.
