Accelerated Freefall

Accelerated Freefall (AFF)

 

AEROGRAD KOLOMNA IS EUROPE’S LARGEST AND BEST-KNOWN DROPZONE!

 

An individual skydiving training program Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is the most exciting and safest skydiving course to date. AFF uses the most advanced techniques and equipment. Our AFF course will turn anyone into a true skydiver!

All AFF jumps are performed from an altitude of 3,500-4,000 meters using a special training system equipped with square parachutes (main and emergency) and an automatic activation device.

It seems that the AFF training system is more complicated than previous courses. However, it is a known fact that a beginner learns the correct freefall position much faster and more effectively, because each jump is accompanied by experienced instructors.

The long freefall enables the student to make the most of each jump.

All your jumps can be videotaped for you and the instructors to analyze and also for the sake of good memories. After the landing, the student and instructors go over the video to thoroughly analyze the jump, pinpoint all mistakes and get ready for the following jump. The Moscow AFF course includes a very intensive land training program under the watchful eyes of the instructors.

Aerograd Kolomna, the Aviation and Technical Sports Club of DOSAAF Russia, is the best skydiving club in Russia; a flight school and a campus with developed infrastructure that offers infinite opportunities to families and corporate clients.

Aerograd is located on the bank of the River Oka close by the picturesque ancient town of Kolomna and about 100 kilometers from Moscow. We are only an hour and a half/two-hour drive from Moscow. You can reach us by taking the M5 Moscow–Chelyabinsk federal highway. Aerograd has an area of 250 hectares and has a capacity of up to 1,000 guests.

The Korobcheevo Airfield is designed to accommodate class 4 aircrafts, including the An-2, An-28, L-410, Yak-52, and Yak-18t airplanes, the Mi-2, Mi-8 helicopters, and very light aircrafts (except autogiros, aerostatic balloons and airships), receive and dispatch the said aircraft performing airfield, en-route and international flights, daytime VFR flights, and airfield and en-route daytime and nighttime VFR flights for helicopters.

 

SKYDIVING SKILLS ARE MASTERED ON THE GROUND

 

Course Description

There are seven levels in our AFF course:

During the first three levels, a learner gains the key freefall skills. They include the skill to exit an aircraft, control your body during the freefall, focus, use skydiving devices, and deploy the parachute. A learner gains these skills through active practice and direct control by instructors while in the air.

The next four AFF levels are designed to further develop skills and techniques of maneuvering during the freefall. A learner gains the skills of closing in an instructor, making 360-degree turns, front and back loops, and tracking, jump planning and awareness during the freefall. Pre-jump preparation is focused on safety. The achievement of a new level based on accomplishments rather than a number of completed jumps.

 

PHASE 1 "FIRST SKILLS"

  • Level 1: All-round on-ground training, a tandem jump with one AFF instructor, a jump with two AFF instructors. The first level comprises theoretical training, initial skills of body control during the freefall, focusing, altimeter use, parachute deployment, canopy control, and first solo landing with radio contact, review and debriefing.
  • Level 2: A jump with two AFF instructors. The second level comprises pre-jump training, practice of freefall positions, and development of parachute deployment skills, landing with radio contact, jump review and correction of mistakes, and preparation for the next jump.
  • Level 3: A jump with two AFF instructors. The third level will teach to maintain the right direction during the freefall, control legs and maintain the body arch, independently deploy and control the canopy, and land on the designated spot. The level also covers the examination of the jump and identification and rectification of mistakes.

 

PHASE 2 “MANEUVERING”

  • Level 4: A jump with one AFF instructor. The objective of Level 4 is to train controlled turns of at least 90 degrees, forward movement during the freefall, wave off techniques, landing within 50 meters of the dead center, debriefing and rectification of mistakes.
  • Level 5: A jump with one AFF instructor. The fifth level is focused on controlled 360-degree turns, tracking after each turn and body control in all directions.
  • Level 6: A jump with one AFF instructor. Level 6 comprises a solo exit, stable fall, a back loop and return to the initial position, horizontal break off, landing within 25 meters of the dead center, correct landing (breaking and touchdown).
  • Level 7: Independent preparation for a jump. The jump with one AFF instructor. The objective of the jump is to practice routines during all phases, including the dive, stable freefall, front loop and return to the initial position, right and left 360 degree turns, horizontal break off, wave off techniques, and canopy deployment, landing within 25 meters of the dead center, display of safe canopy control techniques. 

 

PHASE 3 “GRANTING A LICENCE”

The level is consisted of at least eight jumps, including:

  • at least four jumps with an instructor;
  • at least four solo jumps, including one from 1,500 meters;
  • jump sequence depends on the instructor. It is advised to alternate solo jumps and jumps with instructors;
  • deployment altitude during the initial jumps is 1,300 meters and can be further decreased to 1,200 meters (1,100 meters).

AFF 8.2 jumps with an instructor

  • the main difference of the AFF 8.2 course from the regular AFF Levels 1-7 is that a learner gears the routines to the freefall performed by an instructor, who serves as a reference point;
  • at least two even horizontal level jumps;
  • at least two jumps practicing closing on the instructor.

AFF 8.1 solo jumps

  • NOTE: a learner performs their first solo jump and are never left without control on the ground: load manifest, mission identification, ground check; on board: exit sequence and interval; and landing monitoring.

 

A successful completion of Level 8 permits solo jumps and grants “Beginner Skydiver” status.

Those who have completed an AFF course are not allowed to jump in groups, except for jumps with experienced skydivers having the club’s clearance or any Aerograd instructor. This rule is applicable until a learner achieves “Category A” and does not depend on the number of jumps.
