Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is a training system for those who are keen to complete the course to A Licence in a short period of time. Once you are an A Licence skydiver, you will be equipped with the skills to jump anywhere in the world.

AFF is an intensive course and is faster than alternative systems. This course can be completed in 7 days weather permitting.

Day 1

Your journey to becoming a licensed skydiver starts with your training for your AFF Level 1 skydive. The training for your Level 1 skydive consists of an all-day ground school, and jumping with two instructors from 15,000ft. This is usually split over 2 days. On day 1 you will arrive at the dropzone at 8am to meet your instructor.

During your ground school training you will be introduced to the parachute equipment, body positioning, deploying your parachute, landing your parachute and emergency drills. The day will then end with a written examination and the instructor will then update you as to when day 2 will take place.

Day 2

On day 2, you will meet your instructor at 8am for refresher training.

You will then get kitted up ready for your Level 1 skydive (weather dependent). Your level 1 skydive will consist of Jumping from 15,000ft with two instructors holding you on either side. You will demonstrate a stable body position, monitor your altitude and pull your own parachute, then land it yourself.

After landing you will receive a jump debrief from one of your instructors and discuss progression.

Progression Levels

Following on from instructor recommendation after level 1, levels will consist of:

  • Level 2-3 – Still with two instructors, they will start letting you go in freefall until you’re really skydiving by yourself whilst in air coaching you.
  • Level 4-5 – Now you will only need one instructor with you. You will learn how to turn and control your heading (direction).
  • Level 6 – You will be exiting without an instructor holding you although they will still jump with you. You will learn backloops and tracking (moving forward in the air).
  • Level 7 – You will show all the skills you’ve learnt including turns, backloops and tracking.
  • Level 8 – This consists of jumping from 6000ft with a short delay before pulling your parachute, to simulate an unplanned exit.
  • Consolidation Jump – You will need to complete a minimum of 10 consolidation jumps. Here you can jump out of the plane without an instructor and have the freedom to try things in freefall. After all these jumps are completed you will be an A Licence skydiver.

Full brief and de-brief on each level will be assisted by instructors’ video.

Due to its intensive nature AFF is at its best when you can commit a continuous period of time to the whole training. Substantial breaks in training can often impact your performance and progression, which can raise additional training/re-jump costs. We require you attend at least once every 4 weeks.

As skydiving is weather dependent, for student jumpers the weather conditions have to be a certain requirement. This can delay jumps.

Form 115C is a self declaration form to let us know you are fit and healthy. If you have a medical condition, you MUST download and print Form 115D get it signed and stamped by your doctor and bring it with you on the day.

Form 115c – Solo student declaration form
Form 115d – Solo student medical advice form

Please contact us for more information.

Jump Requirements

Age is just a number, although we have to start somewhere!
To do a tandem skydive with us, you will need to be at least 16 years old and have your parent or legal guardian’s permission until age 18. The upper age limit is 55.

With skydiving, weight is essential
Nobody likes to talk about their weight, but with skydiving, it is essential for your and your instructors safety that we have to work within certain parameters.

The maximum allowable weight for any course is 13 stone for females and 15 stone for males, but body mass index will also be taken into account. We appreciate that some people will fall outside of these limits, but are still fit and active, so if this is the case, please call the office to discuss your individual requirements.

Please don’t be offended if you are weighed on the day. It is a requirement of all of our jumpers, and you will be asked to step on the scales prior to jumping.

Essential forms you MUST fill out and bring with you on the day:

Form 115c – Solo student declaration form
Form 115d – Solo student medical advice form


AFF LEVEL 1 £350
AFF LEVEL 2 £255
AFF LEVEL 3 £255

Photography Packages

Freefall Photography
You’ve got your skydive booked, capture the experience forever
So, you’ve got your skydive booked and want to know how you can capture this once in a lifetime experience?

We know how important it is for you to be able to share this amazing adventure with your friends & family, and of course, to update that all important new profile picture!

Here at Black Knights, we have two options for you to document your day. Read on below to see which one suits you best.

DVD & Stills Package
Get one of our professional freefall photographers

This package costs £120. With this option, you will be personally assigned one of our highly trained, professional freefall photographers.

You’ll meet with them as your instructor takes you to get kitted up for your jump. They’ll then have a chat to you on the ground, with your family & friends, before flying up to altitude with you, documenting everything on the way! When it’s your turn to jump, your photographer will climb onto the outside of the plane, and fly with you using their awesome skills to record and photograph you simultaneously as you fall with style through the clouds! Once your instructor deploys your parachute, your photographer will capture the opening, then fly away under their own parachute, ready to meet you on the ground to encapsulate that massive smile on your face as you touch down back to earth.

Your footage will then be edited in a matter of minutes, so by the time you’ve finished trying to find the words to tell your supporters how breath taking the experience was, your DVD will be ready to watch, and take home with a full set of over 100 high quality photographs to share, post, print and tweet as you please!

Handycam Package
Why not get up close and personal for the ultimate selfie?!

This package costs £95. Handycam does exactly what it says on the tin. It is a hand mounted camera worn by your instructor, to give you an alternative view of your skydive whilst taking both video and stills simultaneously. Your instructor will capture everything from the moment you are kitted up, to the second you touch back down.

Handycam focuses more on you and your facial expressions, in comparison to the DVD & Stills option, which will also give you a wider range of angles and scenery.

The great benefit of Handycam is that you will be able to include the canopy ride and your reactions as you glide down to earth. Remember, it records sound also, so watch those swear words if you’re going to be showing it to Grandma when you get home!

Spoilt for choice? The VIP Package
Combine all of the footage to create something truly memorable of your day

This package costs £190. Why not treat yourself to the VIP Package and combine both options together to get the best of both worlds?! After all, you’re only going to do it once… right?

Our editing technicians will be able to combine all of the footage to create something truly memorable of your day.
