Accelerated Freefall Courses.
It doesn’t matter , if you have never been skydiving before or you’ve just completed a tandem skydive then our AFF ( Accelerated Freefall ) courses will be tailored for you . Soon you could be skydiving solo in Las Vegas from over 15,000ft.. We will make it easy.
Ease into it in ground school
The ground school is designed for complete beginners. In easy to follow modules your expert tutor will guide you through each aspect of skydiving. You will learn about :
- How your skydiving equipment works.
- Basic freefall safety and techniques.
- Flying your parachute as pilot in command.
The ground school is logically broken down into easy to digest sections with rest periods. The ground school is fun and a chance to get to know your instructor.
Onto the Skydiving !
With the AFF groundwork behind you, you’ll be confident and ready to take flight. At this point you might like to get into the wind tunnel with your instructor.
This module is broken down into logical phases.
- Basic body flight - stability and altitude awareness.
- Advanced body flight, how to turn and move around.
- In flight "tricks" like loops and barrel rolls.
By the time you get to your graduation level you will be smiling from ear to ear. More importantly, you will be skydiving safely, on your own, confidently and with an impressive array of newly acquired skills.
Flying your parachute comfortably
It can be a little daunting at first opening your parachute and looking down at your intended landing point..." How do I fly to there" ? We are here to help you advance as "pilot in command". We will cover areas such as:
- Checking your parachute and equipment.
- Principles of safety.
- Navigation techniques.
- Landing safely with accuracy.
In no time you will be picking your intended landing point and logging "Stand up landing on target" :)

After the AFF course let us keep up the learning. Your first stop will be the full A license which qualifies you to skydive with others. The Gold package takes it out of the park by teaching you how to take your place in the sky with your friends. It covers advanced areas such as :
- Safety around others in the sky.
- How to move around the sky relative to others

- How often do beginner courses start ?
Courses start every Monday. We have limited spaces to ensure we can give each of our valued students the attention they deserve. If you need to start on a different day get in touch with us.
- Should I book the Basic or full package ?
This depends on you and your objectives. If you are sure you wish to become a fully license skydiver then the Gold package is the one for you… If you want to try out skydiving solo then the Bronze is the better skydiving pacakge to try.. You can always upgrade later on at any time.
- Is learning to skydive Scary ?
Of course ! If you werent a little nervous we would be for you 🙂 Skydiving isnt the preserve of NASA candidates nor is it a round of golf.. We are skydivers, we remember the butterflies of learning , they are part of the reward. We can help overcome any nerves you might have.

In a word yes. Our GoJump Shuttles are constantly moving between downtown Las Vegas and our skydiving campus. Freefall Uni students have complimentary passes for these shuttles
