Beginner courses SKYDIVING SCHOOL

LEARN TO SKYDIVE

Skydive Empuriabrava is Europe's biggest and most experienced skydiving school, featuring international top-level instructors, latest training techniques and student equipment.
To learn how to skydive on your own requires some knowledge and practical skills that you will learn during your AFF (Accelerated Free Fall) course throughout combined theory classes and coaching in the air. The lessons include knowledge about skydiving equipment, freefall positions, how and at what altitude to deploy your parachute, emergency procedures and how to fly and safely land your parachute, just to name a few.

Our skydive school is open all year round. You can book a course individually or as a group if you want to do the course with your friends. Our instructors speak several languages.

Feel free to contact us for further details.

CHOOSE YOUR COURSE

At Skydive Empuriabrava you can choose the course that suits you best.

AFF COURSE (Accelerated Free Fall course): The international top stantard Skydive Course.
AFF+ COURSE: Including Indoor Skydiving - Wind tunnel lessons at Windoor Empuriabrava, located next to Skydive Empuriabrava.
IFF+ COURSE (Introduction to Free Fall course): This course is for you if you just want to try skydiving with a student parachute, accompanied by our instructors and get a first introduction into our sport.







AFF COURSE

Accelerated Free Fall course, the international top stantard Skydive Course

The course takes approximately 5-7 days, depending on weather conditions. You can complete the whole course in one go or over few weekends.

The AFF course is internationally recognised. When you graduate you will therefore be able to jump not only at Skydive Empuriabrava, but also anywhere else in the world.

#
#

The training at Skydive Empuriabrava is completely personalised to be able to provide you with the best service. As a start you will attend the theory classes and do practical exercises on the ground.

#

After completing ground school, you fly up an altitude of 4,000 metres for your first AFF Tandem Skydive. During this jump you will practice first exercises in free fall and under open parachute, together with your instructor.

#
#

All set! You are ready to start your 7 levels of AFF in the sky. On level 1 you will jump with your own student rental parachute, safely secured by two instructors, who will assist you in free fall. They stabilize you and correct your body position while you practice your exercises during free fall. Once your parachute is open, an instructor will contact you via radio (the device is attached to your helmet). The instructor will help and guide you to safely land your student parachute as you have learned already during ground school.

#

On level 2 to 3 during AFF you will continue jump with your two instructors, who will secure you in free fall and correct your position while you do your exercises. As you gain confidence and free fall experience, you will observe that they progressively let go of you.

#
#

From level 4 to 7, your skills to fly stable in free fall will have grown so you will be confident to jump with only one instructor. Your instructor will guide your progress personally as you learn how to do turns, loops and tracks, until you graduate after AFF level 7.

#

Throughout the 7 AFF levels, we will record the exercises you do in freefall on video. While viewing the video during your personal de-briefing after every jump, your instructors can analyse and review your progress extremely thoroughly, thus sharpening your learning curve significantly. You will receive the videos on USB card, which is a fantastic reminder of this great experience.

#
