Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) course has nine (9) stages to become a qualified skydiver towards achieving your A license. We recommend SA Skydiving at Langhorne Creek to instruct you through the AFF course. Most people hand over $300 or maybe more for a tandem and are no closer to being a solo jumper. The AFF course has nine stages. The course is offered stage by stage. Begin this way and you are on your way to becoming a qualified skydiver.

South Australian Sports Parachute Council (SASPC). Membership of the SASPC provides a subsidy towards completed B license jumps. 
Australian Parachute Federation (APF) is the peak body for skydiving in Australia. When you commence your AFF course, you will be issued with an APF membership number.
