AFF (Accelerated FreeFall) course
AFF (Accelerated FreeFall) is an intense and adrenaline-rich course, where already the first jump takes you to freefall from an altitude of 4,000 meters. The student jumps out of the plane and opens the parachute independently, but two instructors accompany the student in freefall for safety. A modern steerable ram-air parachute is used on all jumps. After passing 7 jumps (levels) of an AFF course, the student has the right to jump solo.
The price for an AFF course with one jump is 329€, levels 2-3 are 190€ per jump, levels 4-7 are 130€ per jump. A full course (theory course + 7 jumps) is 1299€; a discounted price of 1099€ applies if you pay for your full course up front.
Requirements for the student
- At least 15 years of age. Students below 18 years of age must present written consent from a parent or a guardian.
- Weight between 50 kg and 105 kg.
- Sufficient physical fitness to be able to maintain a firm body position in freefall.
- The student may not suffer from medical conditions that may cause uncontrolled behaviour (such as sudden loss of conscientiousness, seizures etc.). In case of any questions please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

The first beginners’ course in Estonian is scheduled on the 9th of May and from there on every Tuesday until the 12th of September (with the exception of June 20th and 27th).
Beginners’ courses in English are held once a month on Fridays (May 19th, June 9th, July 14th, August 11th and September 1st).
Before the jump
The course begins with a theory course (ca 4 hours, taking place each Tuesday from May to September from 6 pm to 10 pm at Skydive Estonia’s club rooms at Türi st 10c, Tallinn). The theory course is followed by an exam and a practical exercise (ca 2 hours, taking place each Thursday at the same location, or at a different time by prior agreement with your instructor).
AFF jump: exit altitude 4 km, freefall time ca 50 sec, landing wiht a steerable ram-air parachute. During the jump, the student does everything on his or her own, but two experienced instructors accompany the student in freefall for safety.
We jump at the Rapla airfield on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays (weather permitting).
After the jump
After the first jump you may, if you wish, continue right away with the next levels fo the AFF course.
After passing AFF level 7, the student gains the right to jump sole in controlled conditions. Skydiving education continues with different maneuvers in freefall and under canopy, group jumps, packing the canopy etc. As you gain more experience, you will be able to try larger formations, new body positions in freefall (freeflying), jumping with a camera, flying a wingsuit and so forth. It is also possible to obtain an international FAI skydiving license which will allow you to jump anywhere in the world.
