On an Accelerated Freefall (AFF) jump, first-time students learn to skydive with their own parachute system, experiencing the thrill of freefall with two instructors at their side—not attached to them. AFF requires four to five hours of intense ground instruction, including learning body flight maneuvers and hand signals that instructors use to coach the student as they fly alongside. The instructors hold onto the student's harness until the student deploys his own parachute. He then makes a solo canopy descent, with radio instruction to help guide him to a safe landing.
