Learn how to Skydive at Skydive Hawaii's® on-site Skydiving School!
The Advanced Freefall Program is a structured skydiving course that has been continuously developed since 1984 and exclusive to Skydive Hawaii®. It is the most progressive and complete instructional program in the world. Although there are different training programs being used around the world, AFP instructs where other programs end short. AFP has inspired USPA’s requirements for self-supervision thus producing more competent and confident skydiving students. AFP graduates have excelled in all aspects of the sport.
Before AFP, the student completes the objectives of the Tandem Progression. These jumps introduce flight planning, freefall body positions, dive flow, altitude awareness, heading awareness, deployment procedures, and canopy flight skills. The AFP Transition class begins the solo freefall information in a detailed 6-hour class. In the transition class one is taught solo freefall emergency procedures, hand signals, Golden Rules #1, 2, 3,and 4, exit and freefall techniques, high performance canopy flight and landing skills. The first AFP jump is designed similar dive flow to the initial tandem jump.
AFP allows students to progress at their own rate in a supportive rather than stressful curriculum. This style of teaching caters to students of all ability levels by providing individualized attention. The AFP supervised environment enables each student to demonstrate sufficient and competent skills for equipment inspection, free-fall, canopy flight and packing throughout the 18 level program.
