AFF Level 6 - 1 Instructor

In AFF Level 6 you will climb outside of the airplane and exit linked to your instructor, working on exit presentation. You will then practice moving in a straight line (tracking).

Course Objectives

The objective of this level is to teach you how to perform a linked floating exit with another skydiver. In this case, it will be your instructor. Linked floating exits are your first exposure to formation skydiving. As you progress as a skydiver it will become more familiar and fun. Tracking is also a basic yet important skill learned by novice skydivers. Tracking is the technique of assuming a body position that allows you to move horizontally while freefalling.

You will also practice turns on this dive two 90 degree turns and at least one 180 degree turn before reaching 7,000 feet. You will wave off and pull at 5,000 feet and then practice brake turns and full toggle turns while under canopy. Another element to practice will be right of way and canopy avoidance in the landing area.
