ACCELERATED FREEFALL COURSE (AFF) - 9 JUMPS - This course is as it says - a fast way of learning the freefall manouvres, by having instructors with you in freefall. The Course starts with the First Jump Course and TAF jump (Tandem Assisted Freefall jump).
PROS: You have the suport of the instructors in freefall including their smiling faces and their ability to physically help you with your body position and moves, which builds confidence and makes it interactive. AFF Students usually finish with a higher freefall skill level than Solo Course.
CONS: Not as many jumps for your money. Not as much canopy flight time or landings. Can get overloaded with the feeling of having too much to do and remember on each jumps. May have to repeat jumps.
AFF Course Completion Package is $2,699 BOOK NOW
SOLO SKYDIVING COURSE - 16 JUMPS - Skydive Ramblers Sunshine Coast have developed a 16-jump Course that combines the best of the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) & Static Line Couses. The course starts with a First Jump Course and a Tandem Orientation Jump. The next 4 jumps are Solo Parachute Jumps, then a high AFF jump, then introduces a new freefall manouvre on every subsequent jump.
PROS: Is a terrific combination of Solo and AFF. You get more jumps for your money. Much more canopy flight time and landings, usually finishing you with a higher skill level than on the AFF Course. Not as much to do or remember on each jump, which builds confidence quickly.
CONS: Can be a bit lonely in freefall sometimes (though we try to jump with you as much as possible at no extra charge. Usually freefall skills are not as polished as AFF.

Both Courses start with the FIRST JUMP COURSE. The First Jump Course is a full day of theory and ground training, and includes a Tandem jump (TAF jump for AFF Course students, or Tandem Orientation Jump for Solo Course Students). This Tandem jump is nothing like a regular beach tandem jump just for the fun, this tandem training jump is still fun, but moreso it is a hands on training jump with an instructor - to get familiar with the equipment (rig, parachutes, handles, steering toggles, radio comms); to get familiar with the opening sequence of the parachute and doing the opening count; to be able to perform all the parachute checks after the parachute opens and identity a good canopy or a malfunctioning canopy; to be able to locate the drop zone, the cross, the arrow and the wind indicators; to be able to follow the arrow and radio communications, and understand the concepts of upwind, downwind, flight plans and approaches; to get familiar with landing the parachute; and identifying off drop zone landing areas and the obstacles and hazards from above. First Jump Courses take a full day - 8am start and usually finishing up around 6pm, or later in summer. Get ready for a big day that is very interesting, informative and fun! (FJCs can also be done over two nights and one morning by appointment).

Because the First Jump Course is a full on day, students tend to be tired by the end of the day! And so we prefer to carry some of the Course and training over to the next day when you come back refreshed. The First Jump Course and all the training is geared towards getting you ready to jump your own equipment, so we like you to sleep on it and come back refreshed. We recommend signing up for the INTRODUCTION PACKAGE which includes the First Jump Course plus 3 jumps, over 2 days. This is the way to go about starting your skydiving journey.
Further, the 20-jump Addiction Package includes customised 1-on-1 coached jumps and B-Licence Training Table jumps, all rolled into one dynamic program.

Not only does it accelerate you into a very competent, well-rounded, skilled and safe skydiver, it is also flexible, to be able to cater to your individual needs and wants, both in the air and the ground... because Ramblers understands that everybody has different personalities, different learning curves and different timeframes.
