Learn To Skydive

Become a Licensed Skydiver

Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Training Progam

Learn to skydive solo with TX’s best skydiving instructors and coaches at Skydive San Marcos!

If you dream of becoming a licensed skydiver and taking up skydiving as a sport, the Skydive San Marcos AFF Program is for you. We offer a structured training course based on the USPA’s Integrated Student Program curriculum. Once you have successfully completed the Accelerated Freefall Course, you will be able to confidently skydive solo and will be well on your way to earning your initial skydiving license.

How Does AFF Training Work?

The program consists of 8 categories of skydives (A to H) all of which are conducted under the supervision of either a USPA AFF Instructor or a USPA Coach. Under the AFF Program, the student will wear a “solo” parachute rig and be accompanied by 2 instructors on jumps A through C.

Following completion of the category C jump, category D though E2 are completed under the supervision of a single USPA AFF Instructor.  Categories F1 through Hop and Pop are conducted under the supervision of a USPA Coach.

The AFF training program can typically be completed with 14-16 jumps. To quality for the initial ‘A’ skydiving license issued by the USPA, the student must complete a total of 25 jumps.

How Do I Get Started?

To begin the AFF Training Course, you must first register for Ground School Training. Ground School Training sessions are typically held every other Saturday, starting at 8 a.m. and lasting a minimum of 6 hours.

Please visit our Events Page for a listing of all upcoming Ground School sessions. Ground School must be pre-booked and paid for in advance. Prices for Ground School and the subsequent category jumps can be viewed in the table below. To register for an upcoming session, please call 512-488-2214.
