What Are The Risks Of An AFF Jump?

AFF is one of the safest ways to learn to skydive. The training program is very methodical in it's approach and allows the student to learn each step before moving to a more challenge skill. AFF is commonly understood to create better and safer skydivers.

There is a risk of injury or death while participating in skydiving. There were 3 million parachute jumps performed Nationwide in 2004 and there were 21 people killed skydiving in 2004. 19 of those fatalities were licensed jumpers outside the control of a skydiving instructor or school. Many were caused by skydivers attempting things outside of their skill level. In other words they were trying to run before they learned to walk.
