Ever dream of soaring through the skies? That dream can become a reality by learning to skydive solo. Most people learn to skydive by completing an Accelerated Freefall (AFF) course which is a combination of classroom time and practical skydives.
During an AFF course you will learn the skills needed to freefall from an airplane and fly your parachute safely to the ground. Once you have successfully completed an AFF course you can then work towards your own skydiving licence which will allow you to skydive anywhere in the world.
Here is a map showing all the skydiving centres around NZ where you can learn to skydive and what they offer. Get in touch with them directly if you have questions…they love to talk about skydiving.
