AFF Course

March 16, 2019 - March 21, 2019


After the first day of pre-course coaching, there is a full day of class. Once the class is completed we can start with evaluations. However, we allow candidates to continue to make practice jumps if they are not ready for the “hot jumps” yet. On average an AFF rating course takes 5-6 days to complete depending on the size of the group and weather conditions.

To pass the course you need to have a satisfactory score on:

  • Category C main side evaluation jump
  • Category C reserve side evaluation jump
  • Category D evaluation jump
  • Category C and D ground preparation
  • score 80 % on the IRM written exam

To get a satisfactory score on an evaluation jump you have to score 75 % satisfactory on the AFF in air evaluation form. You can find the evaluation forms in the IRM. The scoring will be explained to you during the AFF pre-course and you will know exactly what we are looking for.


During AFF pre-course you will receive coaching in the specific AFF in-air skills.The practice jumps start simple and become more complex and challenging as you progress until you are ready for the actual evaluation jumps. Things we work on are

  • flying hard exits
  • slot flying with a moving student
  • reading the student’s body position
  • properly presenting hand signals
  • blocking and re-docking
  • smart flying long distances
  • stopping spins
  • rolling over an inverted student
  • assisting with deployment including pulling for the student

The pre-course will prepare you 100% for the evaluation jumps. After each jump, you will receive a recommendation from your evaluator.If you want we can organize wind tunnel training for you as well (Florida courses) If you would like to receive our AFF pre-course modules, just send us an email and ask for AFF course info.
