The Accelerated Freefall Program is the most progressive program in the world! It instructs where other programs fall short. AFP has inspired USPA's requirements for self-supervision thus  producing more competent and confident skydivers. AFP allows you, the student, to progress at your own rate in a supportive rather than stressful environment by providing individualized attention. Through this 18 level program you also learn equipment inspection, freefall, canopy flight, and packing.

It's 25 jumps to an A license and jumping with all your new friends! Every jump you do here at Skydive the Lakes counts toward those 25 jumps – including your tandems! 
We taught the AFF program for a decade and saw many students getting lost by the wayside. After they finished their student jumps, they just didn't know what to do. At Skydive The Lakes, we don't leave students hanging.
