The training starts with the ground school, for 1-2 days. Your instructor will teach you all aspects of skydiving, where you’ll become familiar with the equipment, and all you need to know to skydive safely.
At the end of this initial phase of the course, there is a written test. After this you will feel confident and ready to jump. During your course you will learn some of the more advanced techniques such as horizontal and vertical movement.
Initially, your instructor will guide you by radio after the parachute is open, as you learn to pilot a canopy by yourself. At level seven, you will be able to jump alone (without the instructor by your side), confident and with a wide range of newly acquired skills.
After the course, our instructors will continue to guide you and accompany you on jumps
Mini course (Level 1 AFF course)
The AFF program is an internationally approved parachuting instruction course. This AFF-course is recognized and valid in all the European Union and worldwide.
The AFF instruction program is with either Portuguese or English instructors. The instruction program follows the guidelines of the “Parachuting Instruction Manual” of the German Parachuting Federation “DFV”, which leads to a German national parachuting license.
However, Portuguese and English students will be guided to the respective national licenses, so that jumping when you return home will be as easy as possible.
After an intensive training, the student will do a “free fall” skydive from up to 12.000 feet.
The course Includes:
• Theoretical basic training (1,5 days)
• Practical training
• Complete parachute equipment incl. helmet, jumpsuit, altimeter
• Briefings before each skydive.

• Video assisted skydives
• Canopy instruction for the skydive jump
• Radio assistance during the whole skydive and landing
• Level 1 skydive from up to 12.000 feet
• Certificate showing that you have completed the training and your first jump
• Level 1 training will count towards full course
The mini course is 360,00 € and if you decide to carry on and do the full AFF course, this will be deducted from the total course price. The maximum weight is 100 kg.
