PFF is a method of skydive training which is considered "accelerated" because this progression is the fastest way to experience solo freefall. All jumps are normally from 10,500 ft. Jumps are initially made with two PFF Instructors who exit the aircraft with you. As you progress, one PFF Instructor accompanies you on your jumps.
Candidate space is extremely limited and is only offered to those who have taken the IAD course and have shown exceptional skills at the possibility of progressing through this accelerated method. All candidates are handpicked by the instructors through their performance at the drop zone. Price, commitment and scheduling will be explained to those chosen from the IAD program.
The PFF program takes you to the completion of jumps to finish the skills required for your CSPA Solo Certificate.
