It is time to get back into skydiving. Last year I did two solo skydives then stepped back for a while.

Today I restarted the AFF program (Accelerated Freefall) at Skydive Toledo. I did two jumps AFF1 & AFF2. The staff is fantastic and I am ready for my AFF3 jump.

AFF Level # 1

The First Jump Course (FJC) consists of 4 to 6 hours of ground training. Two jumpmasters, the student wears a solo parachute system. Jumpmasters will accompany student in freefall.
