13 British Armed forces graduate Hybrid BPA A License Course in 4 days of jumping.
The Freefall Academy having been audited by the Royal Air Force and approved as a contractor to the British Armed forces recently played host to an official expedition from the Army College in Harrowgate . This training was funded by the British Army under the Adventurous training programme and forms part of the Army Colleges official training activities. 13 British Soldiers with no previous experience of skydiving completed the Frefall University Hybrid Tunnel Accelerated freefall program.
Tunnel and entire AFF course in 2 days. 2% repeat rate.
After an initial ground school covering the basic theory of human body flight and parachuting procedures each student spent 15 minutes flying with their AFF instructor in the 4,6m wind tunnel inorder to better prepare for their first skydive and the AFF course. Better prepared they could not have been for in a little over 2 days of jumping in Ocana all 13 soldiers had completed their BPA 8Level AFF course and graduated as solo skydivers under the tutelage of our resident British instructors.
10 Solo skydives each in 2 days
After 2 days of well-earned rest in which the students toured Madrid they returned to complete their ten consolidation solo skydives and qualified for the British Parachute Association A License, the paperwork for which was completed onsite in Spain.
We as a team are extraordinarily proud of our graduates and look forward to more Groups arriving this year from the British Armed Forces. This group has set the bar very high for those who follow with only 2 repeat jumps required in the entire group.
AFF Courses start every day and in as little as 2 days of jumping you too can be skydiving solo. Get in touch for details.
