Relative flight training (for obtaining the A License)
If you have completed the Progressive Free Fall training (PFF), are a solo certified and have between 10 and 25 jumps, you will be eligible for the relative flight program, also known as Post-PFF.
Required for the A License, the program usually includes 5 jumps with one instructor (5 levels) and 20 minutes of free fall simulator.
The 5 Post-PFF jumps generally take place as follows:
|Jump||Plane exit||Free fall maneuvers||Maneuvers under canopy|
|Level 1||Rear Floater||Review of basic positions||Flat turns|
|Level 2||Front Floater||Going forward, backward, up and down||Rear risers turn|
|Level 3||Drifting Floater||Centered turns||Front risers turn|
|Level 4||Delta dive||Side slides||Avoidance maneuvers|
|Level 5||Group exit||Dive approach||Break with risers|
* Jump repeats may be required if levels are unsuccessful.
*Post-PFF jumps are the same as jumps with a PFF training instructor, 155$ plus taxes.
All jumps in your Post-PFF training will be filmed, which will allow you to see, with the help of your instructor, the necessary improvements.
During your Post-PFF training, you will learn:
- Some theoretical and practical aspects of skydiving safety
- Some equipment concepts (how to select your equipment, how to check another person’s equipment, etc.)
- The entry order to be respected in the aircraft
- The use of parachute safety systems (Cypress, Vigil, etc.)
- To be an solo skydiver able of jumping in a group
