AFF Courses


The Course

The Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) course is a training program made up of a combination of theory training on land and practical training while jumping.

This course is designed to guide students to be able to jump alone. Training begins on land, where students learn all the necessary skills to be able to skydive safely.

The most important thing for us is to instruct and form safe skydivers!


  • You must be 18 years or older. Those under 16 must bring a notarized authorization from both parents to be able to do the course otherwise both parents must be present during each flight made by the student.
  • You must weigh less than 110 kilograms. No exceptions.
  • 30% deposit required – this is non-refundable.
  • No underwater immersions at least 24 hours before each of the flights.
  • No consumption of alcohol 24 hours before each flight.


To be able to fly, you must first pass the theoretic course, which is the first step in becoming a safe skydiver.

Theory classes are given every Thursday in Caracas and last a total of 4-6 hours. Reservations can be made via our contact telephone numbers. You must also bring proof of payment of 30% of the total value of the course. This is non-refundable.

Once you have completed the theoretic part of the course you will assigned a date and time to go to Skydive Caribbean in Higuerote whereupon arrival you must register yourself for your first jump.

Once you have passed the theoretic part of the course you must carry out your fist jump in a period no longer than 14 days after approval.

Each level is made up of objectives that should be completed before advancing onto the next (additional jumps to what is offered in the course should be paid for separately). In the event that the objectives set are not completed, the level will have to be repeated – this is done at the discretion of each instructor. Once you have completed your first jump, the next must be realized within the next 30 days. If for any reason there is a lapse of more than 30 days the student will have to revise the theory and repeat and pass the last level approved.


If you are a graduated skydiver and your license and paperwork are up to date you can jump with us at 13500ft. We also offer coaching at every level for freefly, relative work and flight with canopy. We also offer equipment rental.

The Plane

At Skydive Caribbean we have a Cessna Great Caravan with BlackHawk conversion to jump. The Blackhawk conversion increases the horsepower of the original engine from 620 to 850, making ascension to 13500ft in less than ten minutes. It is also spacious, allowing for 20 skydivers at a time.

The Cessna Caravan is worldwide renown as one of the best aircrafts for skydiving because of how safe and efficient it is.


At present the Skydive Caribbean facilities are undergoing remodeling which will ensure greater comfort and safety for our users.

However irrespective of the works being carried out, Skydive Caribbean is still completely operative.

What is an AFF Course?

The Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) course is the first step for those that want to become real skydivers. El course is composed of a class session of 4-6 hours of theory followed by 10 jump categories. Each category has objectives that should be completed in free fall in order to move on to the next.

Five of the categories are carried out with two instructors and the other five are done with one instructor. After all of these 10 categories are passed you are allowed to auto supervise your own jumps and jump alone.
