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).
The 5 Post-PFF jumps generally take place as follows:
|Jump||Plane exit||Free fall maneuvers||Maneuvers under canopy|
|Level 1||Linked, Inside center||Levels : Up, Down, Track on heading||Front riser turns|
|Level 2||Linked, Center floater||Forward movement and docking, Track on heading||360 turns and flaring with back risers|
|Level 3||Linked, Rear flotter||Forward, levels (movement and docking), Floating Track||360 turns with front risers|
|Level 4||Dive out exit||3 docks with change of level and heading, Floating Track||Canopy stalls|
|Level 5||Dive out exit with 2 seconds delay||3 docks with change of level and heading (Flying the dock without grabbing for 3 seconds), Floating Track||Flat turns in both directions|
* Jump repeats may be required if levels are unsuccessful.
*Post-PFF jumps costs 99$ + taxes, without the equipment rental.
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 a solo skydiver able to jump in a group
