Accelerated Freefall Restrictions

There are certain restrictions for both AFF Full Course and AFF Level 1:


Minimum age is 16 years and maximum age is 54, subject to health conditions. For persons between 16 and 18 years of age a parental/guardian signature of consent is required on three forms which will be provided upon booking.

Please note that due to our governing body British Skydiving we are unable to train AFF students that are aged 50 years or older. There may be exceptions to this rule, for clarification please email



  • All students must be within their recommended Body Mass Index (height:weight ratio) of 27.5.

  • Check your own height on the chart here to see the maximum acceptable weight.

  • A reasonable level of fitness is also required.

  • Exceptions can sometimes be made for those with a good level of fitness with a high BMI due to muscle mass, however, assessments are made on an individual basis at the Chief Instructor’s discretion.

British Skydiving Membership

Full British Skydiving membership is required from Level 2. Provisional Membership – P6, is included with the Level 1 skydive, but it only covers you for Level 1, therefore will need to be converted to Full Membership if you continue with the course.


The membership year runs from the 1st April to 31st March each year, therefore the cost of the conversion depends on when you take it out.

Fitness and Health

All students will be required to sign a British Skydiving Solo Student Declaration of Fitness form 115-C. Those unable to sign the form due to medical conditions or injuries must bring a copy of 115-D signed and stamped by their doctor instead. All forms can be downloaded below. Only the official forms should be used, we cannot accept letters or other types of medical.
