What are the course dates?
Our learn to skydive courses always start on Mondays, all year round. We advise you to arrive the Sunday afternoon before your course, so you’re ready to learn first thing Monday morning.
(AFF Camp and the A License courses both include the Sunday night prior to your course in the package for this reason.)
Can I split up the AFF course?
Yes but you shouldn’t. Let us explain: The 9x (AFF) stages in learning to skydive are designed to be trained consecutively and each stage relates to the stage prior. The ground training provided on the Monday aims at constructing the foundation of knowledge and safety procedures which are an integral part of every skydive you will ever do. Taking this information into consideration and the fact the learning curve is quite steep – we don’t recommend that you plan to do only a couple of your initial learning stages, then leave more than a few days before continuing your training – as it is critical for your safety and to reduce the likeliness of your need to repeat stages ($180/repeat).
However, generally if you have to leave your course earlier than expected or are unable to jump due to bad weather – your training skydives will be held in credit for up to 3 months, so you can visit us again to complete your course. See our terms and conditions for specifics.
How many skydives should I expect to do a day?
With all of the adrenaline, mental focus & excitement, learning to skydive can be very mentally and physically challenging. On average, AFF Students complete 3x skydives a day – sometimes less, sometimes more. We believe you shouldn’t have the extra pressure of time constraints and make sure you allow for extra time, just in case you need it.
What if the weather is not suitable for skydiving?
Weather is always a primary factor for skydiving. Statistics say, on average at Moruya Airport we have 2 rain days out of 7. Very rarely we have several days of bad weather and students are welcome to stay a few extra days to complete their course. During bad weather days we often take the opportunity to cover other training aspects of your course.

What If I do not pass a training stage?
Sometimes you might be required to repeat a stage – it’s not uncommon and don’t despair, it’s usually so you can perfect something so it does not effect your skills going forward. A repeat stage is $180 and includes your skydive and your instructors.
Contact us today to find out more or make a reservation – remember, spots are limited.
Note: For your own safety, all students are required to be fluent in the English language or have proof of an understanding of the English language (IELTS 5.5 or equivalent.) You can find IELTS near you by clicking here.
