I went on my own to the Freefall University, having virtually everything arranged for me by the customer support team was a real bonus. And I had no sooner arrived in Aranjuez after a seamless journey when my phone rang and I was introduced to another bunch of students, already well into their AFF courses. I had not even reached the DZ and I already felt welcome. The following day at the DZ I started my Ground school with Ulli, Whose friendly casual confident manner made learning so easy, when the time came to jump I didn’t have a single question to ask, I knew exactly what was coming so I could just soak up the experience!
My Instructors Ulli and Paula were great, they are so enthusiastic and have so much experience, they looked after me both in the Air and on the ground. I managed to meet a lot of the Staff outside of the DZ as well. All in it was a fantastic experience, and for the price of an AFF course in the UK, I had a week long adventure in Spain! For those with a sense of adventure don’t just buy the sport, Buy the Lifestyle, go to the Freefall University_

The whole experience is amazing. Every jump begins the sheer amazement that you are about to throw yourself out of a plane at 13.500ft. I still haven’t got over the strange thoughts and feelings that you have as you stand in the door for those last few seconds, knowing you’re about to jump into the sky. The training, the equipment and the great instructors mean that you know everything is going to be ok!! Then you jump…
And then the truly amazing part begins. You arch hard for stability and there you are, handing on the air, nothing between you and the ground except 13.500ft of air. You look at your instructor flying next to you and you look at the altimeter on your wrist, it’s hard to describe what you’re thinking as you turn and track through the sky, watching the clouds rush past. All too soon the altimeter hits 6.000ft and you prepare to pull at 5.500ft you reach, arch and pull….You feel the sudden tug as the canopy starts to deploy, then you look up and watch as the canopy opens into a perfect rectangle.. It’s almost as good a feeling as free falling, when you see that beautiful, perfect rectangular canopy above your head. The canopy ride is great fun, it’s a mix of exhilaration about the free fall and the peaceful flight under the parachute
