I want to become an AFF Instructor....now what?
We published this article back in 2015, and while much of the flying skills and techniques are still similar, some other details of the AFF rating course have changed. Let's take a look!January 29, 2022
What happened to my proficiency card?
USPA is looking at the future with their new online licensing and rating system, let's take a look into it!January 28, 2022
From my 1st contact on the phone with Skydive Ratings to my final slap of the hand & fist bump upon completion of my course, this Team was incredible every step of the way! Patrick was steadfast in keeping me in the loop & maintained contact throughout the 2 months leading up to my course. Thanks again Brother for squaring me away! I didn't get to work much with Bram, but it is obvious how passionate he is about good training- He has built one hell of a Team! When I heard he had 17,000+ Skydives, I was astonished!!! It is clear that he truly loves what he does, and that proper & safe training are of the utmost importance! Lindsey taught my Coach Course, and she was phenomenal! I must say that I didn't really know what I was getting myself into (meaning- I wasn't sure how much I was going to learn). By the end of day one, it was clear that Lindsey was a true Professional. She was a great Leader, Instructor, Coach, Mentor, and just an overall BA Skydiver!!! I learned so much in this course, and it has undoubtedly made me a far better/safer skydiver. Thank you Lindsey for all of your hardwork & mentorship! To all the other Staff that I did not have the opportunity to train with, Thank You too! Just observing the other Instructors teaching the AFF course was amazing to see. Everybody here has their **** together! Skydive Ratings is an outstanding Team, and I look forward to coming back for any ratings I pursue in the future! Blue Skies!!!!!!
