Intense, exciting way to learn how to skydive in a fun, supportive environment

The Freefall University Rated 5 by: HeatherMac on 2016-06-17

Pros: Professional, friendly, informative, encouraging, weather, views
Cons: can get windy by mid afternoon which stops AFF students jumping

I rang David at the FFU and booked the AFF course, Ocana, Spain to learn how to skydive. I'd tried the static line course and it just wasn't for me. I knew one of the instructors, Bryn, from my own DZ in England and decided this was where I wanted to learn. David also arranged for 3 tandems for my daughter and her friends who were based in Madrid with Uni.
Being a woman of 50+ I was both nervous and not sure I was up to the challenge. With encouragement, non judgmental attitudes and a professional team, I enjoyed every minute.
We (3 of us) arranged transport, prior to travelling, from the airport and were met by George, who took us to and from the DZ daily. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We spent the whole first day in ground school. Phil was enthusiastic, energetic, friendly and full of information which kept our interest and got us ready for jumping. We were introduced to our instructors, me with Bryn and my two friends with Mike. I found the levels safe, exciting and mentally challenging, but so rewarding. The support and instruction I received from Bryn was superb and the help and encouragement from Phil, Andres, Addy and other AFF students and experienced jumpers was so positive and fun and helped make the whole experience fulfilling. I passed level 1-7 in 3 days and did my hop and pop and 6 consolidation jumps within the 7 days we were there.
Antonia and the team were very efficient on Manifest. And not forgetting how hard the pilots and packers work!
I loved the the Porter, KGD, what a great looking plane!
There was a variety of food and drinks at the DZ, reasonably priced.
We stayed in the Hostal Real in Aranjuez. A basic, clean, comfortable hotel with air conditioning.
I can't recommend learning here enough and can't wait to go back and jump again in such a positive, friendly environment.
