It really all depends on your situation. I did 3 a day during AFF due to weather and number of loads going up. 3 a day during AFF worked pretty well for me, I had enough time between levels to reflect on how the jumps went, get a full debrief, and read and do plenty of dirt dives for my upcoming jump.

Make sure you know what your TLO's are for your next jump. I saw a guy a few weeks ago do level one and forgot that he had to do 3 practice pulls. He did one and then just enjoyed the rest of the jump. When he got to the ground his instructors told him he didnt meet the requirements for level 1 and had to redo it.

Not sure where you plan to do AFF at but hopefully they have a similar policy to Deland which is where I did mine. At deland when you finish AFF you get the gear for the rest of the day for free. So I planned mine so that my last AFF level was early in the morning and then I had a free (already paid for with AFF lvl 7) rig for the rest of the day. Good luck on your AFF.

I think the biggest factor will be how well you do with each level. I did three jumps my first day (levels A-C), and decided to call it a day to process everything. The next weekend I finished up the AFF levels (in three more jumps), and then did a few more solo jumps, for a total of 7 jumps that day.

You can make pretty good progress in a day, just know your limits and pay attention to what's going on. At a certain point when you're learning something new, you reach a saturation point, and doing any more becomes counter-productive.
