Repeat last AFF-level

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

So, I passed all 7 AFF-levels a little over a month ago. I haven't been able to jump because of an injury that happened on my last landing which has prevented me from jumping the past 5 weeks. I think I might be able to get back up again within the next couple of weeks, but then it's going to be 6-8 weeks since my last jump. I remember most of what I've learned, I will definitely make sure I can go through some things again with an instructor, especially regarding landing. I was just wondering if you think it would be a good idea for me to maybe repeat my last level? Because my confidence is not really on top right now, and I'm a little nervous about jumping again. I don't have to repeat any levels, but maybe it would be a wise thing to do?

Share your opinions please!

Jumpers should receive refresher training appropriate for their skydiving history and time since their last skydive.

If the plane is unrecoverable then exiting is a very very good idea.

As a student, after 30 days, you are uncurrent and require a recurrency skydive. Your instructors will decide what they want you to do specifically, but the recurrency requirements for a student are set forth in the SIM. At my DZ, for a self-supervised skydiver, we likely would send the jumper up with an AFFI on a CAT E/Level 7 repeat to assure that the student is able to recover stability in the event of loss of stability and is able to pull on his own. Every jump is a learning experience. Enjoy, and be safe!
