You may be confusing AFF (accelerated freefall) with static line.

We have a decent-sized group so far! I'm hoping we can hit 20. You guys would really help bump that number.

So far we're looking at $159 per person.

No you can do AFF without a lic. you have to do alot more classroom though and your first jump will be with two instructors one one each side as you free fall to make sure you pull and stay in the right position

No thanks. I don't have that big just yet. Seems like tandem the first time would be the best option.

When are you going? I would be much more interested in AFF or static line w/e it is, as I've done the tandem thing before but I know she would do tandem.

Good to know that you dont have a set yes is it a smarter option to do tandem? Is it way different doing most of it yourself defiantly Im glad my first jump was AFF i dont think its for everyone though

I'd be down for aff I don't mind paying a bit more to do it myself.

Tandem seems like it would be a lot like riding on back or a bike. Exciting maybe but no control.
