AFP has evolved over the years into the most progressive and complete curriculum used in the skydiving world today. The AFP curriculum has inspired USPA’s requirements for self-supervision, thus producing more competent and confident skydivers. Unlike with other programs, AFP graduates have excelled in all aspects of the sport becoming National and World Champions.
