Don't take our word for it. This is how our newest skydivers feel.
"From a misunderstanding to a life changing experience. Being part of a big crazy family full of people who know how to make the most out of life & support each other. Learning to skydive is an amazing journey & FNFF is the meeting point for the best humans around!"
"Doing my AFF at FNFF was an incredible experience. Not only are the instructors exceptionally knowledgeable, but they knew exactly how to mentally coach me and I will be forever grateful to them for getting me in the sky. It has been awesome to come back jumping this year and I have not stopped smiling since."
AFF at FNFF was an absolutely amazing experience. The instructors are exceptional and go above and beyond to ensure a fun, safe progression. Couldn't imagine doing it anywhere else! Thanks!
Asombrosa!
Thrills, beers, and endless unforgettable moments! You won’t regret it…

Club weekends

Our club weekends are scheduled for the third weekend of every month. Come on down and join the family for some jumps together. We pride ourselves on supporting everyone of all levels and ensuring you have a buddy to jump with. Stay the whole weekend, camp at the dropzone and meet the crew. You're welcome.

Students and novices

Student AFF training weeks

Our students are trained using the accelerated freefall (AFF) course. We train our first jump students over an entire week once a month. The ground school kicks off on Monday, but there are no jumping operations. From Tuesday onwards, the plane is running if the weather is suitable. Anyone can join us and help fill the aircraft. We operate all week. Each week of AFF is scheduled to flow into the club weekends so our course graduates can meet our members and be part of the fun we all take for granted.

Recurrency events

Recurrency camps cater for all our students and novices who may have missed out on jumping over the wet season. These weekends are aimed at consolidating and progressing students into novices and then towards their B licences. We focus on AFF, B-rels, 4-way blast and starcrests. These are designed for our beginners who haven't jumped for a while and feel the need to be back in the air. Dust off the cobwebs, remember how to leave an aircraft and have fun. We all need a little help with currency now and again.
Recurrency 2024

B-rel booster events

These are usually three-day events designed from the get go to help our novices attain their B licence. We charge a small registration fee, but this is recovered from the savings on just one coached jump. With generous support from the North Queensland Parachute Council, we try to cover slots for our coaches, which reduces the overall cost for our novices. For those who have their B licensce, we introduce the basics of 4-way competition. Everything is focused towards boosting the skill levels for our up-and-coming skydivers to ensure they feel welcome and confident on the ground and in the sky.

Starcrest weekends

A starcrest is required to jump together with more than ten people in the sky regardless of which discipline you are exploring. To attain a starcrest, you need to show us you can safely approach and build an eight to ten way. These weekends are focused on providing the support and coaching to help our B licence jumpers achieve this crest. When you're ready, this event is the one to attend. They're way more likely to work in this focused environment than at a boogie, where everyone is too busy to dedicate their time to the starcrests.
Starcrests 2024
Progression camps

Flocking camps

These events are aimed at jumpers who are looking to finesse their canopy piloting skills and gain more experience around the basics of canopy flocking. Camps are limited to 12 participants and it's expected participants attend every day. Participants are organised into groups based on their wing loading and canopy type, with the aim of keeping the same groups for the camp. Attendance at the safety briefing is mandatory. You'll need the basic understanding of canopy inputs from a previous canopy course. Wing loadings are critical and depend on the level of each camp. You'll need good situational awareness and discipline to follow flight paths and execute safe break offs, separation, and landing orders.

Angle camps

The focus of the camp is to build skills in small groups to achieve safe disciplined angle jumps. Groups will be created accordingly using skill level and goals. We are aiming for six jumps per day.
Angles 2024

Wingsuit camps

Our booster wings five-day wingsuit camp with the best coaches available including the likes of Arvid Endler, Woody, Tahi, Scotty P and Debler. Please commit to six jumps per day. The coaches are keen. We have the fastest plane in Australia and the cheapest jump tickets. We will pump as many loads as you want all day.

Canopy courses

Learn to fly your wing with confidence. These courses are aimed at beginner to intermediate canopy pilots and is the perfect first canopy course for those looking to understand the essentials of canopy flight. They are also open for those who have done a course before and want to refine their skills. Gain confidence under your wing with an in-depth knowledge of flight controls. Fly safe, predictable patterns and practise better flare technique for soft and accurate landings. We primarily do hop n pops with all landings videoed for debriefing. In air exercises are used to understand the range of all your control inputs.

CRW camps

Far North Freefall skydive club host a CRW camp each year for all levels, beginner to advanced. Cameron 'Coops' Cooper and Tommaso 'T' Liccioli-Watson are a few of the awesome coaches we've used at these events. If you've never done CRW before, then come give it a go. If you've got CRW experience, then come join the fun over the stunning north Queensland tropics. If the weather plays the game we may even do jumps onto Mission Beach and Dunk Island, so get your display licence up to date. Slots are limited so get in quick!

Competition

State championships

The state championships are hosted every second year at Far North Freefall and in South Queensland on alternate years. Competition is one of the most enjoyable aspects of skydiving and is still alive and well across the country and around the world. Jumping in a team and competing is the fastest way to progress your skills no matter which discipline you compete in. Far North Freefall are fortunate to have two competitors from Whitefish who represented Australia at the 2023 World Cup in Norway and call Far North Freefall their home. Spinny Things are a local AA team who represented Far North Freefall at the 2020 Nationals in Nagambie and again at the Virtual Nationals held here in Tully.

Packer B courses

We run packer B courses whenever we have enough candidates who need the rating. This course is a requirement for both the coach and instructor ratings and is usually completed fairly early in a skydiver's career. A Packer B rating is needed in order to pack student rigs, and to teach others how to pack. The course runs through extensive detail about gear and gear maintenance. It usually takes one day.
Packer B 2024

Coach training courses

The coach rating allows you to teach our novices how to safely skydive with other jumpers. It generally requires two or three days.

Instructor training courses

The AFF Instructor Course is run over nine days of intense study and practise. Before you come to the course you will need to have prepared yourself with the necessary background knowledge and freefall skills. For most candidates the course does not allow enough free time to catch up on study that should have been done before the course started.
