Accelerated Freefall (AFF):

Tandem AFF: Is an AFF where you will have a full day training.The next day would be your jump with the instructor piggy backing you,but you would be the one handling all operations,i.e opening of parachute,landing etc.
AFF: Two instructors jump along with you(not piggy backing you) and they help you maintain position mid air,and let you go.A single AFF is a training of 2-3 days.
