Our first complete week since we reopened after summer break was incredible..! Everybody at the centre was filled with energy for the activities and everyones faces were happy and smiling.
We would like to give a very warm welcome to Nick Brownhill and Jerry Greeves who arrived with 8 students, fun jumpers and much equipment for their week long expedition with Cardiff University students. The British Army instructors take advantage of the excellent weather conditions and all our facilities to train their wanna-be skydivers. By using our fantastic Dornier G92 flying to 15,000 feet their lucky students are progressing well and rapidly. We are very pleased that they have chosen our centre as the home of this exped and they are the beginning of many this season.
The tandem skydive activity this week was very exciting as we had a group from the Gibralter Society for the Visually Impaired. Michael Boxall, Andrew Rayner, Sixto Parody, Jennalee Banda and Ivan Vinales raised over 1700 € with the skydives, proving that the general public still care and are keen to help good causes. We are always welcoming new groups who are generously raising money for charities who help people in need. If you want to start a charity event, please contact us for advice and information.
This week we saw two AFF students from India, Manvendra and Siddharth. They spent a few days with us after seeing skydiving being promoted in their home country, after enjoying their Introductory AFF Skydive Experience with their instrcutor AnaMaria, they promise to return with friends for the complete course in the beautiful Sevilla sunshine. Fellow Indian, Vineet, completed the entire AFF Expert Package to gain his USPA A Licence and return home a qualified and safe skydiver, congratulations and we hope to see you again soon..!
Marcus Hill. James Spelman and Andrew Buffrey returned to see us all again, this time with the intention to gain their FS1 with our intructors Flo, Jacobo and Steve. With a little hard work and dedication we are sure they will not be disappointed by the time it is time for them to leave.
Don't forget this weekend we see the return of our fabulous Jim Harris and his TrackDayz . We are very proud of Jim as he returns home with a gold medal from the 2011 British National VFS Championships after competing with his team, The Bad Lieutenants. Remember Jim is available for FF coaching all year round, please contact us to check his availability.
We are so very happy to be back operating our full-time 7 day a week centre again and would like to thank all those customers with the confidence in us to return time after time.
