Our AFF School was the primary activity this past week. We had eight new students on Monday, two on Thursday and also two external schools jumping on our dropzone. On Monday we welcomed Vanessa from the Netherlands, Simon, George, Richard and Sarah from the UK, Kareem from Egypt, Stefan from Denmark and Oliver who planned starting his course with us after moving to Spain. Benjamin and Alexander from Germany came on Thursday for their ground school and on Friday morning they were ready for their first skydives. The majority of our students went for the AFF Platinum package that offers all necessary jumps for the BPA A license: AFF level 1 to 8, 10 Consolidation jumps and the CH1 briefings. It was a pleasure to meet them and we would like to congratulate all A licensed students that Skydive Spain had last week. Enjoy your jumps guys and don´t forget the next step for you is your FS1. If you want to jump with your friends and build big formation skydives just come and visit us.
Iwan and Ula from Skydive Atmosfera were here with a new student from Poland and John´s Horne AFF School „Learn to skydive” was also on our dropzone licensing four new students. John will come back in a couple of weeks with an impressive number of AFF attendances: 12 people! Looking forward to having you back here, John!
This weekend we had Jim Harris´ famous Trackdayz and around 10 skydivers followed him through the blue skies challenging themselves and passing new limits. They all enjoyed the professional briefings and received some good tips for their future tracking jumps. See you all on the next Trackdayz event: 29th – 30th of September.
Our regulars also visited us this week and they had loads of fun with tracking and freefly jumps. Thank you all for being here and we look forward to your next visit.
If you want, you can check the pictures on our website Skydivespain.com and on our Facebook group page Skydive Spain to see how much fun we had during this last week!!
We would like to give a special thank you to the Charity organizers that visited us last week. Tuesday took place the Royal British Legion (RBL) Charity Event and this time we had Fuengirola and Marbella branches jumping in tandem with us. This brave people, not only that they accepted the challenge of skydive, but they also raised lots of founds for the organization. Matt Jones collected more than 1.200€, and this is just one of the examples. On Sunday we welcomed “4 Paw Adoptions and Cystis Fibrosis”. The first one aims to help abandoned dogs and the second to rise founds for cystic fibrosis research. We are very happy that they chose us for these noble goals, thank you for your confidence in us!!
