Little dusty after the first landing ??? :) Not to worry, well have that sorted in a jump or two.

Robert Greenhalgh who flew in from the Midlands to leatn to skydive is clearly not enjoying himself.


Way to much smiling , grinning .. learning to skydive is supposed to be hard work…

Mara from ” Berlin ” who graduated last month on the AFF programme decided to beat the German weather and come back for some more fallschirmspringen … sounds like something not meant to be enjoyed in German !

Another student who wont stop grinning .. whats all this then ! Sheila Adams is doing just great on the AFF course.

Dominic Keller has joined us to learn to skydive. Theres always an air of tension before a level one and somebody on this load was adding a little more to the air aswell .. The rule is if you fart and its totally gross your getting out!

” check pins and puffs before exit ” ??? ( the sign on the wall ) ??


Richard Southwell here just before ground school. Very serious !!

Just before the level one , cool calm and collected ..

Just after landing … emmm … told you it was top !!!

When you come to do and AFF course you will leave with three things a license, a sun tan and a huge smile !
