Johnny Morton came from Belfast to Learn to skydive with us. He finished his AFF course in 3 days of jumping. In this his level seven skydive He did a floating exit ( where you face the wind which initially comes at you along the aircrafts line of flight ) and pretty soon he was into a loop after checking with his instructor. Once recovered he did a sweet track, then some turns.
Special note , a thumbs down signal from his instructor does not mean ” bad job ” far from it ! Its a signal to arch or push your pelvis down ( get into a bananna shape ) so you are more aerodynamic. You can see as he responds he starts to speed up and he is even more stable. He capped the dive with a great parachute opening sequence to graduate this portion of his accelerated freefall , with his level 8 and high altitude consolidation jumps to follow. Nice job Jonny and enjoy jumping in the Wild Geese BPA dropzone. ( Maggy is expecting you !)
Speaking of the Geese , if you are in Northern Ireland and are either a qualified jumper passing through or want to complete a tandem skydive its a center we can highly recommend. They also undertake static line parachute courses for people who wish to learn to parachute jump via this method.
