NOX NEWS FLASH!

Planes…

SYDNEY SKYDIVERS will have a Super Caravan at the Equinox. This three aircraft capability will provide virtually unlimited lift capacity so there won’t be anybody waiting for loads. It also means bigger Bigways if we are up for it?

Star Crests…

OTHER BIG NEWS: As mentioned previously Paul Osborne will be organizing Star Crest loads with Marco flying camera. Paul intends getting people up to a good RW level to feed new Star Cresters to Ben Nordkamp’s Bigway groups.

The BIG NEWS is that experienced RW jumpers filling the base for the Star Cresters, (and do a good job) will get a $15 refund voucher from Paul so their jumps will end up $30 each. That is good Big News, and it’s thanks to the SQPC and the APF, and Paul.
