 David Martin – Completed AFF
Culfillar – First Jump at Toogs & First Off DZ landing at Toogs!
 Oli – 1st tandem chop

Monday 14th June was a quiet start to a fairly quiet week, but not for our newest student David Martin who started his AFF Course and got Stage 1 done. Welcome to the Sport David. David continued on Tuesday and successfully completed Stages 2 & 3. It was much the same on Wednesday with David powering through Stages 4 & 5. And a similar routine followed on Thursday. David was loving the Cessna 182 and knocked over Stages 6 & 7, and again Stage 8 on Friday. It was early starts all week as the westerly winds were letting us know who is Boss!

Saturday was windy! David Martin was up early for his Stage 9 Hop & Pop – completing his AFF. And lucky he did because that load was IT for the day. And there was a ton of skydivers here chaffing at the bit – but it was not to be.

David Stage 9 – finishing his AFF Course in style

Sunday was beautiful! Most fun jumpers stayed around, the Bellas were training, skydivers from Jurien Bay were here here, wing suiters were flocking around, our Tandems were Klaeton Sheehan, Robert Haydon, Charlie Sheehan, Ineke Brouwer, Luke Erceg, Judith Hough, Alexander Hough and Tyson Gesier.

And after sitting in the classroom all day Saturday our newest students Matthew Franczak, Jan-Nick Scheen, and Aaron Rainsford did Stages 1, 2, & 3 of the AFF Course and Conor Haines was back for a Refresher. And Oli Morris had his first tandem malfunction! (It didn’t stop though, he was right up there again for another!). Sunday sure made up for the rest of the week.

(to be confirmed…)

The facilities and equipment are amazing. Pool, bar, plenty of wildlife and the location is just fantastic. The staff are professional, friendly and very welcoming. The local regular jumpers are extremely helpful too so have a chat, ask questions and get involved. Enjoy.
