Rambling On

On Monday, the 29th of January, Cyclone Kirily came for a visit with it brought a lot of rain. The DZ was closed. On Tuesday it was still raining and very low clouds. The DZ driveway was under water. And on Wednesday the DZ was still feeling the effects of the cyclone. Today no rain, but super windy. No jumping.

Thursday 1st of February was a little better, but still not the best conditions for skydiving. We had a new student starting in the classroom, Jason McK. but no jumping for today.


Friday was a great skydiving weather, not to windy or cloudy. It was very hot and humid but that didn’t bother the jumpers. We manage to get 6 loads up. Today Tandems were Hughen C., Andrew C., Valerie G., Natasha S. and Anthony W., congrats to all. AFF Student for today were Reece T., Jason McK., Hunter M., Alexander O’B..
