An online skydiving logbook

August 15, 2008


My usual DZ is closed this weekend. There's an old timer fly in on the airfield. So, let's make some jumps at Zwartberg. Immediately when I arrive, manifest asks if I can help out with AFF, and of course I can :-)

The student is a super light weight (52 kilo) mexican youngster, and we do levels 3, 4, 5 and 6. A quiet day for me, the day of a life for him. He arrived in the morning, looking shy and stressed. After his first jump of the day, he started smiling. By the end of the day, he face was frozen in a big, happy, not-of-this-world grin. This is his level 5. Good exit, floating around a bit in the beginning, confident on his 360°, flying forward is difficult at first, but than he gets it, great altitude awareness on his second turn, good pull. A very nice jump!

What I don't like about this DZ is the lack of beer at the end of the day :-(

Wow thanks a lot for the AFF 3,4,5,6 and 7 !!! and also for putting me here on the blog.

I've done 3 more solo jumps, and it gets better every time!

This weekend there is a packing course on Zwartberg. So I'll go there, but I saw that the DZ in Schaffen is not far from the trainstation, so I'm planning to go there!

I still owe you a beer!

Cheers and Thanks once again!
