Skydive Atlanta

DZ Blog

Sunday April 1, 2012

No April fooling, SDA had one of our best AFF days ever. 2 graduates and 20 AFF's. Not to mention all the fun jumpers on 18 back to back loads! Congrats to Ben Hendrick and Eric Sumpter, our grads. Also, Noah completed his 600th. Video to come soon.
Kudos to our instructors who were short handed this weekend. In just a few hours after the weather broke Saturday we got everyone up that waited. Special thanks Sunday to the Silver Wings instructors for helping out with the AFF's.
If you haven't been to Skydive Atlanta lately, you are missing out on Georgia's hottest DZ back on the rise. We received a full line of Parasport Italia Gear to stock our shop this weekend, including Z-1 fullface helmets. Our Pro Shop is growing weekly; if you need gear this is the place. We will not be beaten on price.

Another good one at SDA. Saturday started cloudy but cleared nicely and we cranked it out all day. We had a few Golden Knights visiting, had some nice formation jumps, a cross country, and one tracking dive that, well, we still haven't quite figured it out.

Another incredible weekend at SDA. We had great weather all weekend and loads of fun jumpers. Thanks to Gary Shaffer for the great new winds aloft and overhead board for our AFF training area!

Yesterday we said our final goodbye to our beloved Momma Dog with an ash dive.

SO the weather seems to be in the cycle where it's nice right up until the weekend. None the less, we got some loads up each day and had some fun in between.
