Nate Gilbert Remembered

Atlanta Skydiving Center Freefly Coach and Videographer Nate Gilbert will be remembered Saturday night in a nationwide sunset tracking dive. Nate died from injuries sustained in an accident on Friday. Information on Nate, his services as well as thoughts from family and friends can be found on the and ASC forums as well as and

Besides being a world-class freeflier and videopgrapher, Nate had organized countless tracking dives at ASC and given so many of us great memories, and as well as better tracking skills. Tyler Lawson is organizing the nationwide tracking dive in which skydivers at drop zones around the nation will participate in a sunset tracking dive to remember Nate. Even if you are not on the dive, skydivers and others can gather in the landing area for a moment of silence. Please bring your beverage of choice for a toast afterwards to Nate and as that is what Nate would want us to do - have a great time and keep on skydiving!

It was a somber and busy week at ASC, but we can't forget to congratulate our newest AFF Instructors who earned their ratings under USPA President Glen Banngs. Congratulations to Bruno Asmann, Chuck Owen, Rob Morris and Mark Kalupa on their achievement! All four instructors are excited to be helping our AFF students learn how to skydive. Nice job guys!

We had two AFF student graduates this week as Phil Goldstucker and Brent Register completed their 7 levels of instruction and are now working toward their A License. Beer!

Mark your calendars! ASC is organizing a night of water training at a gym pool in Cedartown on Friday, August 6, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Water training is a requirement for the USPA B License. The water training is open to all skydivers, regardless of jump numbers...from 1 to 10,000+ jumps. This is a great experience for those who have never gone through it. You will get live water training of climbing out of a harness and parachute in water. Stewart Cavanaugh, Jim Vance and Mike Gruwell will conduct the training. A $20 per person fee will include pool use, instruction as well as pizza and beverages at ASC afterward. More information will be posted at the dropzone and on the web site as we get closer to the event.

See you all for $15 Wednesday as well as the Breakfast Club of Canopy Piloting Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. The Super Twin Otter is flying all week and weekend at ASC!

Blue Skies Nate. . .
