Atlanta Skydiving Center's new coaching
program went into effect last week and immediately we had
several jumpers utilizing our coaches to attain their A
and B licenses. Moses came down from Tennessee to stay the
week, get current in the air and complete his A license
requirements. By the end of the week, Moses left with his
A license in hand. Nice job!
Lee Wood completed his B License last weekend while Paul
and Scott continued to work on their A license requirements.
Congratulations is in order for Steve Curry who graduated
the AFF program this weekend at Atlanta Skydiving
Center with a picture perfect Level VII with AFF
instructor John Jordan.

Lyle and Deva were out burning up the sky over ASC Wednesday
along with several other skydivers.
