Atlanta Skydiving Center Starts New Coaching Program and Cheers on Teams at U.S. Nationals

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.

$15 Lift Ticket Wednesday continues to be a big draw at Atlanta Skydiving Center. It's a combination of mid-week skydiving blues, cheap lift tickets and the Super Twin Otter flying all day. The usual suspects, Joe, Lyle and Deva were out burning up the sky over ASC Wednesday along with several other skydivers.

TJ Landgren left this week for Utah, but will be returning in about a month to live permanently near Atlanta Skydiving Center. Just before leaving, TJ was helping Charles Mann hone his canopy skills as Charles is looking to try different types/sizes of canopies.

Another familiar face will be returning to Atlanta later this year: Baxter Gillespie. Baxter, who had moved to Florida earlier this year has a new job opportunity in the Atlanta area and will be moving back. Baxter was out jumping with Jeff Wills and friends last weekend. Baxter is known for his base jumping as well as being a BirdMan Instructor. Welcome back Baxter!

David Aitken and Dave Hebert were out on Friday to make several hop and pops as they worked on canopy skills. Aitken also showed off his new orange Lotus.nice.

Many ASC jumpers made a road trip to Alabama Skydiving Center in Pell City this past weekend for the Girl Boogie. Katie Hawkins was organizing all weekend as the Pell City and Cedartown jumpers combined for some kick-butt skydives over Pell City as well as an all-night party on Saturday.

Members of GT Airlock were out practicing for the upcoming Collegiate Nationals on Friday and then stayed the weekend to work on their coach ratings. Meanwhile ASC 4-way teams Inviscid and 5 Minute Call traveled to Perris Valley to compete at the U.S. Nationals. Inviscid finished 9th in the Advanced Division while 5 Minute Call finished 26th in the Intermediate Class.

ASC 8-way team Kinetic Energy, led by Doug Glover, is also competing at Nationals and is currently in 6th place with four rounds to go. More information on the teams and results can be found on the ASC Skydiver Forums.

See you all this weekend at ASC!
