Atlanta Skydiving Winter Notes

The frigid air kept jumping to a minimum this week until Sunday when the sun warmed us up to about 55 degrees. Local swoopers were out training and experienced jumpers kept the Twin Otter flying all day long.

On Saturday, we flew a few loads, but jumpers took advantage of the down time to order new gear for the when the weather warms up. Darren Doyle and Laura O'Dowd ordered custom Mirage G4s that should be delivered by mid-February. And Florida jumper Bill Knowles decided he had rented long enough and purchased a brand new Dolphin. Our beer fridge is sure to be full soon!

Make sure you pick up the latest issue of "The Auto Pilot." The January/February 2004 issues features a two-page spread on a jump made by Jason Taylor at Atlanta Skydiving Center last November. There is a great photo of a funneled AFF exit out of the CASA as well as a nice recovery photo with Jesse Watson and Ben Butler as instructors. Instructors Jim Ware, Stewart Cavanaugh, Jim Vance and Darren Doyle are featured throughout the article. Manifest has several copies for those interested.

Keep thinking thoughts of tropical weather! We're still open every day for those that want to brave the cold. Every day there's always at least 4 of us who want to make hop n' pops, so come jump if you can get the day off of work.
