Its been a fun week at the Freefall University we saw 12 people, most of whom had never skydived before become skydivers through our accelerated freefall course in an average of 3 days of jumping. All are currently completing their consolidation exercises under the watchful eye of Paula who is assisting them with their BPA CH1 and setting individual jump exercises in addition to offering further training. Consolidation jumping is about much more than hiring a rig and jumping , they are a chance to grow your experience , confidence and recieve further training in addition to reviewing the procedures already covered during your AFF. For example in addition to reviewing how to check your own equipment you learn about the dos and donts of doing a flightline check for other skydivers.

Stephen only left a few days ago but it seems that a return to blighty was too much for him to take as he was no sooner home than he booked an easyjet from London back to Madrid for some more fun in the sun. Himself , John and Kamilla decided on some 3 way action and formed a scrambles team and promptly got into 3 way formation skydiving.
