Congratulations to our Solo First Jump static line student, who made is first jump on Wednesday, Haofei Ma!
Another one of our awesome success stories! Kayla Westervelt who started as as part of our Admin Team last summer, moved to the packing mat where she did a great job at packing for our school and experience jumpers. She’s continued on with us this summer as one of our video editors. Last Wednesday she took our groundschool and made her first skydiver. 2 days later, on Friday, Kayla became solo certified!!!

RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY…
Due to weather forecast, on Thursday night along with the Vertical North team, we made the decision to cancel our first event of this season with Vertical North. It was rather disappointing, but also the correct decision made. Both Saturday & Sunday saw low clouds on both days. The only load that went up was a hop & pop load from 4500 feet.
Youssef El-Hajjar & Candice Stevenson made great use of their time by hosting a packing course to: Malery Tantone, Jessica Valela, Lucio Da Silva, Berk Delevi, Emre Bakirci, and Andrew. Kudos to both Malery and Emre for doing their ‘mess-test’ and getting their packing endorsement.
Friday evening J-Rodd hosted another successful Emergency Procedures review; attending were Kayla Westervelt, Nick Peddie and Brad Pickett.
Our promotional team had an excellent and exciting weekend at Toronto Pride.
