Not a bad day but some jumps get a bit hairy and this was one for a few of us…  The reason we conduct routine training missions is to build skills under canopy and navigation under canopy is perhaps chief among the needed skills.  When the go command is given and the...

Well, maybe we can say the universe seeks balance…  with the exceptionally beautiful weather we were blessed with the last two jumps, maybe we were owed a bit of bad weather.  In the last three years we've only had to stand down due to weather one other time.  I guess...

We were all glad to see that the weather was once again favorable. Jump altitude was just over 2,000 ft which gave an additional bit of hang time to enjoy the magnificent view.

A great mission with all troopers easily hitting the DZ from 1.5 to 2k AGL. And it was great to have leaders from the 82nd Association join us today to watch the drop and participate in the Orlando Area At Large chapter of the 82nd Association meeting and breakfast.
