25 Ways to become a better Canopy Pilot

AFF Instructor and Coach Examiner Alan Martinez, D-29572, freely admits that he's not the world's best canopy pilot. However, he is always working to improve his skills and would like to help others improve theirs, too. He has made approximately 1,400 skydives and divides his time between Mile-Hi Skydiving Center in Longmont, Colorado, and the nearby SkyVenture Colorado wind tunnel.

This article originally ran in the February 2011 issue of Parachutist, the official publication of the U.S. Parachute Association.

Our skydivers again recognised in the latest Australian National Skydiving Record

Adelaide Skydivers from Lower Light travelled to Southern California with other like minded skydivers in an attempt to break the current Australian Bigway formation of 119 skydivers linked in freefall, set in 2015 at Perris California.

Skydivers from all over Australia as well as some "friends of Aussies" (FOA's) got together in a culmination of four years hard work to put together the largest formation we could achieve. The last 4 days started trying for 138 way formation and over the next two days, slots were changed and some unfortunate people were dropped off before the team managed to get 130 to do their best jump all at the same time. The photo's were taken and sent back to Australia for judging and withing the hour we got the message we were waitng for......."the formation of 130 was complete and correct.....Yahoo!!!!!!!!!!! Please click the above for the videos and news clips.
