We will be having an unofficial wingsuit weekend on the 1st of Aug.
Craig Browne and Luke Godfrey will be doing their wingsuit first flight course this coming weekend and Lehan Bornman will be sitting in on ground schooling for his pre-requirements for his wingsuit coach rating Heeha!!! Look at our members go.
The course consists of 2.5 hours ground school (on Friday the 31st July) and 5 jumps each, with their coach over the weekend. (1st and 2nd August).
This will allow the students to get Cat1 and be eligible to do Solo Jumps and Jump with a Cat3 Wingsuiter.
The course costs R800 per person and payable to Pasa.
Saturday night will be a good time for a Wingsuit Seminar which Oliver Nothen will present. The Seminar is geared for complete Newbie’s to Wingsuiting as well as an introduction to the New Acro and Performance WS Nationals. Lets get the wingsuiters out and Ollie will be available for briefing and de-briefing on Acro and Performance training. This will be benificial to all skydivers. Current and future wingsuiters alike.
This will be a SSA supported event and Oliver will be bringing SSA Wingsuits and FlySights for jumpers to use if needed.
We all thought it to be short notice, but that this would be a great test weekend to see what the interest is for future wingsuit lovers. Please join us and show your support and we will be sure to put it on the calendar for the year to come and make it a frequent event at Skydive Robertson.
