A very busy night for the Foundry crew at Airkix. 

All mixed up, from AFF coaching to 6-way carnage.

The Birds

A blow-out weekend for weather at Hibaldstow, but still, some flyers turn up. One such group are the Birds.

Their full name is a bit heavy for press, but let's take a look at them anyway.

Dawn, Dean, Kane and Andy are a strange bunch. With exception to four letter names, they don't have much in common. They are from all over the country, different ages, lifestyle, and very different attitudes to skydiving. But get them together on a monthly basis... well they just seem to work.

Another hottie!

Saturday was a slow start, but  when it broke the DZ wasa fury of energy and our fleet flew nonstop. Highlights this weekend include: 

John Andrew's 500 jump and 50th Birthday Party

A smart FS1 for Eric Valentanavics with Ant Hill. 

FF2 for Hannah Broughton. 

WS1 for Kane 'New Skool' Jackson

Sunday brought more good times, with a special focus on lower experience belly flyers as well as advanced freefly groups and wingsuit.

The weather gods do seem to be smiling on us this year with another weekend of glorious sunny blues. 

No event this time round, just good old fashioned FS and FF walk up fun.

Stubert and Jakub on the gogo. A few shots. 





Weekend 21-22nd May

A Stunning weekend for the DZ yet again, with Stubert's Intermediates and Paul Cooper's Freefly sequential, topped off with some Wingsuiting. 

With two full groups for the Intermediates, Stubert and Cobi's hands were full after losing Saturday to bad weather. But fear not, they did produce some great skydives, including an incredible bigway for the end of the weekend.
