Quick snap shot of the past 6 days skydiving at the Peterlee DZ with video slide show to follow soon. All in all 593 jumps were made including all 6 rounds of the BPA Accuracy Grand Prix, a few hundred regular skydives, 125 Tandem Skydives, 26 AFF, 18 AFFC, 15 Static Line and some solo student free fall including a 1st Free Fall. Our long serving 4 place aircraft G-PLEE was brought back on line Bank Holiday Monday afternoon seeing us through to the end of the day so enabling all who stayed with us to get their jumps in - that when our Supervan encountered a starting issue on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon. Great support from IAE & Bobby Bishop of Texas Turbine who worked with our Pilots over FaceTime to successfully resolve the issue before the end of the day. Great Team Effort all round. #LiveyourDream #Skydive#Supervan900
