in mind this week--

Leaning up against anything in the plane is risky business, but especially in the back of a Twin Otter. The seatbelt bar across the rear bulkhead knows just how to nudge out your reserve pin--and right there by the door. Keep your rig clean and safe: Sit up straight!



Providing you confidence, control, and comfort on every skydive. Two FAA master parachute riggers to take care of your needs in  Skydive Orange's fully-equipped loft.

Parachutes packed perfectly.
