New TD-I Alejandro

Tuesday, 5.03.2013

Alejandro Tandem MasterWe were pleased by the visit of the South-American couple Rossina (Uruguay) and Alejandro (Argentina) who have moved to Europe in order to work in the skydiving industry. While Rossina has already managed her tandem rating in the past, it was now turn for Alejandro to become a USPA and UPT Tandem Instructor. Ale did a great job and showed the needed performance on his evaluation. We therefore are happy to present him as a new tandem instructor and wish him the best of luck for his upcoming working season!

Alberto Tandem MasterWe welcome Alberto from Mexico who is already long time in the sport and a very experienced tandem master. Alberto has been without jumping for a while and wanted to get back into business for this season. He took the initiative and travelled to Greece for a weekend where Marcus trained him on his recurrency procedures. With a short refresher and some recurrency jumps, Alberto is now back in the air and ready to take passengers for a joy ride. Thanks for your visit and have a great season!
