Flight-1 Canopy Skills Course at Skydive Deland Can't Post

Test jumper Mike Olivella has signed on to meet the growing demand for Flight-1s canopy skills camps at Skydive DeLand, the world-famous drop zone across the road from the Performance Designs factory in Florida. Mike will be helping the PD Factory Team with its Flight-1 Essential Skills Course beginning immediately, and the Advanced Skills Course starting this fall.

Mike jumps for PDs testing facility, DeLand Research Corp., making many hundreds of jumps a year on just about every model parachute that PD makes, according to PD Factory Teams Shannon Pilcher. The team selected Mike for his remarkable canopy piloting talents and the ability to share his skills in a friendly and effective manner. Flight-1s one-day Essential Skills Course teaches jumpers how to land more safely and accurately and gives them the confidence to descend in larger groups. More and more, jumpers are seeing the value for this type of course and signing up.

Individuals and groups up to six people can register with Mike for the Essential Skills Course at or through Skydive DeLand at 386-738-3559 for these dates in 2008:
