Tunnel Time Advice for a returning jumper - Airkix Can't Post

I have not jumped for a long time and am slowly getting "my sh*t" together to get back into the air.

I have made 70 jumps, but this was long ago and so one of my first steps is to get some tunnel time to rediscover and brush up on my skills.

I have had a look at Airkix website, but I am lost as to what would be best for me. I dont think one of their starter packages would suit me, but I understand that i am not a "Pro-flyer" also.

Someone gave me the number of an instructor there to discuss. But I want to get the maximum benefits I can for the money I spend.

Anyone got any ideas? Should I just do a package or should I get personal 1 on 1 with someone.

Better yet, if anyone has made a similar return from a lay off, what did you do?

Thanks for any advice.

I just returned from having 9 years off. alls i had to do was a ground refresher and then did a 1 and 1 with a pff instructor then i was cleared to jump on my own. woo hoo new gear just showed up last week.It's kinda like riding a bike you dont forget what your doing but i was a little rusty. Go to the Dz and get refreshed and then decide what u wana work on at the tunnel.

Welcome Back dude.

"If you're a skydiver you're also a Pro-Flyer" - Airkix website.

Just tell them you've not done tunnel before and they'll show you the intro video just like everyone else's first time. Airkix has lots of fantastic coaches and instructors who coach - you're unlikely to go wrong!
