RoamingDZ.com in cooperation with Florida jumper Jaclyn Kaylor and the city of Americus,Ga. presents the first Lindbergh Boogie.
Souther Field in Americus was the site of Charles Lindbergh's first solo flight. The city of Americus,located about 35 miles west of Cordele,Ga. and I-75, use to have an aviation festival in celebration of that event. When it was decided to revive that festival it was Jaclyn who suggested including skydiving as part of the event. Jaclyn has gotten full support of the city officals, the airport and the community.
Which brings us to now. The event will run May 2nd and 3rd with jumps starting on Friday afternoon as soon as there are enough people there. They are bringing the PAC-750 up from Deland, Fla. Registration is only $15 and jumps will be $20. Yes, I said $20
RV and tent camping welcome on the airport and Jaclyn will post the local hotel info. There is at least one shower at the airport available to campers.
Look for a post from Jaclyn in regards to food vendors and entertainment.
I also plan for someone to hold a bigway skills camp for anyone that would like to start working their way toward the Georgia State Record attempts that are in the works.There will be several World Team members on hand with a wealth of knowledge for those interested in learning the art of big way. There may be a small fee for the camp dependent of who is brought in and how many are interested. I have permission for a seperate thread for this camp so please post your interest there.
Hell, I might even get to skydive at this one Look for posts here and on RoamingDZ.com
$20.00 jumps! COOL! Patty will now only have to work the corner on Friday nights (pay for my jump tickets) and she can take saturday off to wash my truck, mow the grass and still get the house cleaned on sunday.
Heck, I've jumped a shitload of aircraft but never the PAC750... It's about like a Caravan, right? the door on a pac is about as wide as an otter. maybe slightly more narrow. BUT it's a bunch shorter than an otter door. shouldn't be a prob. for you billy. but for us 6 ft and over guys. It can make the climbout a bit of a challenge
