Looking for Student Training - 270 lb Student Can't Post

Hello all,

I have a friend who is currently stationed in Afghanistan and is coming home soon. He has a residence in the Philippines but will be visiting the Western US for an extended stay in spring/summer.

He has done a few S/L jumps in Ohio, prior to military training, when he was 230-250. The aging process has provided another 20 lbs since then. He would like to get licensed while he is in the States.

I have done a bit of searching and read every post I can find dealing with heavy students, etc. I am, however, having difficulty locating a DZ which can accommodate larger students.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? DZs, phone numbers, etc.

Thanks and Blue Skies in advance,
Rick

Check with Deland. A few years ago they taught a guy that was over 300.

We took a fireman friend of mine about 7 years ago AFF at Perris. They were the only DZ with a student rig for a 6'6" 255lb person.
