BLESMA Trans4mers

Recommended Posts


If anyone is around Skydive Elsinore between 24th March and 7th April 2013, please pop in and say hi.

BLESMA (British Limbless ExServiceMans Association) will be out there training 8 new jumpers via AFF; with the aim of getting them fully qualified. The plan is then to meet up with 2 members from the trip last year to create a 4 way FS team (http://www.facebook.com/BLESMATrans4mers?fref=ts)

Coaching will be Army Euphoria (the British Army FF team), we will hopefully be coming back over to help run a sister event for the Wounded Warrior project in June at Skydive Perris.

The guys will be doing 2 tandems on Sat 16th Feb, were we will teach them canopy control and basic body position. On the second tandem we expect them to register it's pull time and deploy the main parachute, and then steer it to the ground and land; all this is under the watchful eye of the TI.

We will then take then to the tunnel where they will fly for 1 hour each before leaving for California, and the AFF course its self.

If any wounded warriors or people just want to come by and say hi; please do!

At long last the light at the end of the tunell isnt an on coming train!!!
