JYRO BLAH FAIRY....

Recommended Posts

The skydiving world today lost one of its special talents. A great skydiver, innovator and thinker. One of lifes special people. I've known him since he was a student skydiver, but his talent and skill left us far behind, long ago.

Anyone jumping an Icarus canopy.....spare him a thought today. And thank him.

RIP Jyro.

Oh my god this terrible news. Ive known paul since at least the early eightys, this just sucks. What happened? He was a true innovater. I remember him designing and building gear bags at Jim McLeans house when they were roomies, he took that raw talent and went far with it. The world has lost a true innovator.

RIP Jyro.

Yeah, same Jyro....they only made one of him.

NZ 4 way RW team, founder of NZ Aerosports, maker of all things Icarus. Known and loved around the world.

Passed away in LA last Saturday.....

Real name Paul Martyn, but has always been known as Jyro. When asked why he was called Jyro, the reply epitomised his attitude.

Jump Yer Ring Out........Jyro.
