101 years old passenger

Recommended Posts

Last Friday June the 27th 2014 at Voltige, a DZ in Quebec Canada, I did a tandem with Armand Gendreau. It was to celebrate his 101 th birthday witch took place three days earlier. Since the weather was not appropriate on that day for such a jump, we decide with the family to do it Friday night on sunset. Thanks to the family and the support of my partners and staff everything went well and it was a success. It should also be a guiness record. On landing Armand said ¨I am ready to do another one tomorrow…It would a great hobby !!

Not sure how to do a clicky.

It is now official.
On June the 27th 2014 at Voltige Armand Gendreau became the oldest man to do a tandem jump at 101 years and 3 days old.
He broke a 14 + years old record hold by Bjarne Maeland a Norwégian who did a tandem jump from 10500 on September the 8th 1999 at the âge of 101 years and 21 days old. Since it was too late for the 2015 book it will be in the.

Here is two clicky but I am not sure how to do it so it work.

Look like I don't read my post enough. On that one I was so focus on the 101 years old of Armand my passenger that I write that the previous record holder was Bjarne Maeland that did a tandem jump from 10499 feets on september the 8th 1999 at the âge of ...101 years and 21 days ... but in fact it was 100 years old and 21 days! Since then I heard that a mâle passager did a tandem jump in california for his 101th birthday. If he did it on his birthday then Armand Gendreau still old it by 3 days.
From what I remember the jump in California was 2 years ago and probably in Perris. If every body have some info about the jump in California please let me know so I can advise the family of Armand who by the way passed away two years ago.
