    Dennis Chappell

    Learned that Dennis passed away on 1/31/2014 from a post on Facebook from his brother Phil, former DZO of Skydive SanMarcos. Dennis was a big help to me when I first started jumping.Still remember his hard landing when he broke his femur and back. Phil's comment when he came up to his brother "welcome to the club" RIP old friend.

    AFF instructor salary

    reminds me of a time long ago where a packer went up to the dzo and said we the packers have decided that we will pack for $6 instead Of $5. The DZO response " like hell you will you can pack your shit up and pack in Salado" Sorry Wendy.

    Allen Flynn D-7889

    Patrick Allen Flynn passed away November 26th after a 2 year battle with brain cancer. Allen,as he preferred to be called, was my AFF instructor and later my AFF I/E along with Glen Bangs and Lee Fairbank. You will be missed by many that learned and jumped with you here at SkyDive San Marcos. RIP my friend,

    Lake Erie tragedy-1967

    When teaching ground school I always use this tragedy as one of the reasons we don't jump through clouds!

    AAD requirement @ Skydive San Marcos

    It surprised me on the # old time jumpers that didnt have AADs at SSM. And staff most who probably had their AAds expire!. Take where the knee jerk jump came from a speed star! all different levels of experince! I would have no hesitation to jumpimg with a John Rich a Carol Lee a Weldon people who were jumping before AADs were on the market. I picked up a tandem rig after after it had been jumped> AAD not turned on ? the tandem instructour his response? I was doing tandems before there was Drouges, AADs

    AAD requirement @ Skydive San Marcos

    AAD requirement @ Skydive San Marcos

    I have 3 rigs, just recenly 2 have no AADs one my mirage with an Argus, banned, the 2nd a Cypress 12 years old good bye the third a racer never had an AAD. My pockets may have a little cushion! but I will be doing tandems to pay for these new AADs that I am forced to jump wiith at my home DZ. I have made it a policy not to take away from my family over skydiving financially.We have 1 instructor that has 6 rigs. bottom line there is no profit in teaching AFF
