    Working as a packer

    im also 18 years old 59 jumps and living in spain i fort about moving back to england to be a packer and went and spent my summer packing and jumping in england but my advice has to be to get a proper job that can fund your skydiving better i come from a skydiving family and my dad made the desision to devote his life to sport and work through parachuting and allthough in the end he ended up owning his own dz he got lucky he spent alot of time living in a tent not even being able to afford to go the bar after spending my summer jumping and working to buy all my own gear im now cracking down in school and hoping next year to move back to england and go through uni while packing an working on weekends/summer but linking my degree to do with parachuting and aircraft to try keep my interested also rather then the usa england may also be a place to look at working if you are still interested allthough the weather isnt as good it can $10 for sports and $15 for tandems and theres a few busy DZs one of my friends will do 80 a day on a gd weather day hope that helps Falling from the top floor your lungs fill like parachutes

  9. i didnt think most people would mind i did finjd it annoying though when i was waiting for a lift which couldnt take off becuase not all the kit had been packed in time! my dad jumped a pack job that my 6 eyar old brother had done... he didnt intend to jump it but mty brother packed at the end of one day then my dad was planning on re packing it in the morning but got on the earlybird laod and forgot about it!

  10. a couple weeks back i went back to the DZ i grew up on started jumping, i went there to jump and was also going to pack so i could a bit of extra money and do some more jumps then when i arrived i was told by the CCI (who gave me my packing licence and let me pack all last summer) that i couldnt pack becuase i was only 17 and the jumpers wouldnt want to jump anything packed by a kid i didnt think much of it at the time but when i got home and mentioned it to my dad he was fuming and thought it was well out of order so i was just wondering would you guys let a 17 year old pack for you? ive had my packing licence for over a year and am perfectily current Falling from the top floor your lungs fill like parachutes
