This Friday, February 2nd, the Silver Wings start their annual winter training. The training cycle will last the entire month of February. Each year the Wings use the downtime from demonstration jump season to train new instructors, certify demonstrators with PRO ratings, and build jump numbers for newly certified jumpers. Greg Windmiller will hold a week long canopy course focused on target accuracy and hold classes for B License canopy training requirements.
Most of the month the team jumps from the Cessna 182 from between 3,500 and 5,500. Friday through Sunday the team will jump the King Air. However, select other weather make-up weekdays they may jump the King Air. Civilian licensed skydivers are welcome to come jump during any day the team is training. So come get on loads when open slots are available!
Skydive Atlanta is Georgia's top facility for tandem skydiving, solo skydive certification, and has the Intrastate Paratroop Carry certification fro the Department of Defense.
