Happenings

New Sponsors!

I would like to welcome UPT as my newest sponsor.

UPT is totally committed to their customers, through the quality and performance in the harness and container systems they design, build, and deliver.

Please visit their website and take a look at all their great products.

UPT is also on FaceBook!

I would also like to welcome CYRES as my newest sponsor.

Having an AAD that you can trust, no matter the discipline of skydiving you choose, allows you to focus on the task at hand.

Please visit their website and take a look at all their great products.

Canopy Flocking

Elsinore’s first “Flock Fridays” was a great success. PD Factory Team member Jonathan Tagle organized the event. About ten people participated throughout the day. Formations included “V” and “X” shapes with compulsory points.
