90210's Trevor Donovan doing AFF at Skydive Elsinore.

"In order to make the jump on his own, he had to undergo 6 hours of ground training where he was taught everything from aerodynamics to parachute operations, landing patterns and of course, emergency procedures. The training was provided by the awesome duo behind the popular AXIS Flight School, run by Brianne Thompson and Niklas Daniel." - Hollywood Bubble

Past Events

Mixed Formation Flights

If you received the May issue of Parachutist in your mail box, you already know about the very impressive cover shot that was taken by Phil Peggs over Skydive Moab in Utah. It depicts Jonathan Tagle landing his canopy on Jeff Nebelkopf's (wingsuiter) back, as part of the Project XRW jumps held during the Operation Freefall Event that raised funds for sexual assault prevention and healing programs.

Less than a month later, JT agreed to share some of his knowledge with myself and two other wing-suit pilots (Barry Holubeck and David Gershfeld).

On the right you will find a compilation of our combined footage for a mixed formation video log. In an effort to collect data on what makes mixed formation flights between a canopy and a wing-suit possible, we need to collect as much data as possible. Since this type of flying is still in its infancy, understanding all the variables involved becomes key.

This is the beginning...

PDFT Training Camp

The PD Factory Team arrived at Spaceland to train on the gigantic pond during Blue's last day of training. Here are some exit shots I took during the camp while we were sharing the caravan. Also featured on the PD Blog.
