The Team

Mark Meltzer, AF6IM, Jumper 1

Unlike just about everything else in life, this never loses its thrill…every jump is a heart stopper.”

Michael Gregg, KF6WRW, Jumper 2

“There are a few things in life that make life worth living. The exhilaration and rewards of skydiving continue to remind me that an overhead view of the earth at 120 mph puts skydiving in that list.”

Rob Fenn, KC6TYD, Jumper 3, Team Coordinator


In any sport there are inherent risks.  I’m sure you can appreciate that in skydiving you don’t get a lot of second chances.  As the Safety and Drop Zone Coordinator ( TacOps), it is my goal to ensure that our skydivers will be “in the air, on the air” for many jumps to come.

Troy Bigelow, WB7BIG, Jumper 4

Troy jumped for missions 26 through 29.  Unfortunately for us he has recently retired and moved to Washington.  He tells us he’ll be back when he can make it.
