Skydiving

  I started skydiving in the Ottawa-Gatineau area in 2003. I have actively been skydiving ever since then. Skydiving and Parachuting was the first of my love and passion for airsports, and the sport for which I have had the most accomplishments. I have completed over 700 jumps to date. I am a Coaching Association of Canada rated Skydiving Coach - Level 2. I also hold the following CSPA Instructional Ratings:
  • Jumpmaster (JM)
  • Ground Control Instructor (GCI)
  • Skydive School Instructor (SSI)
  • Skydive School Examiner (SSE)
I am certified Tandem Instructor. Here is my page dedicated to Tandem Skydiving. I hold a CSPA Exhibition Jump Rating (EJR). This enables organize and jump into schools, fairs, festival and airshows. Visit my Exhibition Jumps page to find out more! I am also a CSPA Certified Rigger and can inspect and repack reserve parachutes. My Parachute Rigging Services page has more information about this. I have experience in 4-way skydiving and big-way (large formation) skydiving. I currently hold the Canadian Large Formation Big-Way Record (along with 101-other people) for the largest Canadian Freefall Formation - 102 people! This jump was done on July 13, 2012 over Farnham, QC in Canada.
