Chance Goes Skydiving

For Chance's 20th birthday, the fam got him a skydive. Chance decided to do Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) instead of a tandem, meaning he would pull his own ripcord and steer his own canopy after opening.

Cassy shot all ground photos. Thanks to Ryan for the good aerial photos and video.

After 8 hours of ground school, Chance rehearses his skydive with his AFF instructors. Ray, the dude on the left, shot video for some Wings of Blue 4-way jumps back when Luc was on the team.

Not scared (yet).

Chance boards the Caravan that would take him to 12,000 ft above ground level.

"Prop, up, down, arch!" He prepares to leave the plane.

Nice body position! He rocked this skydive.

Chance checks his altitude and prepares to deploy his main parachute.


"Dude, I couldn't breathe up there!"
Luc: "That was the most fun I've had in a long time."
