Skydive Spaceland Coaches/Mentors

Here are the coaches rated by the U.S. Parachute Association who help students and other less experienced jumpers turn into rockstars. We are always looking for more mentors to help out! If you have at least 200 jumps and a coach rating, and you’d like to help newer skydivers while jumping for free, email Kevin for more information!

Fun Fact: I'm a big boned fella and I have embraced that, but I really don't like sinking out on bigways, therefore if I see you're not arching enough and becoming floaty, I may or may not take your shoes down with me to ensure I'm not on a solo skydive! 2nd Fun Fact I HATE TRAVELING. I served in the NAVY and have been with my wife since 1988 (yes I'm old but she's older) and since I started skydiving, I have traveled more than I have in all those years and have gotten a different perspective on life and I'm loving the views.
Skydiving: Favorite Part: 1. The people, and the atmosphere they bring. 2. The traveling to DZ's to jump different locations with different and the same folks. 3. The challenges of learning different disciplines. 4. Jumping with and mentoring my son (that shoulda been #1) 5. Shenanigans! I love shenanigans!!
