Over the 4th of July weekend, AXIS Flight School visited Skydive Suffolk in Virginia to coach and organize. Skydive Suffolk is the premier skydiving center in the Virginia Beach area and has been in operation since 1960.
On the first day, the DZ enjoyed good weather with partly cloudy skies. Jumps were made from the DZ’s PAC 750 and Skyvan until sunset. Nik and Brianne oraganized some challenging yet fun jumps for the locals, including belly and freefly disciplines.
A couple of attempts were made at the Virginia state head down record, and for the sunset load AXIS organized a swoop and chug to close out the day. Unfortunately the weather quickly turned that evening and did not clear for the remainder of the event.
We look forward to returning to this awesome drop zone and highly recommend other jumpers check it out if you are in the area. Here are some images by Jimmy Hatch for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
