Let's Skydive

Halloween!
Exit from DC3

Jerry started skydiving in 1966 while stationed with the U. S. Army in Germany. Since then he has made over 1100 jumps, earning the Gold Wing Award from the United States Parachute Association. Jerry holds an Expert Parachutist License and has received the Star Crest Award, given for participation in precision free-fall formations. He has jumped from a plane as small as a two-seater Piper Cub to one as large as a DC-3 carrying over 40 skydivers. Some unusual jumps include those made from a hot-air balloon and off the side of a mountain.

Jerry jumped mainly for fun, but also jumped at several fairs and air shows in Indiana, including the Grant County 4-H Fair, Tipton Pork Festival, Van Buren Popcorn Festival, Greentown Glass Festival, Annual Upland Labor Day Rodeo, Fort Wayne Three Rivers Festival, and the Marion, Anderson and Kokomo Air Show.

Combining his interest in photography with skydiving, he jumped with a helmet mounted motorized camera. One of his photographs was published on the front cover of the national parachuting magazine, "PARACHUTIST" and two were used by Dan Poynter in his book, "Parachuting - The Skydiver's Handbook".
