Photos and Video
Can we get one video for our whole group?
No, our smaller aircraft holds four people and the pilot because the camera person takes up a spot each tandem with video will go one at a time. When we have larger planes the time/distance gap between jumper exits preclude a camera person from being able to film more than one student at a time. Each tandem that purchases video will have their own videographer.
