|Where The Fun Doesn't Stop At The Sunset Drop!|
The Drop-Out Club from Essex, England, specializes in turning people into skydivers at exotic locations such as sunny Florida and the African wild! The group bills themselves as "A group of normal, everyday people who love to throw themselves out of airplanes"! In fact, all club members have full time jobs outside the Drop-Out Club but they try to get into the air as often as they can.
One inspiration for starting the club was a skydiver named Jamie Goggin. He helped the group get their qualifications in the USA. Unbelievably, they did not know Jamie, never met him in person, and only had talked to him on the telephone or over the 'Net. But Jamie set up their course and place to train. When asked what they could do for him in return for all his hard work, he replied, "Just help someone else to skydive". So this is one reason they exist...to put something back into this wonderful sport!
This non-profit club gets the chance to travel with groups to Florida and South Africa, and they get discounted flights through the company they use. For more information on trips, courses and the club, check out their web site at http://www.dropoutclub.com/
