Staff & Jobs

NEW ! >>> Staff for the 2002 Season
Chicagoland Skydiving in Hinckley, IL is looking for full-time and part-time staff for the 2002 season. We are a busy student operation with great people and great facilities and aircraft. Our season runs March - November. Contact for further information.

NEW ! >>> Full Time Manifester
Skydive Chicago is looking for one full time manifester and possibly one full time accountant. These are open positions that could develop into career positions. We are growing in many different areas and in need of multi talented office personnel that can assist in the various dimensions of the business. Also, I am deeply involved in a trading company and considering expansion. If that occurs I am looking for another assistant that is good with people, computers, financial accounts, orders and quick mathematical equations. This is an unrelated position to skydiving but is in operation at the airport. On the skydiving side we are looking for a highly qualified AFP instructor to help us for the 2002 season. You still must have an AFF rating even though we are not teaching the AFF program (outdated). Also, we can use 2 more tandem masters for the season capable of making 10 to 15 jumps per day professionally. Our staff will be approximately 80 people on weekends next year. All interested people contact me personally at

The theft of these items has effectively wiped out the owned student training parachuting equipment of the Newcastle Sport Parachute Club (un-insured) so any information heard by any members would be greatly appreciated. Please contact the club on (02) 4931 1040 or Kim Hardwick (Chief Instructor) on (02) 6672 1764.
Please pass this info on to anyone who you think can help, parachuting equipment is not cheap and any leads that may help us to recover these rigs would be fantastic. Also if anyone can offer support to NSPC please call them and let them know A.S.A.P. Thanks heaps!
