PD Factory Team adds two new members

The PD Factory team announced in a press release that 2 new members would be joining the team: Julien Guiho (France) and Gage Galle (Hawaii, USA).

VFS jumpers no doubt know Julien as a current World Champ with France’s “Team 4 Speed” (Vertical Formation Skydiving). Julien has competed in Canopy Piloting around his busy VFS training schedule, but will now be making the switch to Canopy Piloting full-time. Julien will continue to be based in Europe.  Gage Galle is already well-known on the US Canopy Piloting scene and plans to tackle the international scene this coming summer. 

We wish the new members all the best and look forward to see what they will bring in 2013!

Sunset flocking for Jonathan Tagle

It is still early in California, where Jonathan’s family and friends have gathered to celebrate his life.
At other dropzones around the world, today’s sunset has come and gone. We know that many will make the last jump of the day to celebrate JT’s memory and life, the reports are already coming in.
If you can’t get on a load, be sure to send a little love to his family, teammates and friends as they gather at Skydive Elsinore for a sunset flocking jump.

Adrenaline Obsession has printed up a batch of shirts dedicated to JT. Visit their website to place your order for one. Proceeds from shirt sales go to Jonathan’s family.

Jonathan – we will miss you.
