New jump plane for 2010
« on: February 25, 2010, 05:59:40 pm »
Skydive Tecumseh is very pleased to announce that we will be getting a PAC 750XL as our main jump craft this year.

The PAC is designed specifically with Skydiving in mind. It will take you to 14000ft in as little as 8 minutes.

Only a few years old this aircraft will be the fastest, safest jumpship in the midwest.

It will be arriving on the 26th March and we will be open for fun jumpers.

Blue Skies,

Franz

One very cool thing about the PAC asides from it's speed will be our ability to fly light and I mean light,  loads during the week. You can expect to see a lot of activity during the week this season.

It will hold up to 16 people. But the tendency will be to fly it with 10-14 people for rapid turns.

Not that I will be doing hop & pops. Will this Pac be used for all jumping? Or is there going to be a 182 around?

We still plan to get a 182. The one we want to buy will not be available until mid April though. We do expect to use the PAC for hop & pops as well though.

The 182 we are planning on buying is a completly refurbished wide body with 300 horse up front so it will be a nice upgrade from our old 182s.
