Tony also has a distinguished military career having served for 25 years in the British Army. In that time he traveled to many parts of the world experiencing many different events. The army also taught him discipline, professionalism and attention to detail all of which is a reflection in how he operates and manages his AFF packages. As a competitor Tony has also won numerous awards and medals in various disciplines from National and Military Parachute Championships.
SkydiveXtreme is very particular about who we use as instructors and Tony has a small but dedicated and professional group of individuals on his team. He is fortunate that over the years he has grown to know his instructors not just professionally but personally also. Some selected instructors were even trained by Tony himself as a novice and therefore he has seen firsthand the progression and transition that they have made. He has a pool of about six that are located in the UK and ten that are based in the US creating a unique package in that SkydiveXtreme is the only school in the US that can offer either BPA or USPA AFF packages coached by BPA or USPA instructors.
Unlike most other schools SkydiveXtreme believes that one of the most important factors is the one to one interaction between the student and instructor. Therefore we dedicate the same instructor throughout the AFF Course program. This helps the student to cope with anxiety issues they may encounter but also to build a trusting relationship. With trust comes confidence and if you’re confident then you will progress.
Note: Where Skydiving is a fun and high octane activity it’s also a high risk activity. Regardless of the level of instruction there will always be that element of risk. However here at SkydiveXtreme we pride ourselves on attention to detail and safety is paramount. The risk factor will always be there but we help to minimise the risk by simply the interaction between student and instructor. Rest assured, you are in good hands.
