An Update on the Skydiving and Parks and Recreation Situation

I mentioned the other day how skydivers were having difficulty getting permits to jump and threatened with arrest if they were to do so.

It now appears that there was some mix up in communication and that skydivers will be allowed to jump only on one day (JULY 4th) during a thirty minute time interval.

I received the following email this morning from the owner of the company:

…After all the fuss about no insurance, they are going to allow up to 10 skydivers into ballpark 5 between 4:30 and 5:00PM for one skydive, but still no tandem skydiving, as that is commercial activity…

So needless to say… I won’t be jumping this weekend as I’ve only tandem skydived before.

So you Kona folks make sure you look up into sky between 4:30 and 5:00 and check-out the skydivers that will be dropping in on your town!

  1. I watched the show “I Shouldn’t Be Alive” last night — it was about a tragic skydiving accident in Costa Rica. Did you catch it?

    • I’ve heard about that show and seen episodes from it… not that particular one.

      I did hear about the story of a lady who went ziplining and… well never mind… LOL
