Tandem Skydiving at 90 Years Old!

Billy our tandem master is enjoying a bit of fame at the moment! And Ruby has become a bit of a skydiving super star.

Last month we had the pleasure of having Ruby out at our drop zone in Parakai. Ruby wanted to tick tandem skydiving off her buck list and at Skydive Auckland were the people to help.

At 90 years old she is a very cool and brave grannie. Ruby decided she didn’t want a cup of tea and cupcakes for her birthday… she wanted to go SKYDIVING!!! Ruby said ‘if she can do it, anyone can’. Billy looked after Ruby for her tandem skydive and was even lucky enough to have Ruby sing to him on their way down.

Skydive Auckland were lucky to host Jump Start 2014.

Jump Start was set up 8 years ago to raise funds to allow 50 kids living with cancer from CanTeen and Project K to complete a tandem skydive. This year all 50 kids got the chance to tandem skydive from Parakai with us from 13000ft.
