August 14, 2015

Skydive Arizona is a big drop zone. No - a GINORMOUS drop zone with a lot of people from visiting to local jumpers, to staff, pilots, instructors, ground crew, maintenance, manifest to teams, event organizers and load organizers!!! The Featured Friday series is aimed at getting to know the people that make Skydive Arizona work and rock

In this week's series, Skydive Arizona is featuring Tandem & AFF Instructor, Roberto Olazabal!

What inspired you to make your first jump? 
My divorce, so I did not get depressed :-)

Who is/was your skydiving mentor? 
Greg Frank (from Skydive Miami). He was me with on my first tandem and all my AFF progression. We are still friends.



What’s it like coming from your DZ in Nebraska and now working at SDAZ? 
Big impact! Very intimidating, but is all good now. I proved myself here that I can handle it. Very cool people and a lot to keep learning. Keep it humble :-)

What’s the best resource you’ve found as a newbie? 
Asking questions, we always learn something new. 

Speed Round (quickly choose without thought):

First load or sunset load? 
Sunset Load for sure

Sky or tunnel? Love both, but definitely the Sky

Angled or tracking? 

Swoop-n-chug or Just chug? 
Swoop-n-chug for sure( be safe)
