Featured Friday - Giacamo Foglia

September 16, 2015

Skydive Arizona is a big drop zone. No - a GINORMOUS drop zone with a lot of people from visiting jumpers to local jumpers, to staff, pilots, instructors, ground crew, maintenance, manifest to teams, event orgnizers 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, meet a quiet guy who's a total bad ass hailing all the way from Italy, Giacamo Foglia!
