Yes we have improvement! Our twin otter is the most visible as you
pull up the drive way. Another noticable improvment is all the jumping
thats going on. This past weekend we had more canopys in the air then
Hartwood has seen in 20 years at one time. I know thats not saying
much as of late but we are pretty proud of it anyway. Today (a monday)
we flew 3 loads as well and we were doing hybrid jumps. I know thats a
new word for Hartwood. If thats not a change what is? All are welcome
to come check out our planes, nice soft packing area and new attitude.
We plane on jumping 7 days a week but please call ahead so we can make
sure one of our pilots are available. Our phone is 540-752-4784 or you

beginning!!!

Any old timers there who jump just for fun and don't care about dirt diving
or turning lots of points?

So far we 've had a good mix of jumpers. Some older that jumper here
in the 70s-80s and them some that went even born till then. All in all
I've been very happy with the turn out of the last couple week.

Hi Tami,  Hope I'll be seeing you at Hartwood  sometime in the future.  Moving
to D.C. in three weeks.  Was at the DZ a week ago when I was looking for a
place to live, nice people, nice DZ  and great looking Otter.

Well, for the next 6 months I'll be living at the Famcamp at Andrews AFB.  I
will be able to park my RV there during the winter, but will have to find
another place come April or so as they get full of reservations.  I guess I'll
have to find another RV camp somewhere thats dosen't want an arm a leg and my
first born male child.  I will be working in downtown D.C.
