Want to make your Airborne Reunion Special?
Can you get a minimum of 15 paratroopers together on the day?
Want to get those knees in the breeze once more?
As long as EVERYONE who wishes to participate in jumping was trained as a military paratrooper, and can provide proof of such, The Phantom Airborne Brigade can assist you in achieving the objective of one more jump.
SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.
IN EVERYTHING THAT WE DO, WE NEVER COMPROMISE SAFETY FOR ANY REASON.
FIRST QUESTIONS ALWAYS ASKED ARE HOW MUCH? AND WHAT DO I GET FOR MY MONEY?
A C47 operating costs are over $2000 per hour with a minimum of 3 hours and the Twin Otter Approx $2000. From experience we know we can get at least 2 jumps each (101st reunion got 3 in). A C47 can take a maximum of 24 and a Twin Otter 15- no equipment - paratroopers. The First Jump is included in the initial fee as is one year membership of PAB, subsequent jumps are at the then current membership rate.
What you get for your money is;
1) A once in a lifetime chance to jump again
2) Sustained Airborne Training supervised throughout by qualified and current Jumpmasters
3) Our equipment is current military issue, steerable, and UNALTERRED. Our Air Items are maintained, and packed, by Military trained Master Riggers employed by one of the major suppliers of Special Operations parachutes, at their manufacturing facility.
4) One year Membership of PAB.
We do not "issue wings" as we only jump with military qualified active duty soldiers and veterans who have ALREADY earned them.
And ALL of this for approx. $350.00 (approx. because if we get C47 this is highly dependent upon on the day fuel prices).
As you can see we are not in this to make money (We are a not for profit Veteran Organization) and that is why we need a minimum of 15 fully paid in advance to book the aircraft and equipment.
To answer some of the other common questions...
