Trip to Eloy Arizona

Took three others to Eloy Arizona. My boss, the guy in the backseat named Andy had to get some of his Tandem parachutes rerigged. They are good for a certain time and then need to be rerigged. We all went over to Eloy Arizona and went to the Wind Tunnel to do some Parachuting in that and you are only about 5 to 10 feet above a net while the propeller blades blow the wind upwards around 140 to 150 miles per hour. It was a lot of fun and an enjoyable flight over there.
