At least the dams are filling up!

For South Africa's National Women’s Day / Week / Month we celebrate Valentina Tereshkova, the 26 year old skydiver who, whilst sitting atop a modified intercontinental ballistic missile about to launch to space said

Hey sky, take off your hat. I’m on my way!” 

Recruited partly because she’d already made 126 skydives, Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman to fly in space on the 16th June 1963.  

In her one and only space flight, she accumulated more space-time than all American astronauts combined at the time; is still to this day the youngest woman to have flown in space; the only woman to have ever flown a solo space mission; and the only woman to have gone to space and landed back on Earth under her own parachute…. 

After manually controlling her miniature, 1960s spacecraft around planet Earth 48 times (once every 88 minutes), and manually navigating her re-entry back into the Earth’s atmosphere, Tereshkova ejected at around 20,000 ft from her tiny, very-hot, metal-descending-at-an-alarming-rate capsule... and skydived back to Earth!

Having flown 1.97 million kilometres, and after 2 days, 22 hours and 50 minutes in space, Valentina landed under her own parachute near today's Kazakhstan-Mongolia-China border. She then exchanged her ration packs and enjoyed dinner with local villagers who had helped her out of her spacesuit.

"Once you've been in space, you appreciate how small and fragile the Earth is."  Valentina Tereshkova

SATSA 50th Anniversary Conference

Mike Rumble arrived from the sky at the AfrikaBurn themed SATSA 50th Anniversary Conference and new SATSA logo unveiling at the Wild Coast Sun.

Celebrating the launch of the new SATSA logo and SAYTC Merger.

The Dependable Umbrellas of The Sky

Presentation given by Mike Rumble at the SATSA 50th Anniversary Conference held at the Wild Coast Sun on Wednesday 10th July 2019.

"A fascinating look at the skies from a very different angle. Spanning the ages from the beginning of time to modern-day space exploration, ‘The dependable umbrellas of the sky’ will show us how nature gives us all the clues; how parachutes have been, and continue to be a part of modern day life; and how all of this relates to tourism today.

You’ll come away with a new way of looking at your old ideas of the sky!"

New Head-Up World Record

Recently a new world record for Head-Up Flying was set at Skydive Chicago.

An official 84-way record formation was successfully built.

During the many practice jumps, at one point an unofficial record of 100 was built... but officially the record sits at 84 as the formation has to be held for a specific minimum amount of time.

And it all starts with that first jump...
