Jean’s whirlwind adventure began with an idea that had been brewing for a year. Last summer, she tasted the thrill of skydiving during a tandem jump with The Atlantic School of Skydiving.

Although her realization sparked a visible media opportunity, Katy Jean never anticipated what lay ahead. According to reports, Dave Williamson, the operator of The Atlantic School of Skydiving, also joined her for another jump after she wrote about the initial experience. Jean approached him with a shocking proposition, wishing to commend an interview about skydiving while performing the sport. Surprisingly enough, Williamson accepted the atrocious challenge.

The Atlantic School of Skydiving, nestled in Maitland, boasts a striking red hangar standing out like a postage stamp on a lush green runway. While the plane serving as the duo’s launchpad landed and took off on the same grassy field, their experience, far from a gentle descent, began its course. Along with the feeling of a rogue trampoline ride during a hurricane, the record rainfall during the summer had even turned the terrain into a mushy challenge. Although Jean’s ambitious plan seemed to be threatened, the skydiving enthusiast never chose to give up.
