Skydive Franz Welcomes Sarah to the Team

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Sarah has joined the Skydive Franz team as a load co-ordinator and ground crew.

Originally from Greymouth, Sarah has spend the last six years working in Franz in the summer and at Ohau in the winter where she managed a café and went snowboarding as much as possible.

Although only recently starting in the role, Sarah has been enjoying the change of scene.

“The interaction with the skydiving customers is awesome, everyone’s super stoked,” says Sarah. “It’s a lot less stressful and different to my other jobs, it’s fun seeing everyone excited and happy, it’s really nice.” 

Sarah has now done six tandem skydives and she’s happy to offer advice especially to first time or nervous skydivers.

“It helps to talk to people, I know what they’re in for and if they’re nervous I tell them to try to relax as the staff know what they’re doing,” says Sarah “The nervous people are the most excited after their skydive, they seem to have more fun.”

Sarah’s also used the new job as a kind of personal case study.

“I’ve thought about getting my skydiving licence, just to go skydiving for fun,” says Sarah. “Working here was my way of deciding if I want to go and do it, and I do.”
