Kelly

Skydive Franz has welcomed Kelly to the team as a tandem master and skydive camerawomen.

Kelly from Taranaki New Zealand, is part of a family of rally drivers so was no stranger to adrenaline as a youngster. She had always been keen to try skydiving but her parents requested she waited until she was 21 and she did her first solo jump the day after her 21st birthday. Since then she’s gone on to become a tandem master, AFF (advanced freefall) instructor, and skydive camerawoman and she’s now done more than 3300 skydives.

Her career has taken her around the world.

“I’ve skydived in Dubai, Jordan, Kuwait, NZ, Australia and Norway,” says Kelly. “No one jump is the same which makes it exciting.”

Being a female tandem master allowed her to take women skydiving in the Middle East where female customers don’t jump with a male tandem master.

“I like being involved in people’s once in a lifetime experience,” says Kelly. “One of the ladies said during the skydive that it’s the freest she’s ever been and the freest she’ll ever be. And I was glad I could help her with that.”

Kelly’s enjoying being back amongst the amazing scenery in New Zealand and loves skydiving in Franz Josef.

“The views are awesome the place is sick, it’s good to be home.”
