PD New Beginning

Our sincerest condolences to the families of the deceased and all their friends at Skydive Spaceland.


  • This pilot was well loved by quite a few other dz’s. Skydive Georgia (where he trained), The Gold Coast Skydiver’s where he took his first jump into the seat, and Connecticut Parachutists Inc. He was a great friend, a fun person to jump with, and a pretty doggone good pilot (& instructor). So, BSBD Rodeo. You will be missed.

  • RIP Bryan! He was well liked at Skydive Houston as our pilot for a month.

    I’m not sure who the other person was that died, but RIP to him or her.

    My thoughts go out to all of the family and friends.

    Blue skies. KWB.
