About the Author

Kim Emerson made his first skydive in 1989 and has since logged about 4,000 jumps. His earliest love was for freestyle, and he was among the first American sitfliers in DeLand, FL. in 1992, where, with Niklas Gummeson and others, he helped to create the now standard exit known as the train. Kim was a USPA rated AFF Instructor for six years, Safety & Training Advisor for six, and is currently President, as well as Executive Director, at The Blue Sky Ranch in Gardiner, NY. Kim is also a videographer and video editor. His articles on hook turns, Team Firestarter and the final World Skydiving Convention at Quincy, Ill. were published in Drop Zone International Magazine, where he was Assistant Editor until that magazine went in after three fabulous issues. Kim lives in New York with his wife, Kate, two cats, a dog and ten chickens.


Marcus Antebi made his first jump in 1992 and has since logged 2,200 jumps. Marcus founded PIER Media and produced several best selling skydiving videos such as "Swoop," "Break-Away," "Fly Like A Pro," and "Pack Like A Pro." Marcus owned and operated PIER LTD, a skydiving equipment mail order company, for 6 years, 4 years of that time operating from The Blue Sky Ranch in Gardiner NY. He now lives and works in New York City and still skydives at The Blue Sky Ranch.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a wonderful reference for both my husband and myself after we completed AFF. It gives us solid information, and answers some questions that we have. It gives us some "how-to's" regarding buying rigs, which has helped us immensely. We would recommend this to any beginning skydiver. If you are looking for a more in-depth description of AFF, we recommend "Parachuting: The Skydiver's Handbook."
