Genny is the newest member of the team, having joined in April 2015 just weeks before the IBA Indoor Skydiving Competition Series at iFLY Rosemont.
Genny brings an incredible amount of flying experience, focus, and determination to the team. These traits have already paid off by helping the team with it’s most recent accomplishment of a podium finish @ Rosemont, with a mere 5 hours of training.
How and when did you start flying in the tunnel?
I flew in the tunnel for the first time when I was 10 years old at iFLY’s original facility in Orlando, Florida. I actually wasn’t a big fan at first and I refused to fly again the next day. A few years later, a group of skydivers led by Michel Lemay, organized regular tunnel trips to the New Hampshire tunnel and I started becoming a bit more interested. It wasn’t until 2009 when Canada’s first facility opened in Montreal, that I really started developing a genuine liking for the sport. Shortly after, I started working for the tunnel and started skydiving as well.
What are your current goals in body flight?
