On August 24, Circle W Restorations hosted the second annual Operation Wings & Wheels event at the Circle W Airfield north of East Berlin, Pennsylvania. The event included skydiving demos; custom aircraft, car and motorcycle competitions; vendors; airplane rides; a silent auction; and live music. The fundraiser benefitted Roots for Boots, an Oxford, Pennsylvania, nonprofit organization that helps meet the needs of military members and their families. U.S. Army veteran and skydiver Cliff Weaver, owner of Circle W Restorations and Airfield, provided the venue, as well as the skydiving aircraft. Tandem instructor Bill Hanrahan donated three tandem skydives at nearby Chambersburg Skydiving Center for the auction and also performed a jump with a 600-square-foot flag for the opening ceremony. Joe Callen performed several other flag jumps throughout the day. In addition, skydivers from Maytown Sport Parachute Club and Chambersburg Skydiving Center participated in the skydiving shows throughout the event, which raised more than $30,000 for Roots for Boots.

On October 23, Advanced Aerospace Designs issued reminders of approaching deadlines for compliance with its last two service bulletins.
PIA released Service Bulletin PSB-10092020 affecting after-market tandem main risers constructed with obsolete RW2 rings. All sport tandem main risers produced with RW2 rings, or equivalent sized rings, are affected regardless of the hardware manufacturer, the date of manufacture, the material type or the forging process used. This PSB does not affect "solo" main risers that use RW2 rings. Compliance is MANDATORY – REPLACE BEFORE THE NEXT JUMP.
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Uninsured United Parachute Technologies, LLC (UPT) parachutes. This AD results from reserve pin covers (RPCs) catching on the parachute container flaps and preventing the reserve parachute from deploying. This AD requires modifying the RPC before the next parachute jump and replacing the RPC at the next reserve parachute packing. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
It’s no secret that more and more people are turning to giving gifts of experiences instead of material things.
Strong Enterprises issued Service Bulletin #35 mandating inspection of the 3-ring attachment on tandem drogues manufactured between June 22, 2020, and February 2, 2021 whose last three digits of the serial numbers between 625 and 714. Status is MANDATORY. Compliance is IMMEDIATE – before the next jump.
