About our instructor. I made my first BASE jump in 1993, the feeling I got was insanity when I jumped and serenity when the parachute opened .My most memorable jumps are being a part of an expedition to Angel Falls in Venezuela in the year 2000 organized by AERIAL FOCUS and was the second person in the world to fly a wing suit off it,14 jumps into Sotano De Las Golondrinas in Mexico organized by AERIAL EXTREME, wing suit boogie in Norway also
organized by AERIAL EXTREME, wingsuit jumps into the Grand Canyon organized by APEX BASE, the Royal Bank downtown Vancouver, being a part of these expeditions with these high caliber companies and the many BASE jumpers that I have learnt from in the last 28 years completing 955 BASE jumps
has given me the knowledge and confidence to pass onto others. Steve”Smiley”Janz CANBASEaprenderás a cómo cambiar la altura de tu vuelo con movimientos del cuerpo y además, entrará junto a ti para estar al pendiente de que mantengas la posición correcta de tu cuerpo, así como brazos y piernas.
¡Podrás volar sólo! no estarás atado al instructor mientras él controla todos los movimientos.

What our instructor think about the bridge: MezcalaMezcala bridge is a great place to do your first BASE jump, the exit point is very comfortable and is easy to access, it is 160 vertical meters from the road deck to the bottom, you have 360degrees of clear space after opening , the landing area is big, the wind is generally quite calm, the weather is hot, after landing it is a short easy walk to the pick up vehicle then a 15 min drive back to the top, the weather is pretty much guaranteed to be nice all year.
