  • Maintain an organised schedule for the day in order to ensure optimal use of staff and aircraft.
  • Organising the aircraft manifest. This involves matching students with instructors and jumpers with available space in the aircraft. The goal is to keep the aircraft moving as efficiently as possible to maximise the number of jumps that can be made in a day.

  • Running errands, including taking in the bank deposit, picking up supplies, picking up people, etc.
  • Managing the various vending machines we have on site. Manifest must inform management if stock is running low and if more needs to be ordered.
  • Helping the other staff with the never-ending chore of keeping the place neat and tidy at all times.

We're looking for:

  • Able to work weekends throughout the summer season.
