Allow me a moment to dote on my wife.  It is with great pleasure, and my honor, to present the USPAs newest AFF Instructor OFFICIALLY!  The United States Parachute Association Board of Directors met this past weekend and Penny was on the docket. After much discussion it is my understanding that they voted to change rules that have been put in place for decades to allow Penny to pave the way to become the countrys first AFF-I (Restricted) rating holder.Due to a past injury, Penny is no longer able to skydive without accepting a lot more risk than the average person. Thus, she can no long accumulate jump numbers or freefall time. Having to quit skydiving when she did, she came up short for meeting the requirements of being a full fledged Accelerated Free Fall Instructor which has been one of her goals since she first took the USPA Coach Course a decade ago. Last year, about this time, she attended Xcelskydivings AFF Course as a continuing education of sorts. I suppose thats when Michael Wadkins came up with the idea.  Penny excelled at the course and from that moment Mr. Wadkins decided to see if there wasnt something to be done to allow Penny to continue her love of teaching and take it to that next level.Through the efforts of USPA Regional Director and Xcelskydivings Michael Wadkins and USPA Regional Director Gary Peek, together they spearheaded a campaign to make positive change in the USPA. If it hadnt have been for either one of them Penny might never have realized her dream of becoming one of the elite and holding the rating of AFF-I.The Board met, and voted, and decided that rather than just waiver Penny to allow her to keep her Coach rating and subsequently continue teaching First Jump Courses, she was to be awarded the rating of AFF-I and be allowed to teach not only the FJC but all method specific lessons attributed to Accelerated Free Fall.Penny is the FIRST AFF-I (Restricted) rating holder in the country thus paving the way for other individuals whom show extraordinary teaching abilities but may not be able to perform the actual skydives themselves.Thank you Michael Wadkins for spearheading this campaign. Thank you Gary Peek for your support in this endeavor and helping make Pennys dream a reality. Without either of you advocating on her behalf she may never have been given the chance she so richly deserved.Unfortunately, now were just going to have to live with her for the next several weeks until the newness wears off and probably have to help her fit her head through some doorways.  ;)Congratulations Penny!  Im SO VERY PROUD of you and once again you have shown me that there isnt anything you cant achieve once you put your mind to it! You are TRULY AMAZING!
