Skydive Abel Tasman presents a New Zealand First!

7 February 2013

Skydive Abel Tasman presents a New Zealand First!

A special event will be taking place over the skies of Abel Tasman this coming Saturday, 9th February at approximately 1:30pm! For the first time in New Zealand history, a couple; Jan Schslesner and Susann Lasch, from Germany will tie the knot at 16,500 feet. Jan and Susann, avid skydivers, have chosen to exchange vows before taking the leap, literally, together.

From the dropzone the couple, along with their celebrant and his Tandem Master, will fly over the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park to the altitude of 16,500 feet. A camera man will be along to record every step of their unique wedding. After exchanging vows they will leap out of the aircraft with the camera man followed by their celebrant. They will freefall for approximately 65 seconds whilst enjoying their special moment in paradise. Upon landing, bubbles and wedding cake will be waiting for all to celebrate this memorable and truly one of a kind union.

This will certainly be a special occasion that will never be forgotten.

Witness this special occasion - all media welcome from noon at SkyDive Abel Tasman, Hangar 16, Motueka.
