    4. Time: 10:15am (Arrive 45mins earlier to get group ready for jump. Sometimes due to weather holds, wait times will increase but usually it's in and out within 3 hours for this event).

    5a. Cost: For a limited time only - $199/person; pay directly to Westside. (Choice of aircraft and no of jumpers depends on whether more Westside crew is needed on board for your individual video option to capture your own jump.
