most recent Covert
Ops Counter Terror Adventure near Miami received rave
reviews from all participants, including our lone female
operative. (She did complain there wasn't enough yelling,
but she did it with a smiley face.)
When asked to sum up her experience, Sue wrote: "Ready
to take care of terrorists....NOT! But aware of my surroundings
and my shooting skills taken up a notch."
Mark had so many great things to say about Covert Ops, we only
have room to print a portion of his kind words:
"The covert ops training
was stupendous and outstanding in every way. I cannot give
you enough accolades for Garret
and his wonderful support in Jarred and Moshe. Garret is
a superb, brilliant, and highly intelligent, and patient
instructor. I cannot imagine a better teacher anywhere in
the world. So good that I will be going back for further
instruction and I will sign up for any other courses provided.
I will never train with anyone else....I strongly recommend
this adventure to anyone who wants to grow, be challenged,
and leave with superior skills and confidence. This is a
profound life experience – it changed my life
for the better. I cannot wait to go back.
Our next four-day Covert Ops Counter
Terror Adventures are set for August 9th - 12th and
December 6th-9th. For complete details, visit our website

our friends at the base will be seeing him again soon.
Here's one of our favorite Colin-isms:
"I would wash, vacuum and clean every MiG
for two years for a 45 minute flight, if Oleg is agreeable
to that. It is, as you say, very addictive, maybe not for
everyone but certainly for me."
We'll tell you more about Colin's
MiG flights and the way he's used his flights to raise

Here's a bit of what Chris, one of our recent HALO skydivers,
had to say about his high-altitude skydive:
"Hello Greg. I had an awesome time. Although
the jump initially didn't feel any more remarkable
than a regular jump from
14K, the similarities quickly ended. The thin
air (little resistance) followed by the discernible
levels of thermals, were definitely a wow factor,
but the biggest impression was the endless free fall.
I thought I was falling forever, and the ground wasn't
getting any closer, this was truly a remarkable experience.
I thought I was going to face extreme cold and extreme
speed, but both were negligible. With the ambient
temperature at -41F coupled with 200+ MPH descend,
one would expect a very chilling experience, but this
was not the case, it was a very comfortable ride.
...I was extremely overwhelmed by the experience
and would recommend this to jumpers of any level,
even first time jumpers..."
