Aerochute World Record Attempt 2011

Well we were planning to beat the World record flight this year which stood at 36 Aerochutes up at once.  All the usual planning and preparation went into the event.  Sending out invitations, arranging team leaders, grouping pilots by weight and experience etc.  There were 42 pilots booked in to fly so it looked as we could easily beat the record.  Now we just had to get good weather.  May is the usual time of the year when we plan this event as Autumn in Melbourne is mostly calm winds and sunny skies….damn this global warming, we are getting our wettest and windiest weather for for years!  We had planned for the 14th or 21st of May.  As the dates got closer the weather intensified and looked terrible.  We rang around for the 21st but were going to lose 8 or 9 people with other commitments.  So we crossed our fingers and hoped for the 14th.  On the Friday before when we made the calls to confirm everyone the wind was blowing and it was wet.  Not everyone was convinced that my weather guru had it right.  Even on the Saturday morning I had calls of pilots driving through rain to get to the Bermuda triangle of Melbourne- Werribee!
