Biography

4-way Sequential Canopy Formation team K4 began in 2012 as an offshoot from the top two Aussie 2-way Sequential CF teams for a bit of fun. Team members are: Craig ‘Crash’ Bennett, Jules McConnel, Richie Dronow, Scott ‘Splitty’ Brown and Steve ‘Spot’ Tonson. Since 2016 they have gotten more ‘serious’, moving to NZ Aerosports Matrix2 canopies and ramping up the number of training jumps they do (from 30 a year to 150 a year).

Team goals:
Goal #1 – survive
Goal #2 – stay on our mains,
Goal #3 – break records!
