"I had become very close with Rita, David, and their kids. Once i started running it, the drop zone became the Green County Skydiving Center. In many ways, it was still a family business, and the Laynes were my family. David became the chief instructor, Rita ran the office, Carolina helped Rita every way she could. And James, well, James went crazy about skydiving."
This was Dan BC writing in Chapter 13 of his book "Above All Else" that the NSL News introduced on 29 April 2011.
His two years younger sister Caroline Layne made her first jump when she was 13 years old. It was also Dan BC who took her to the skies for the first time at the Green County Skydiving Center. She does not come back later in Dan BC's book, even though they are still very close friends. However, she continued with skydiving for several years after her brother lost his life in the 1992 plane crash.
Eventually, her life changed and she left skydiving behind for a while.

She is the Point for DeLand Slide (Randy Cutlip, Steve Hubbard, player coach Gilles Dutrisac) who just launched the team project for the 2013 season. The NSL News reported the challenging weather conditions for the FSL season opener earlier. The jump plane in DeLand took off one single time on the meet weekend, and Caroline Layne with her new team was on board for the first competition round of the year.
She was in the Center Outside position for this jump. The first training camp with player coach Gilles Dutrisac in the new lineup and with new slots is coming up this weekend. Caroline Layne is ready to follow the same passion that her brother shared before he was stopped abruptly in 1992.
