Kailun Lin - The only Chinese female Tandem skydive instructor in New Zealand.
Kailun, originally from the Fujian province in China, always wanted a career in skydiving. In July 2015 she moved to New Zealand to join the NZ Skydiving School to do her Diploma in Commercial Skydiving in Auckland.
She completed her work experience placement at Skydive Auckland and then became a full time employee working as a Parachute Packer, Camera Flyer and a Chinese Ambassador, speaking Mandarin to the many Chinese tandem customers who visit Skydive Auckland. In June 2019, Kailun did her tandem rating at age 26.
Now aged 27, she says “I love taking people for their first ever skydiving experience. They find it scary and exciting and it's extremely rewarding”.
When Kailun is not jumping out of planes, she loves going to the gym, the beach and surfing!
