Ian Robertson, known as 'Wobby', started parachuting in 1970 and quickly became a BPA Advanced Instructor and Examiner Rigger. He retired in 2008 after 38 years of applying his meticulous approach to teaching students, maintaining par achute equipment and improving safety. His designs, ideas and attitude to rigging, especially student parachute equipment, hugely increased reliability, comfort and confidence. For over 25 years Wobby helped the BPA and its Riggers' Committee to progress standards of workmanship and safety by developing the systems used to train all riggers today.
