An East Tennessee man accomplished three memorable milestones on Friday.
Tim Carlyle is a co-owner and instructor at Skydive East Tennessee in Dandridge.
The East Tennessee man celebrated his 50th birthday, set a new state record and raised money for the New Market Volunteer Fire Department.
Carlyle said he set a new state record for the most skydives in one day. In six hours, the instructor jumped out of a plane 50 times on Friday in celebration of his birthday.
Carlyle made his skydiving venture a fundraiser and raised more than $1,000 for the New Market Fire Department which is currently facing financial problems.
