I arrived here with a fellow fun jumper on a day that was rather windy but we decided to drive up and see how it looked when we arrived. The lady behind the manifest counter was super nice and very helpful.

The issues began when we asked about the wind limits, cloud base etc. several male staffers laughed like it was the stupidest question they had ever heard. One of them even declared in a very know all tone "weather has no bearing on skydiving". We found the over all attitude and arrogance (except for the lady at manifest) combined with their view on jumping in high winds was enough to turn away from this DZ for good.

It must be amazing to work at this DZ and think you know everything and that no one else is as good as you!

NPCT....Door!


NPCT - Nationaal ParaCentrum Teuge Rated 4 by: eric164 on 2012-08-16

Pros: The peeps at this DZ are big time pros and cool from the top to bottom.
Cons: PITA to get there by public transpo and the weather, but hey it's Holland.

I have jumped this DZ many times and can say everyone from Simon (the Boss) to the packers and hospitality staff (de Wolk) totally rock. If you are a fun jumper trying to squeeze in a couple of drops after getting bored in Amsterdam....this is the place. The rental gear is top notch. NPCT has gear and next door is the Parachute Case....a full service rental house and rigger on duty pretty much all day. you can reserve a dorm room bunk very easy and cheap thru Werner. He runs De Wolk, the on site manager for food, drink and merriment. (tell him Eric from NY sent you and I get a free beer next time I am there!).
Like every DZ there are cliques.....and so what, screw it. The Dutch can be very friendly, so make friends and you'll find someone or three to turn points with.
The cultural make up of the DZ is diverse...Dutch, English, German and an occasional Yank. There will be many tongues spoken there, besides the Dutch speak better english then most native english speakers!
as far as jumper disciplines...everyone is represented...
you wanna freefly? got it. Belly? done. CRW? there are some world record holders on staff here! Static Line? your choice of canopy..square AND round! yes, rounds...Pathfinder Parachute Group run round canopy courses here several times a year...for those that dare.
once again, I have jumped NPCT many times, but I felt welcome the first time I was there. They aren't a USPA DZ but bring your card, proof of insurance and log book and you'll be on a load in no time.
Blue Skies.

CF Spectacle in Teuge rocks!

I visited Teuge several times for the famous CF Spectacle. Each time the visit was a pleasure.

There were friendly LOs and coaches, nice people, professional staff and pilots with a Grand Caravan and additional aircraft C206 or Caravan when nessessary.

I selected free camping, but i could have a bunkhouse style room too. Good food and drinks (Heineken) was available in the skydiver pub "De Wolk". Hey i even could wash my clothes before departure there.

OK, the weather in Netherlands sometimes suck, but these people are very good in spotting the next blue hole in the sky!

CU 2006 again!

Training


NPCT - Nationaal ParaCentrum Teuge Rated 4 by: russell71 on 2004-08-10

Pros: Large plane and landing area, very professional
Cons: This is a business first and a club second

I choose Teuge because it is about 20 minutes from where I live. I had visited other drop zones and chose Teuga because of the professional and safe feeling it gave me, and of course it's proximity!

I was not disapointed with my choice, the staff were very helpful and knowledgable.
