I dropped by Palatka a while back for the Falling Gators Collegiate boogie. If you are arriving at this DZ after dark, call before hand and let them know you're coming! There is a gate at the airport that closes after dark.

Had an awesome weekend hanging out with a bunch of the UF Falling Gators and Art, the DZO is one of the most down to earth people I've met. It's nice to see a DZO actively involved in all aspects of his DZ. During the weekend I saw him rig, pack when needed and take tandems.

They had the Skyvan from Deland for the weekend, so I didn't get a chance to jump the Caravan, but from takeoff to exit it seemed pretty fast from the ground. The main landing area is somewhat tight for newer jumpers, but they do have a very large open alternate landing area with pickup.

Overall an awesome experience and will definitely be back to this DZ whenever I am in FL.
