Skydive Kentucky (Elizabethtown)?
This is the nearest DZ to where I live in Kentucky. I stopped by there about a year ago and checked the place out, but have never actually jumped from there.
Any fun jumpers have experience there? I'm going to have to repeat all of my training due to a five year gap since the last time I jumped, and was wondering what the community at large had to offer on this DZ.

I spent a couple of days there last year. The DZO, Jim Moore, is a great guy, and they have a small but loyal group of fun jumpers, enough to keep loads running at a steady pace. I don't enjoy jumping out of a Cessna as much as a turbine, so I haven't gone back, but if I lived closer (I'm 6 hours away, and my DZ has a PAC 750) I definitely would, just for the people and the atmosphere there. It's like a family that welcomes you right away and you always have friendly, helpful people to jump with. The scenery is pretty beautiful from the air. Good landing area, plenty of outs, nice facilities to hang out at between jumps. I recommend it without question!
