Cleveland Parachute Center Can't Post

Is Cleveland Parachute Center still open? The DZ Finder had the wrong website and when i did find the new website the dates are from 2008. I will be traveling to Oho this summer for family and was hoping to get a few jumps in.

Not for awhile.

There are two other choices in the area. Aerohio is down just west of Akron. It's about 40 min from downtown Cleveland, and 20 min from downtown Akron. Open every weekend and 'somtimes' during the week, call ahead for weekday hours.

Canton Airsports is the other. It's about 1 hour 15 min from Cleveland, and (I guess) about 45 min from Akron. Pretty much the same deal as Aerohio, open weekends with some weekdays, depending on what's going on. Call before you come out during the week.

I jump at both, but spend more time at Aero. It's way closer to my house and I'm on the video staff. We run a Caravan, and it's generally a fun and safe DZ.

Canton is also a fun and safe DZ, I shoot out there for weekday jumps and a change of pace. The rumor is they'll have a Super Otter for next season, but that might still be a 'rumor'. They also bring in a Skyvan a couple times per year. Again, call ahead to confirm that they have a plane and they'll be jumping before making the dirve out there.

Sad really. Once great DZ now closed due to the actions of a fucked up few.

Thanks for the info! I will be staying in Chadron so Akron is a little closer. Hopefully I can sneak away for some jumps!
