good jumpzone in US with cheap package for 100 jumps? (and loads during week) Can't Post

just wondering if I were to focus on getting a hundred or so jumps up in one hit (take time off) where would be the best (or a good place) to go in the US to get:

- cheapest package for 100 jumps (main requirement)

I guess it would be nice at the same time that aspects of the DZ included:

- 13500' or great jumping
- busy enough to have loads going up during the week
- ideally larger planes than a Cessna 182 to jump from (but else the 182 is ok if necessary)
- doesn't have a history of getting easily weathered out


I'm having a look at http://www.jumpticketprices.com/ at the moment, which is good, but it doesn't really cover off some of the things I noted above, so thought someone who jumps a lot around the US might have some good tips.


tks

What that guy said. I just moved to Asia from the States and tired of just doing H&P's from a 172 that costs $49.

I'm going to Lodi hoping to do 100 jumps in 2ish weeks leaving in 2 days. $1,300 for 100 jumps or $650 for 50 jumps can't beat that. They've also got 3 or 4 different planes

15ish loads during the weekdays and around 40ish on the weekends from what I've been told.

Yes, Lodi is cheap.

If I were you, I'd look into it's aircraft safety records with the FAA, then make an informed decision.

Was that for me or the OP? Either way I agree with your statement informed decisions are always better. I knew about the "things" before I planned my trip and well aware of the situation.
I still reckon that it's better than the plane I've been jumping out of here in asia lol

Two potentially deadly situations, one is cheaper, so it is OK?

Odd.

I wouldn't go that way, but eh, money isn't my reasoning.

I jump there and your chances of killing yourself are way higher than dieing in an ac accident.


Haven't seen an AC fall outta the sky yet (unlike some OTHER places)
