Las Vegas area schools Can't Post

Hello everyone! I went on my first tandem a week ago at Sin City skydiving.. Was a lot of fun. I nearly threw up under canopy, and was gagging as soon as we hit ground.. But I'm hoping that wont happen again.. I'm going to do another tandem just to be sure. When I do decide to take the A.F.F class I want to be sure that wont happen again.

But basically I'm wondering if anyone has gone to Sin city skydiving, and can recommend there A.F.F class.
Mesquite also has a skydiving school, its only a couple hours away and seem like a bigger place. but ive never been there..

Being on the passenger side is special. I've got over 700 jumps and over 50 tandems and the only time I've felt nauseous was when I was riding a tandem as a passenger few months ago.

The fact that you felt sick under canopy on tandem may not mean anything for personal jumping.

Mesquite, shouldn't be a couple hours away. Its located 70 miles N of the stratosphere. I guess if you live on the south end of the valley, it would be a couple...

Mesquite is the place you will end up jumping as a licensed jumper. I would suggest you give them a call and make the choice from there.

Search for Mesquite, Las Vegas, Sin City skydiving or you can check out the reviews on DZ.com the results will speak for them selves.

Either way, Good luck. Maybe I'll see you at a boogie in Mesquite.

I moved to colorado but I still consider them my Home DZ.

Are you going simply for fun? Or is it an instructed course in the wind tunnel?

Alright good! It's much better to do tunnel time with an instructor than to do tunnel time by yourself as a first time "commercial" customer if you understand what I mean!

Good luck!

Did my AFF at Sin City as well as several of my friends. All had a good time and we still jump regularly. Where I live Sin City is a bit closer than mesquite so I go to Sin City more often. Regardless of which you pick you will still have lots of fun.
