Question for Z-Hills Jumpers Can't Post

We (just two of us) were thinking of going to Z-Hills at the end of October for a week to 10 days or so.

Can any Z-Hills jumpers (never been there before) tell me if the DZ is usually busy enough mid week to keep the aircraft in the air, i.e are we likely to be able to jump all day throughout the week. Thinking of arriving on a Friday (probably October 26th).

Thanks in advance. Marcus

at that time of the year yes most likely. a lot of foreigners come in and Zhills flies every day during the winter (or Florida's version of it Tongue). If it does slow down there's plenty of fun stuff to do in Tampa too. Smile

IIRC I think the winter hours (7 days a week) start on 1 Nov. Might want to give 'em a ring to make sure...

Book your tickets and come to FL, but rent a car too! If you have a car, you can travel around to more than one dz all within a few hours of each other.

If Zhills is closed during the week, drive on up to DeLand and jump there. You can also schedule tours of places like UPT, PD, and Mirage. Also check out the jumping hours at Palatka, Lake Wales and Skydive Sebastian and make sure you book some tunnel time!

Bring some costumes too, there are Halloween Boogies at Sebastian, Zhills and Palatka. Have fun! Smile
