New Drop Zone (Skydive Lakeside) Can't Post

FYI

Skydive Lakeside is pleased to announce our opening day at our drop zone. Come out this weekend 12/15/2012. For some fun jumps next to lake Okeechobee. Great views, fun times!
At this time we have a Cessna 206U model Aircraft.
We are located at 3800 State Road 7, in Pahokee Florida.
Check out our new website at www.skydivelakeside.com It is still under construction so please be patient, however, if you have comments or suggestions please let us know.

Thank you for your support.

Your web site only includes tandem pricing. Are licensed jumpers welcome?

I am not really connected to the DZ, I work at Clewiston on an "as needed" and "as I feel like it" basis.... But here are some answers that I know:

Quote:

Working on it.... The insurance requirement for a turbine from the County is insanely high. But if the business is there, then an aircraft will not be an issue.

Some relation, not going to go int detail but the DZ's will share some staff as needed. It is a very friendly relationship which is nice for DZ's so close to each other. Such a good relationship that Lakeside needed TI's and two Airglades TI's hopped into a private plane and flew over to help out in the middle of the day.

Big things are happening at Skydive Air Adventures and Skydive Lakeside is a part of that.

I believe they're running the yellow 206? Glad to hear they're getting the DZ going out there. I know the pilot of that plane was amped to get started there.
