Post #1 of 5
I am taking an assignment in Milan, Italy for about 6 months this year, starting in early March. I would love to stay current over there and I'm curious as to which DZ's I should visit or even better, frequent.
The USPA website lists 5 or 6 DZs in Italy. Body Fly University is just east of Reggio Emilia (2 hrs. from Milan):
Central Italy has drop zones all over the place. When I was there a few years ago, I found DZs in Pontecagnano (s. of Salerno), 2 overlooking the Adriatic (Fano and Fermo) and a little one in the Republic of San Marino.
Hey! I am a Captain stationed in Germany. Naples has a great dropzone, but if I were you, I would highly suggest flying over to Barcelona, and then taking the train or renting a car and go up to skydive Empuriabrava, Spain. It is a canal city on the beach, with two twin otters, a porter, and a wind tunnel. It is a skydive oasis, and trust me, you'll enjoy the clubs, bars, and the great coaches there. Ryan air flies to Girona, Spain, which is about $133.00 from Germany and 25 minutes from Empuriabrava.
