Jumping at Deland Can't Post

I have to pick up a helicopter in Orlando, and am thinking about making a stop on the way back and making a couple of jumps at Deland.
What can anyone tell me about jumping there?
Thank you in advance,
Kandace
P.S. "B" license 119 jumps. 7 this year after a very long layoff.

Deland is open 7 days a week so you shouldn't have any problems getting some jumps in there. I think Flight-1 is having a canopy course there this coming weekend if you need to brush up on your canopy piloting skills.

I've only got 50 something jumps but I'll jump w/ you if you don't want to go solo. I got laid off of work recently so have a lot of free time on my hands. lol

DeLand is not my 'Home' DZ, but I do try to get down there once a month to jump. As long as your not a super shy or a timid person, you'll be fine. The girls in Manifest are awesome and will answer any questions. Even during weekdays you will see all skill levels from teams, to AFF. They have 2 landing areas so plenty of space even when the load is full. Hope this helps some! Smile

Just let the staff know in Manifest that you are looking for someone to jump with, and they might be able to hook you up. There's a full service restaurant and bar, so plan on hanging out too!

Deland is awesome! You should have no issues finding someone to jump with!

Have fun!

But she wont be likely to get to jump without everyone saying "So, you have a helicopter here?"

It is an R44 that needs to get home to WI.
Unfortunately it is not mine, so no jumpy jumpy :-(
Mention helicopter and skydivers eyes light up :-)

Thanks for the Deland info.

It's my home DZ as well, and I'm a SkydiveU coach, so if you need someone to jump with, keep an eye out for the guy with the red/black jumpsuit, jumping a Mirage, with a sticker-covered Bonehead helmet - I'll be around all day long. -Steve

Youl'll know the exact Mirage because the reserve cover flap has a slight bend to it...Frown

Send me the bill...

I will say: Hovergirl, you can't go wrong looking him up, he has a tenacity and persistance that will serve you well, plus he's a great guy that knows everyone and the DZ like the back of his hand!!!

I was gonna try this afternoon but I heard the wind will be worse. I'm hoping to get out there early tomorrow morning and atleast get my feet off the ground once before the wind starts up again!

Sad Frown I did not get to jump while in Deland. On
Saturday it was very windy! Then we flew in on Sunday morning in the helicopter and the ceiling was 2500ft and the temp was 38
So I bought a t-shirt and headed back to Wisconsin.
On the upside I now have a jump credit at Deland (have to go back now)Wink! and I spent 8 minutes in the tunnel in Orlando.
The flight back in the heli was awesome and we made it in a day.
Met some really nice people and got to put faces to names.
Good trip.
