EL Paso TX Skydiving Recommendations Can't Post

Hi all!

I'm moving to El Paso TX from my current DZ of Kansas State University Parachute Club and am looking for a recommended DZ close by to El Paso. My searches aren't looking very good for a close drive. Anybody local have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Paul Cravey

Thanks much, tried the tab and locator and finally got in touch with the local DZ Was just looking for some more detailed local knowledge from someone who jumped there and made road trips to the best ones that were closest. Looks like for turbine time a trip to Eloy may be in order. Wink

You can't go wrong with Eloy. I kinda figured you'd go there if you were going to be on the NM & Tx state line. Have fun!

Don't come. It's full of Canadians, the beer is warm, and... and... and I'm sure something else! Wink

There's skydiving at Dona Ana County at Santa Teresa Airport. It's just west of El Paso maybe 15 miles. Some nice folks there. I use it as a fuel stop sometimes flying cross country. Have slept in their rigging loft too.

I've been jumping at Skydive El Paso (actually located at the Santa Theresa Airport right across the New Mexico border) for about 4 years. Great group of people and the owner is a great man as well. Only open on Saturday's. Two 182's with new engines and props. They are the fastest 182s I've been in. Tandem instructor just moved and are waiting for another to get here in a month or so. Pretty consistent groups of 6-10 up jumpers to make loads. Windy in the Spring, but almost never rains.
