Raleigh NC and Nashville TN - where to jump Can't Post

Hello All,

I will be over from the UK in Raleigh NC and Nashville TN for a day each and plan to do some fun jumping. I will have a car, rig and don't mind travelling.

Best places to visit for a few jumps?

Thanks Smile

What days, weekends I would recommend West Tennessee Skydiving. Good group of fun jumpers, fast plane with 0g's on every load.

Triangle Skydiving Center is right outside of Raleigh and will be having a boogie over Thanksgiving weekend.

It is a nice dropzone and they have a good crowd for the Boogie (lots of Canadians). The Canadians all think it is warm. Some years it is pretty nice. Some years it gets a little cold.

Tennessee Skydiving Center in Tullahoma is the closest to Nashville, about 55 mins from Downtown Nashville,
http://Skydivetullahoma.com

If you already are, or care to drive about 3 hours towards Memphis, West Tennessee Skydiving is hands down, your best choice since they do have the fastest plane and other amenities, as BKS60 described, http://skydivekingair.com

Your other choice would be 2 hours down I-65, Skydive Alabama, in Cullman, Alabama, They have a Caravan, and it's a great DZ, with a brand new facility with all the creature comforts! They are further than Tullahoma, closer than West Tennessee, but all three offer great skydives and a great atmosphere! Skydive Alabama's site is http://skydivealabama.com

Another great DZ that you may consider if you are driving between Raleigh and Nashville, is Skydive East Tennessee! They are located right off the Gatlinburg/Sevierville exit, near Knoxville. Their website is http://skydiveet.com


Hope that helps!

It's a little farther than the others, ~4 hours, but Skydive The Farm is a great DZ in western Georgia and totally worth the drive.

Triangle SC in Louisburg, 45 mins North of Raleigh.

Nice Twin Otter DZ with lots of fun jumpers. Only open at weekends this time of year. They have a boogie thanksgiving week though.

Come on down to Raeford NC!! The DZ is great, very friendly folks. If you do, hit up the bar and get some wings, some of the best wings I have ever had.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! It's a sLyride DZ!!! If they were a good and reputable DZ, myself and/or others would have referred that one!
