Great skydiving spot for beginners and advanced skydivers.
Operates two Pilatus, so even in busy week-ends, you don't wait long.
Of note: there is a wind tunnel on site, a bit small (will take two), but very convenient for an AFF student who needs some extra coaching. Also freeflyers can practice in parallel to actual jumping.
The packing area is brand new and spacious.
The instructor team is very professional and friendly, will cater to any needs, from beginner to intermediate to advanced.
Food is terrific, operated by a very efficient couple, at very decent rates. Basically, you don't need to go shopping (and in any case, it would be some distance).
Housing is a bit old and pretty cramped quarters, possibly allowing for 20-30, 3-4 per room. But bedding is new and tidy. Better bring your own sleeping bag.
Showers, more generally, the sanitation area are decent and functional.
