This drop zone has been amazing since the first time I went. I did my tandems through AFF at skydive35. The staff is great. They have a strong focus on safety and continuing education. Sam was a insanely knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable during AFF. After AFF, the DZ has many coaches to help you further lay down good habits as you work towards your A license and even after. This place has a good consistent group of fun jumpers every week that are very friendly and eager to help as well. Can't say enough about the great experience I have had at Skydive35 over this past year. I'm honored to call this place my home DZ.

Ive been to Chicago, Dallas, Perris, Elsinore, Eloy, etc. And somehow this is the best DZ Ive been to. Upon arrival I was treated as if I was one of the regulars. They made sure I had someone to jump with, and brought me into the conversations while waiting.

This is a tandem focused place, but you can tell a lot from how a DZ treats it's tandems. All of the tandems are treated with respect and with a focus to have them as students and not on a roller coaster ride.

While there are not many people to jump with (while I was there), I still managed to not do a single solo while I was there and I actually ended up doing a little bit of coaching and organizing while I was there even though I was just a visitor.

They take the King Air to 17.5K every other load or so for an extra couple of bucks and it gets there super fast. Landing area is massive but the X is right in fron the the packing area so no walking or catching a ride back to manifest.

If you are in the DFW area or Central Texas, give this place a shot!

These guys are great. I walked in with my rig for the first time, was manifested within 10 minutes, and then got pulled onto the staff fun jump load right after.

The hangar is cozy and clean, the King Air is crazy fast, very comfortable, and it's got speakers, and everyone's very friendly. My daughter ran out into the peas after I landed and no one yelled at her for going past the cones. Score!

I was in DFW for a long weekend and spent two days at Skydive 35. These guys are awesome! Ivan, the DZO really cares about his DZ and it shows in everything from the beautiful carpeted packing hangar to the immaculate (fast) E-90. The local jumpers were friendly and the available area to land is HUGE! I will be back to Skydive 35 as soon as possible - highly recommend if you're in the DFW area.

There is a reason this place is cheaper than everywhere else! HORRIBLE customer service, false advertisment, and complete disorganization. I have never disliked a place so much! We arrived at 9:30, and we were not even talked to for an hour other than to take our money of course. We got trained by an awesome instructor, Sam, but then ignored again for another hour. This was not a weather delay. It was a delay due to them having to "febreeze the airplane". It was not the nice plane on their website. A completely different plane that takes double the time to reach the jump height. Then, we are finally told that we can jump at 3 after everyone that came before us. When we asked why, our reply was, "That's what's on the monitor, and I haven't touched it". And that people that pay for video/pictures have priority. I would have bought them if I would have known that. We were told if we decided to leave because we don't not want to wait 6 hours that we will lose our $140 deposit. Just complete crap. They advertise 3 hours max! Don't waste your time driving here and jumping! Pay a little more for excellent service somewhere else.
