As already said in another review, if you manage to get the high altitude loads, very nice place to get a couple of good jumps in. Lots of tandems so loads go up every 20 minutes, apparently they are getting a new aircraft in October 2016 which would be great as they seem to be busy enough to fill it. Weather holds can happen in between June and December.

As a beginner I felt really welcomed from the beginning and even got invited to jump with other more experience fun jumpers which for my level of experience was just ideal.

They have a fairly good shop to buy gear, they stock helmets, suits,altos, googles and even some new and second hand rigs.

It would be great if they start offering deals for blocks of tickets, like most of the big DZ's, specially for jumpers like me,that want to become regular customers and get lots of jumps in.

In my opinion, with the great location, weather, atmosphere and amount of tourists, and mostly for being the only real drop zone in the area, this place will grow and become a world class drop zone very soon.

It's difficult for me to write a review due to my unique situation. I was trying to get licensed but not actually through TSA but with independent instructors while using this DZ. The TSA instructors that I did meet there were very cool but there was some problem with the DZ owner and my independent instructors that caused me to have to cancel after 2 jumps. It left me feeling sour as I left the place. I really like my independent instructors a lot and was appreciative of the DZ for accommodating us at first. I saw a lot of tourist tandems and the customers seemed pretty happy. The AFF students that I saw appeared to be doing a lot of ground practice alone while instructors were jumping tourists. But I wasn't one of them and didn't talk to them much so I cant give a fair review. I really don't know what else to say other than I was really upset when the owner's only offer was for me to join the DZ's AFF my program was canceled. I really wanted to finish with the instructors that I sought out for 1 on 1 independent instruction. If anyone is on vacation in Thailand I would say go for a tandem jump. If you're a fun jumper and in Thailand then just do it, because there's nowhere else to go. If you want to be a student... well I'm just going to continue the endeavor when I get back to the United States. Overall I decided to recommend because I can only non-recommend for students, however I wasn't officially one of their students so my perception is skewed. I want to be fair but tell my story. By the way, there is a nice pro shop there if you need gear, rigging services or clothing.

I was there at 2015/02/02 only for one day. Aircraft arrived at noon, so I had to wait two hours. But there is a nice coffee shop.

After checking my documents and a briefing on the landing area, I could buy a ticket (incl. rent for rig) and was manifested for the next free load.

There are three time slots for 13.000 ft: 11-12, 13-14 and 15-16. Other times are 9.000 ft.

I did 3 jumps, including the sunset load. After my last landing, I get a can of cold LEO beer, nice gesture.

I you know about the time slots, I can recommend this drop zone without any limitations.

Sorry for my bad english... :-)

Fairly easily accessed DZ, but not many options in Asia.

People have complained about tandems and sure they do as many tandems as they can... that is what is going to pay for the place to stay open. I get that. They can take 8 jumpers, that mean 2 tandems and video, which means to fun jumpers can get on every load, minimum. But you have to speak up! The atmosphere was comfortable and was very inclusive from the beginning. I think where the complainers go wrong is they are not proactive at the DZ, they are not ready for loads and do not speak up to get on the board... they want everything to be done for them. All the instructors know what's going on and are super experienced, Jonny, Troy and Slava are good guys, but huge respect for Jonny Guru, the place wouldn't be what it is if he wasn't there.
