This DZ is fun. Located just outside of Wichita, KS. The landing area is in front of a busy restaurant that has a huge out door patio. It's like jumping a demo every jump. There is also mid week jumping. If they have the skydivers they will run the plane. I love that. For experience jumpers I think there is a lic. Requirement of B +100jumps but don't take my word! Call and ask them!
