After a 21-year hiatus from skydiving, I went to Baldwin to restart my avocation. Merriah Eakins and Mark Baur were invaluable in helping me get back in the air. The jumpers are welcoming and friendly.

This is one of the best dropzones I've jumped at.
The locals take you in like you are one of there family. No sky Gods.
The Otter is the cleanest one I've seen to date that hauls jumpers. Had no problems getting on a load.
The landing area is the largest and flattest grass landing area I've ever seen. The surrounding area has plenty of outs.
The facilities are top notch and kept very clean.
World class coaching available. I can go on and on, but if you are in the area I would highly recommend you drop by.

This is probably still one of my favorite DZs that I have jumped at while traveling with my rig.

A few years ago two colleagues and I (who all jump) were traveling for work in the Minneapolis area. We dropped in at STC on the weekend and again during the week to get a few jumps in. The people, facility, grass landing area and twin otter were all great. I still dream of getting some more work in that area so that I can go back to visit... I mean jump!

I Started jumping here in 1977 when it was called Baldwin Sport Parachute Center, after an absence from the sport(to raise my kids) the new owners and staff welcomed me back and made my reentry to the sport a smooth process. This is a graeat dropzone for students, families, experienced jumpers, and even us old fart has beens... You'll be impressed by the professional staff and warm welcome. I do jump other dropzones but always return here. It is just a great place to jump. 5 stars!

Had to redo my AFF there after taking a two year hiatus from jumping without finishing my A license. Had a blast. Camped out there for about a week and couldn't jump for the first couple of days due to weather, the staff took me in and we had a blast. Bonfires are great fun, everyone is real friendly, and they are all professional! The wind tends to get a little gusty, but they are constantly watching the weather and will get you up if they can safely. Thanks alot everyone! I'll be sending photos to you all soon.
