Our facility is located on our privately owned 47 acre tract adjoining the Clinton Regional Airport just outside of Clinton, Missouri. The view in free fall and under canopy is second to none anywhere within 400 miles as we are located right next to Truman Reservoir. Come find out why we are quickly becoming the best drop zone in Missouri.

From the moment you arrive, you are treated as family. The people are what make this dropzone awesome. Parking is about 400 feet from the main facility, but a golf cart is available for fun jumpers to go to/from the car with your equipment. Fun jumper packing area is separate from the main building, and is carpeted, has walls on three sides to eliminate most of the wind, while allowing a gentle breeze to keep you cool. On-site restaurant is available for breakfast, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, milk shakes, etc. Manifest can be accessed either through the "tunnel", or in the air conditioned lobby. Swoop pond is really nice, also with the ability to kayak or fish. On-site free camping is available along the tree line, along with rental RV sites including water, sewer, and electric hookups (50/30/15 amp!). Large heated/air conditioned bunkhouse is available for a small fee. Huge bonfire area next to the pond is awesome for after jump nights under the stars! Aircraft are meticulously maintained, and include a 2000 model year turboprop Caravan to get to full altitude in just minutes, as well as a Cessna 182 for hop and pops, and days when there are light loads. A limousine-style golf cart (seats 12) sees a lot of action picking up jumpers in the student, A, and B license area, eliminating those long walks back to the packing area. All in a very beautiful and peaceful setting, you need to check out this dropzone. There is a mix of student jumpers, new jumpers, and experienced jumpers here, and you always feel at home at this dropzone. Highly recommended!
