Can't say enough about how great everyone at MPC is. Extremely welcoming, friendly, great weather and a ton of fun to jump with everyone out there. If you are in Central California, I suggest you stop by on a weekend.

I did my first AFF skydive from Madera and I am very impressed. I had a great time and will be returning for further training. The staff was great and very welcoming. After all the ground training there was no doubt in my mind about what I would be doing and how to do it. It was a very personal experience where you don't just feel like a number. Can't wait to go back.

Since I'm a sticker freak, I was disappointed they had none, nor any patches or t-shirts. Basic no-frills DZ with a great vibe. Everyone we met was very nice and helpful. The 182 was ok by me and the pilot is great. Landing area is right next to the hanger with plenty of alternative outs. I'm surprised more people don't jump here, being so close to Fresno. Well that ok, I guess, since they only have the one plane. BSBD! C-ya!

Madera is a good small Dz. It has friendly staff and is welcome to everyone. The dropzone has a slow pace that is refreshing to some of the bigger dz's. The only problem is that they only have one plane and it is a cesna 182. Overall I think madera is a great place to jump.
