BEWARE of this place. They are only interested in collecting your money and will give no refunds. We got there on July 22, 2012 after making a 12pm reservation for 4 people several weeks earlier. The weather was just starting to clear and they gave COMPLETELY misleading information as to the wait times. 3 hours in they said that it was because of lack of tandem instructors. An hour later they said it would be another 4-5 hrs before we jumped. At this point we asked for our money back and the owner refused. I COMPLETELY understand the weather is a factor and that you are short of instructors. But there is NO LEGITIMATE reason not to be upfront and flat out misleading. This is by far one of the most unprofessional establishments I have EVER seen!

My girlfriend and I visited Chambersburg Skydiving Center just last week after spending a day/night in nearby Gettysburg. Right away it was apparent what a cool and layed back atmosphere it was at the dropzone. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful in explaining the ins and outs of the DZ/Landing area and the funjumpers there were equally welcoming. Only managed to get in a few jumps that day because of the long trip back to NY but despite it being a bit hazy it was nice to see the Appalachian Mountains and surrounding historical areas from FULL ALTITUDE. The only bummer of the day was not having been able to stay longer. My girlfriend who is not a skydiver was made to feel totally at home as again the folks there are downright awesome. If you're visiting historical Gettysburg bring your rig with you and take the 35 min. or so drive afterwards to this DZ. Even if you're not visiting Gettysburg and just happen to be in the area I highly recommend visiting the DZ. It was a great capper to a memorable weekend.

I went with a couple of experienced jumper friends to see a different DZ. We were welcomed and invited to participate in several large RW jumps, with varying degrees of success, but we had a great time. I would definitely recommend Chambersburg for fun jumpers to jump. Everyone was very welcoming and it was a low key fun place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

It is a nice DZ but the prices to get to altitude are a little steep. The packing area is a little cramped but is indoors. Most of the people are pleasant, especially Jamie and Grant. You guys rock!!

My visist to Chambersburg was great. JR and his crew really made the time spent there worth it. Although the weather was bad and there was only one load, the staff made it worth sticking around.

I showed up early and they immediately welcomed me in. Even though it was apparent that JR was busy, he made time to look over my gear, check my logbook and after a quick orientation I was ready to go. Having both a King Air and C-182, they were flexible and put me and three other experienced jumpers on a load. Those that called Chambersburg home really brought me in and made me feel welcomed.

The hanger was extremely organized and gave an awesome first impression. The mats were extremely clean and all the gear was stowed. Overall the facilities were great.

The attitude was amazing. JR, Rocky, Paul, Grant and everyone else were extremely friendly. From an outsider point of view, Grant (AFF instructor) was extremely detailed with the first jump course going and really showed a high level of professionalism.

Bottom Line: I will go back!!! This small DZ was ran well and had their arms wide open. I highly recommend this place. If you are planning to jump in PA, this is the place to go.
