I actually drive 360 miles round trip to specifically go to this drop zone. Their professionalism and love for the sport is reflected in their knowledge of how to jump safely again and again! David and Sarah are awesome instructors and awesome people. 12 jumps down, and many more to come!

Well... Tipped God $5 for the awesome air time.

Completed AFF, earned A-License and B-License ALL at Texas Skydiving Center.

Training: AWESOME. It's a mentally challenging sport and they designed their techniques to equip you. They're very direct with instructions to make sure you understand what you're doing.

Staff: AWESOME. They actually love their jobs! They always do their best to pump up a 1st time jumper even if it's "been a long day." The packers are freakin legit and honestly the softest openings I've had at any DZ in Texas! Student rigs maintained and always current.

Location: It's partially a farm... Fresh air... It screams true Texas location!

Fun Jumpers: Get confused as staff sometimes because they also greet you! Also cool group of steady regulars that aren't afraid to chat it up with a 1st timer(persuade into getting an "A" to have more cool air friends.)

Overall: Great for AFF and getting licensed! Great camera flyer and editing! Tandem Instructors beast the jumps! Awesome DZ!

I did a tandem here almost 4 years ago, and I felt at home even on that first jump. Since then I have had great jumps at other dzs, but Texas Skydiving is still where my heart is. The staff here now is a great group that really cares about every jumper that comes in, whether tandem, AFF, or fun jumper. Being a smaller dz allows for personal training tailored for each student's individual needs. Big landing area, super nice packing area, riggers always available for assistance, t.v. available to check out footage right after each jump, and great tunes blasting (most of the time). I feel lucky to call this my home dz.

After moving to Texas I decided to go for it and get my AFF, after some shopping around I decided on Texas Skydiving Center. I emailed back and forth with the owner, Cindy, who was very responsive and friendly in answering my many questions prior to booking my jumps. As I was driving down from Mansfield I needed a place to stay, not only were they kind enough to let me sleep on a couch at the DZ, but the whole staff were amazingly friendly during my stay. David and Sarah were fantastic teachers super fun to hang out with. The entire staff were great to be around and super supportive. I cannot say enough about how positive my experience was, I would highly recommend making the drive to Lexington. I can't wait to fly with you guys again!

Like the short description says above, I got my license at this DZ, and have learned a lot by coming here. One thing that most the people comment on coming out here, skydivers and tandems alike, is the unique rustic atmosphere. That has been cultivated out here with the small town feel and southern friendliness that is sure to make anyone feel welcome and relaxed. The DZ has a large landing area with many safe outs in case you find yourself in a situation, since it sits on a 100+ acre piece of flat open land. You won't feel like another number coming out here with the heads up, one on one instruction you will receive from instructors here, as well as a welcoming community of fun jumpers. I highly recommend it!
