A club (not a business) that welcomes you with open arms.

Maytown Sport Parachute Club Rated 5 by: zephyrzone on 2012-05-01

Pros: You'll feel like family, Exceptionally experienced "staff", Landing area
Cons: Lots of corn?

I started skydiving almost one year ago and got licensed at Skydive Delmarva (another fantastic DZ). Delmarva is 2.5 hours from where I live and I had no idea Maytown Sport Parachute Club (MSPC) existed until I looked on drop MSPC is 60 minutes away. I had no idea what I was in for...

Skydiving changed my life and the people at MSPC changed my life again. I have amazing new friends now and learn from World Champions. I feel so lucky and honored to be a part of the club. New jumpers will be shocked to learn that coaches teach for free and don't accept tips because this isn't a commercial establishment, it's truly a club, just a bunch of skydivers all having fun. Once you start jumping here, you'll become part of the family. Once the beer light is on you'll be downing Red Stripe with your jump pilot, the club president, a few world champions and among the most well known riggers in the country. You owe it to yourself to check out Maytown.

Coolest Experience of My Life!

Maytown Sport Parachute Club Rated 5 by: Rebel954 on 2011-08-23

Pros: Incredible location; friendly, knowledgable instructors
Cons: Honestly, none that I can think of...

If you have EVER thought, "Skydiving seems pretty cool, I should try it sometime," I have two words for you: "DO IT!" I took my first jump 48 hours ago & I SO want to jump again! The crew at Maytown Sport Parachut Club truly love what they do & want to spread the enthusiasm. I had a blast & they made me feel completely comfortable. Thanks John for making my 1st jump such an awesome experience! I'll be back...

Amazing place for all jumpers.

Maytown Sport Parachute Club Rated 5 by: freefallfrom10k on 2011-08-18

Pros: Great enviorment, Alway helpful, Fun loving and not in the sport for money.
Cons: None

As a new learning jumper it was nice to have a DZ less than 15 mins from my house. The moment I came here I fell in love. The atmosphere is unbelievable. Everyone is like a huge family with welcome arm, willing to take on the next addition to the club. It really is a club. They do tandems just to pay the bills and bring new people into the sport. I have been to Chambersburg, and yes I love the big fast planes but id rather go to Maytown. Hell I go to school 3 and a half hours from home and STILL travel that distance to jump even though there is a DZ an hour away. All I can say to sum this up is come out, make a jump. Ill bet Maytown is added as one of your favorites.

Great drop zone to earn your rating!

Maytown Sport Parachute Club Rated 5 by: nfortner on 2011-06-05

Pros: Super friendly people, wide open spaces, experienced and competent instructors
Cons: Sanitation facilities

I've only jumped a couple of times now, but Maytown is what got me hooked on the sport. The best people, best instructors, low key/low pressure environment, very affordable rates, and plenty of encouragement and advice from the seasoned vets. It's a rural airfield, so the niceties of the city may not be as prevalent (bathrooms, sinks, etc.), but it's completely made up by the atmosphere.

They have two 1950s/60s model straight-tail Cessna 182s that have been up-engined, and one that has had wing extensions to squeeze a few more operational feet out of it. While the paint may not be very pretty, these old workhorses seem reliable and are by all accounts lovingly maintained.

The fact that they aren't there to make a buck, but rather just for the love of the sport and to introduce others to this pastime (lifestyle?) only serves to make it a better experience. Even if you're here to just do a tandem jump, it will not be one of the "cattle through the chute" experiences you'll get with some of the bigger for-profit DZs in the region. You'll get personal attention and encouragement from the instructor who will answer any questions you have and will make you feel right at home.
