These staff members at I.V.P.C are some of the best around in my opinion, they really are passionate about the sport of skydiving. I started there and 3 months time taught me so much about how to ride the wind, safety and body positioning and work with me so diligently tht i was able to receive my A license at a fraction of the cost of other drop zones best prices around AAA+

I had such a great time learning to skydive here. the instructors really love the sport and just want to help you learn to be a skydiver. The weather is beautiful in the summer and the drop zone is in a nice, calm area

I took initial training and became licensed at IVPC. The DZ is full of great people who absolutely love jumping and sharing a wealth of skydiving knowledge. This was the most inexpensive place I've seen - they love skydiving and bringing new people into the sport.

At IVPC they really make you feel at home and that they want you to have a fun experience. Their is no sky god cliques here. Because they are a club not a business they don't have as many or great of aircraft as some DZ's, but the environment makes up for it any day. If you live in central IL. and you want to experience skydiving the way it was meant to be, check this place out.

Did my first jump here. Loved it. Great place. Been back 9 more times. Can't wait for warm weather to start jumping again. How about 40-50 degrees. Last jump was 40 degrees,they are always ready to jump. Weather permitting. Great bunch of jumpers!
