Lots of very nice people. Best place to go do your first skydive!

Jerry's Skydiving Circus Rated 5 by: skydiver_21 on 2014-03-29

Pros: Everybody is very nice and hopes that you had a great day when you leave

I LOVE this dropzone and I will never go to another dropzone ever in my life. Richard is a VERY nice person and I VERY funny and has LOTS of funny stories from his past. Every body loves everybody there!

I cant imagine finding a better DZ.

Jerry's Skydiving Circus Rated 5 by: Hookeddiver on 2011-03-19

Pros: Nice atmosphere Extremely freindly staff
Cons: I wish the DZ was closer to my house.

From the start, the staff makes you feel at home. You get the feeling that just being a skydiver, or wanting to be one makes you family. The three cessna 182's are well maintained, and they use them efficiently so you don't have to wait long to get in the air, even when there are a large number of skydivers present. There are always enough willing skydivers present to put together a load, so if you want to go up, and the weather is good, you'll be able to go up. The owner greets everyone coming in. And, the staff and regular skydivers are friendly, supportive, and always willing to help. The staff makes it obvious that safety is a main concern, which puts new jumpers at ease. If you're wanting to try the sport, you won't be able to find a better DZ.

Great staff

Jerry's Skydiving Circus Rated 5 by: safire190 on 2010-08-15

Pros: Just over all great place to jump
Cons: none

I needed to get my reserve repacked. We no longer have a rigger at my dz, so I was refered to Franklin. I called Dick Money, and he was more than happy to help me out. I mailed him my rig and he had it ready for me the following weekend. Well worth the 3 hr drive to pick it up, and make a jump! Staff is awesome, great atmosphere, great ppl! Katalin the pilot is really cute too! Will be back!

My first jump

Jerry's Skydiving Circus Rated 5 by: emilyscloud on 2010-06-06

Pros: Incredible people
Cons: only 1 jumper at a time

I went here for my first skydiving experience. The people were incredible and made the the entire experience amazing. Dave and Scott were both fun and professional as were all the staff. After the jumps we all sat down and watched the video and stills together. I couldn't have asked for a better first time. I'll definitely be back.

Small DZ with large DZ benefits

Jerry's Skydiving Circus Rated 5 by: hornet1978 on 2010-04-25

Pros: 3 C-182s, 7+ coaches/instructors, Improved landing area
Cons: No turbine plane

I started @ Jerry's in November 09 after having 30+ jumps Army. The coaches and instructors took me under and taught me an immense amount of knowledge in the sport, getting me to my license at a steady rate.

Over the winter, 8 flags were added to the landing area, dramatically improving the learning for students as well as increasing safety for more experienced ones.

I've met jumpers from all over skydiving that come to 3FK for the simple fact that the commercial feeling of the sport is not there and feels more like a home each jump you make!
