First skydive but because of my experience at CSC, it definitely will not be my last!

CSC - Chicagoland Skydiving Center Rated 5 by: HollyAnn06 on 2013-06-24

Pros: Everything down to every last detail was amazing!
Cons: NA

I have never been skydiving before but it has been on my bucket list for quite some time now. So when Charity Skydive offered a free skydive for raising funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundations, I jumped all over it. Why not ¡§jump out of a perfectly good airplane¡¨ for such a great cause?!?! I am glad I did because it was the best experience I have ever had. From the time I walked in the door at Chicagoland Skydiving Center, I witnessed excellence customer service! The facility was immaculate along with their staff. My instructor (Buzz) that I did a tandem jump with was really nice and explained everything to me, making my jump more enjoyable. I also purchased a video and photos considering this was my first jump and I wanted to remember that day forever and I am glad I did because the video and photos were amazing thanks to my camera guy Chris. Once I got to the ground I enjoyed their amazing food and beer. My overall experience at CSC was so great that I plan on making my second jump this August. I recommend all to try skydiving and do it at CSC!! ƒº

Awesome Experience!

CSC - Chicagoland Skydiving Center Rated 5 by: ashlarson05 on 2013-05-15

Pros: Staff, Facility, Scenery, Food, Everything
Cons: None

The staff at CSC is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The facility was great with a really good bar and grill to hang out in before and after the jump. My tandem instructor Paul was a great coach and my camera guy did an awesome job with my photos and video (worth the price and then some!). Definitely check this place out whether you're a first-timer or an experienced thrill seeker.

Awesome DZ

CSC - Chicagoland Skydiving Center Rated 5 by: SkydiverShawn on 2013-03-16

Pros: Greatest ride(s) in the business
Cons: None

I first jumped at CSC last summer and was completely impressed to say the least.

As soon as I arrived I was welcomed by the staff and after completing paperwork and gear checks I was personally taken to mainfest where I was introduced to the manifest staff and given a thorough briefing of the DZ and landing area.

As a low numbers jumper and not there with friends I was introduced to Rich Madsen, who was doing low numbers load organizing that day. What a treat! Rich was amazing and an awesome guy to jump with. In all we did six jumps and I did one solo, all in just a few hours!

This is a full service DZ with everything that a skydiver could want. Doug Smith and his staff are top notch and they have created a spectacular place to jump and hang out.

Wonderful place to jump!

CSC - Chicagoland Skydiving Center Rated 5 by: sunshine on 2013-03-16

Pros: Best showers of any dz
Cons: None i can think of

CSC is a fantastic dropzone! The facilities are amazing. They have a huge packing area, super clean bathrooms, and an on-site restaurant with terrific food! The staff is friendly and so are the jumpers.

They have discounted jump days on Wednesdays, and the rigging loft is run by a highly skilled rigger.

Just come here and check it out for yourself.

Proud to call CSC my home DZ!

CSC - Chicagoland Skydiving Center Rated 5 by: Darn0k on 2013-02-13

Pros: Clean and well-maintained aircraft, Clean and high-quality facilities, Friendly and accessible staff, High focus on safe
Cons: It's the mid-west, so the weather is iffy, but that's not this drop-zone's fault; however, throughout mid-season the wea

I made my first AFF-Solo jump here and continued my training in fall of 2011. I couldn't wait so I followed my AFF instructor to Florida over the winter to finish my A-License and came back in the spring to get my jump on! And, OH WHAT FUN I HAD!!! I learned so much throughout the 2012 season, through courses, camps, wind-hold chats, bon-fire chats, boogies, trips to the local Mexican resturant, Dinner at the on-the-DZ-resturant/bar called the Flight Deck Bar and Grill ... there is no wonder why I call this place my home DZ. And, did I mention the showers? They are so spacious and clean; always having lots of hot water. The music is always playing, the packing area is always clean, the manifest is always friendly and accommodating. The only thing that would make this place better is if I owned a better trailer in the on-site RV park so that I could live on the DZ and work from my RV using the super fast WiFi internet access available to all guests. If you are visiting, they have FREE camping for tent campers and reasonable fees for the RV park slots/hookups or, if you prefer, there are hotels/motels in nearby Rochelle where you can obtain "Skydiver Discounts" for rooms. Come and see why I just love this place!
