Almost 5 stars but...

After being away from the sport for 20+ years, I took the AFF course.

Everything was top rate. The class was skillfully, and competently taught.

I paid the extra money for a cameraman to record this. Before loading up, I asked him, begged him several times to NOT add music. "Just the wind…"

He looked at me like I was crazy.

Well guess what? I get home and review the video. The loud, obnoxious, "Porn Flick" music blares away. This was my only letdown. When I called to inquire about this, I was told that the raw video is gone. (Hello Lois Lerner…)

This person doesn't understand the rule of business that states "The customer is ALWAYS right!"

Now, can I figure out how to remove the music track without removing the wind?

Four stars where a solid five would have been easily given.

Don't listen to all the negative reviews about the DZ. Initially I was scared after reading them. But once I started my AFF, I gained confidence on them. Skydive Dallas has one of the best instructors! You can feel the vibe once you step the foot in there. If you need strong education and knowledge on skydiving this is the place to come. Hang out with the instructors at the DZ to learn more and more. They are willing to spend hours of time with you. Over all for me its a great experience. All other students in my AFF batch love skydive Dallas too.

The atmosphere is full of smiles and joy! Everyone loves everyone out there. Staff, and fun jumpers alike will come up to u gear check you make sure ur safe. They will also tell u if ur being unsafe, they are looking out for you and the others in the sky with you! The staff even picks u up in a golf cart if u land sort of far away they always make sure ur gear is in good condition as well as They will find your lost canopy and free bag if u had a chop! Also they ENFORCE the beer rules, so there is always beer in the fridge and
one can buy beer 2.6miles away, also there is a bar right up the street called the "loft,"and guess who runs it? Skydivers! All in all skydive Dallas is an awesome, laid back environment, and when they see a fresh jumper they immediately want to make you feel at home! If there is a staff member around who is not currently working he will make an effort to jump with you or get you organized in a group! But the beer is the best part, the after hours debauchery is a blast every time!

After reading all the great reviews I had to visit myself. Skydive Dallas has awesome facilities and aircraft. The staff were courteous, professional, and very safety conscious. I will be spending every other weekend there.

I jumped at Skydive Dallas while visiting Ft. Worth last weekend. This place is amazing. The facilities are some of the best I've seen. Their plane is gorgeous and you get consistently good altitude (13.5k). The staff was helpful and friendly and I met several outgoing local fun jumpers. The landing area is wide open with plenty of outs; separate areas for hi-pro landings, great C/D area, huge student area and a "transition" area for those who want to do their own thing. I even got a super tasty ham and cheese sandwich and yummy crispy tater tots at the cafe for lunch. It is a bit of a drive from the metroplex, particularly if you're coming from the Ft. Worth side, but I thought it was well worth it.
