Nice Place To Jump In N Texas


Skydive Spaceland Dallas Rated 4 by: cdcollura on 2017-07-14

Pros: Large Facility With Great Jump Aircraft
Cons: Long Wait, Location, And "Low" Altitude

Jumped there a few times in Spring of 2017. The facility is very nice with full service and constantly turning at least 2 planes on a busy day. Staff was very accommodating and professional.

The location is a bit far and at the end of a bumpy dirt road (about 60 miles NE of Dallas / Fort Worth). When busy, I waited almost 4 hours to get on a load a couple times (I'm a licensed skydiver with almost 700 jumps at the time).

Jump altitude was never above 11,000 feet. At 10,500' I was confused on why everyone was exiting (I thought a group was exiting lower) and literally "yelled" at to "get the F*** out of the plane". Not sure why no one got "standard" 13,500' on any load.

Other than that, the place was overall a good experience with large landing areas and friendly to up-jumpers and students / tandems.

Had such a great time! Camped out for two nights and jumped two days. Everyone was super cool and fun. Ended up doing group jumps with ppl I've never met before because this place is not at all about cliques. The packing room is A/C and fun! There is a PlayStation 4 in there ... Awesome!

Promises not kept

My wife did a skydive in Fort Worth last year. We never got the DVD as we had agreed to. Right before Christmas a woman called and said they had found the footage and the DVD would be there in a couple of days. No DVD. I've been emailing back and forth and they have poromised at least three times to ship it to me. The last email Ben said he was taking to the psot office himself. Still no DVD. I say buyer beware. This group does not live up to their promises.

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.
