All of the staff were very friendly and cautious. I recently got off AFF at a different dropzone and wanted to jump while I was in the area. They made sure I was prepared by going over everything I needed to know about the particulars of the dropzone and jumping their student canopy. I would recommend this dropzone to anybody. Thanks Roy, Anne, John, and Scott

I skydived here for the first time ever as a tandem and it was absolutely amazing, the staff were friendly and seemed to be very serious about what they are doing! i HATE small planes and i wasnt TOO scared of this one, it was good and the plane was nice and even though i was super scared i did it and it was awesome and plan on going back ASAP! Awesome place to go!

I recently visited this dropzone and found it to be a refreshing change from the typical LARGE Florida dropzone. The staff and jumpers were very friendly giving it that midwest cessna dropzone feel.The grand caravan was very nice.Most of the jumpers were fairly low timers in the 200-400 jump range but they were all eager and it won't be for long before there is a wealth of experience bouncing around.There wasn't a lot in the way of facilities but they had covered packing with good ventilation and a comfortable place to rest when you weren't jumping.I would highly recommend that if you are in the area for you to stop on by and give them a chance.I'm sure you'll have just as nice a time as I did.
