Friendly dropzone for experienced jumpers

Skydive Midwest Rated 5 by: westonisbeston on 2016-05-30

Pros: Awesome vibe and staff
Cons: None experienced.

I was in the Chicagoland area for some weekend tunnel time and wanted to get some jumps in as well. Typically, I'd go to SDC or CSC, which are great dropzones that are worth traveling to. This time, I went with some friends to SDMW.

Friendly is the best word for this dropzone if you're an experienced jumper. The manifest staff were extremely accommodating when the DZM software wasn't working, remembering my name and always giving me service with a smile. The DZO, Keith freeflew with me on my first load and was fun to talk to on the ground. The facilities are well maintained, their otter is comfortable, and the vibe is super-welcoming.

I'll definitely be returning.

My new Home DZ! I love it here!!!

Skydive Midwest Rated 5 by: Cmp0806 on 2013-06-06

Pros: Twin Otter, two landing areas, great views, nice facilities, awesome people!
Cons: None

When I moved to the Milwaukee area, I shopped around a bit for a new home DZ. I started out at Skydive Milwaukee (Skyknights), which is a nice DZ, but never felt like home.

I went out to Midwest last summer to try it out and now am there every weekend! Last season they had an amazingly fast King Air; this season they have a nice Twin Otter. The packing area has mats and stays reasonably cool in summertime heat. Lockers and a kitchen area are available to experienced jumpers.

Whether you're there to fun jump, get your A license, or do your very first tandem, you will be in good hands and have the time of your life. The staff at MW are knowledgeable and friendly. The owner is committed to providing the best of everything, including regular load organizers, nice planes, and lots of social events.

The vibe is young, fun, and welcoming to all. No matter if you're coming out for your first jump or your 5,000th, Skydive Midwest will rock your socks off!

Large DZ facilities with a small DZ feel

Skydive Midwest Rated 5 by: JustForFun12 on 2012-07-04

Pros: Great dropzone and great people
Cons: None!

Great dropzone with a new building and a super fast kingair, that even has a sounds system! Awesome listening to some rock headed up to altitude. The people who work there are amazing too, always friendly and helpful and when they are not working, willing to go out for a jump. Which was nice for a solo fun jumper like me showing up to a new DZ when im passing thru, made me feel like one of their own. Rental gear is brand new, jump tickets are cheap, and regular free gear rentals days. what more could you ask for! oh yeah and its close to Chicago, so if your board at a meeting in the city like I was head on out!

An awesome place for fun jumpers

Skydive Midwest Rated 5 by: paul.Mcallister on 2011-11-10

Pros: Great ambiance
Cons: None

I did my A license at SDMW this season. All of the instructors are very knowledgeable and the ones I jumped with are great teachers as well. They have a good focus on safety without it being overt.

Right from day 1 the staff made me feel like one of the family. The fun jumpers are a vibrant group and its just a fun place to be. I found that after my A license that even the most experienced people would invite me to jump with them and share there knowledge.

Although they are busy with Tandems I never had to wait more than two loads to get a ride.

The King Air is a bad ass'd ride. It has a pair of turbines that up to altitude in less than 10 minutes and every ride I got this season was to full altitude.

My summer I had at SDMW is the most fun I have had in a long time!
