This facility is mostly complimented by the dropzone that it sits on. The coaches are world-class, the air is mostly smooth even on 40 mph wind dust devil days, and the stoke on the dropzone is invigorating. The books seem to get filled quick so I recommend calling the day before. The bent prop saloon is awesome I dont care what anybody says but it is in the middle of the desert, so thats about as comfortable as outside of the tunnell gets here. But your here to skydive right? So who cares if it gets a little hot.

Having a tunnel on your dropzone can be good, having a 14' tunnel at an amazing dropzone is even better! The non-recirculating tunnel has a lot of drawbacks - it's hot inside when it's hot outside, you get sand in your face, etc - but one of the big advantages is that the air behaves a lot more like the sky, it's not as crisp as recirculating tunnels. There's something super, super nice about landing your canopy from a sunset jump and wandering over to the tunnel and flying with a great instructor like Vince. Petter also coaches there a lot and he's an awesome instructor. The potential for combination camps at Skyventure Arizona, flying with the world class skydivers and then wandering to the tunnel for coaching cannot be minimized as a huge advantage to this tunnel. The DZ itself is awesome, that's well known. The main drawback to this tunnel is that it's in Eloy which isn't the best place for food or non-dropzone stuff. If you're staying on the DZ it's pretty great, however.
