The original Skydive America in Immokalee, Florida, was sold and re-named on February 1st. 2001, to a small group of investors/skydivers. That's about the only change. We are still the friendliest DZ in Florida, reports Roy Torgeirson. The DZ operates a C-182 and a Grand Caravan. Jumpers from the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area don't mind the extra 10 to 20 minute drive to be able to get plenty of jumps from the Grand Caravan without the wait at some busier drop zones!
Skydive Naples will try to attract more European jumpers as well. There are Motels, Gambling Casino, Drag Strip and Restaurants within walking distance of the DZ. A brand new Racetrack (oval) with a full service camp-ground is under way right next to the airport. And they are only about 40 minutes from Fort Myers Beach, and beach jumps they do on a regular basis.
This drop zone is a must to visit next time you're on the west coast of Florida. You're guaranteed to have a great time.
