Licensed jumper trying to jump in Vegas

Recommended Posts

Mesquite is the main fun jumper DZ in NV, but it's a bit of a drive (80 mi or so as I remember).
The DZ down in Jean is mainly a tandem factory, but they're way closer and will let you fun jump there if you're reasonably experienced (20 mi South of Vegas). They do require an AAD and they usually put fun jumpers into the DZ out in the desert so you'll lose time taking the bus ride back between loads. I think they recently started landing tandems at the airport, they will let some up jumpers land there, but the experience requirements are robust.

Cheers,

I would wholeheartedly recommend Mesquite. Went to the tandem factory in Jean one day with a friend. Didn't jump. Very unfriendly to fun jumpers and super expensive. Went to Mesquite the next day with a different friend doing their first jump and it was the exact opposite.

Quick google search says that's a 5 1/2hr drive. Not exactly closeby



Point being midweek it may mean the difference of jumping or not. Eloy generally has multiple loads every day. With many jumpers. As compared with a solo fun jump from Vegas. Just sayin.
