Willing to travel for AFF

Recommended Posts

I live in New Hampshire and while there are plenty of places within a few hours I can get my A license at, the weather seems to make getting more than a single jump every week or two pretty challenging. It's been three weeks since FJC and my home DZ has had precisely one student get their first jump in (lucky me... my daughter slept in that day and is still waiting for her level one).

I'm willing to take time off work to travel and try to get a bunch of jumps in. I'd like to get my A license as quickly as possible. Knowing I'm coming from the east coast USA, where would you recommend I go that has quality instruction and a good combination of aircraft and weather to achieve that goal? International travel is out. US travel is in... I'm going to be as far west as Arizona in November and could see adding to that trip.

SDAZ, Skydive Arizona. In Eloy AZ, near Casa Grande. Probably the biggest DZ anywhere, with the most dependable weather in the USA and cool enough in November with the heat of the summer over. There are also several DZs in Florida that could take care of your needs, but the weather is less dependable.

What he said. Here's the School info for Skydive Arizona https://www.adventuresinskydiving.com/learn-to-skydive 

The Halloween Boogie at the end of Oct (oct 25-27) is a blast if you can make that time work.

Two recommendations is all the more compelling. Looks like I'll be changing my flight. :)
