    When I first came to Skydive Nyköping I was surprised of how open everyone was. This was the first skydiving club I ever visited and I couldn't be more happy I went here. One day with these guys doing a tandem and that made me wanna be a skydiver and a part of the club. They have a great little cessna 207 turbine for fast lifts to 4000m with a massive landing area. Usually a bit sidewindy but ok! / skydiverslog.com

    Ok so the first time I rocked up I was greeted by a girl on reception who was to be honest fairly nice. I was happy until the owner walked it and somehow all the morale in the room (including the staffs) was immediately sucked out, this set the tone for pretty much every visit since. The owner is probably the most arrogant, rude, and miserable person I've ever met. I really cannot see why anyone would return, especially as the prices are so stupidly high...... I think people only return because some of the staff there do just enough to sometimes make up for the managements incompetence and complete lack of customer service. Honestly if the owner had talked to me like I over heard her with others she'd have had a shot across the bows immediately, and unfortunately this attitude seems to have caught on with a couple of her staff. The cafe is crazy overpriced and to be honest an embarrassment, it also seeing pretty much zero customer service and effort. The aircraft aren't anything special, but honestly aren't bad either, no real variation but hey they work so can't complain too much. The manifest system is different, writing your name in pen on a board and then waiting to be added to a computer system (not too bad for me, but surely it would be easier to just check in at a manifest window?). The system that displays the manifest is only up in the cafe, and has no indication as to when your lift will be, you sort of just sit around checking the screen every 5 mins until you're on call. A few times I've overheard a member of staff (don't recall his name) briefing up jumpers like they were kids, not professional and if he'd done the same with me he'd have soon regretted it, but not my business and rather than cause waves, I bit my tongue on that one. Judging by the looks he got, a few people won't be jumping there again. The opening hours are stated but in my experience they are often late I could go on and on as I've seen some really terrible attitudes and bad service flying around there but I best just sum it up....... Expensive for what it is (much cheaper and better places available), customer service the worst I've seen (besides a few staff - sorry to you guys about this), Owner is obnoxious and arrogant (lowers the mood of the entire place), overpriced dz, overpriced cafe, no morale and flat atmosphere, not punctual and late to open On the plus side though, the wings bar next door is really good, cheap, nice ale, and run with a friendly service

    I arrived during Voss Freefly Festival. What a pity !! (I could just stay a few days there during a trip - not the entire week as freeflyers do) There were no 1-day-fee to allow people like me to jump during this time. So... either pay a 150 $ fee for maybe 5 or 6 jumps... ...or don't. I didn't ! People from the staff didn't look so interested in welcoming me or other people for a few jumps as they were in money. Too sad. But the place is really scenic!

    Its a small skydiving club, non-commercial, driven by people who is jumping there. That the reason for very cheap prices. They charge only to make club go around and not to earn money. The club-house is right next to Molde Airport, which they use for jumping. On weekends there only 2-4 planes a day, that use it, so they have whole airport for them self. HUGE landing area (about 1.5 km long and 500m wide), impossible to miss. People are super friendly and nice, trying to do their utmost best to make you feel welcome and home from the minuet you get there. Most of them jump RW (FS), but you can find someone to join you for FF, wing-suit or tracking jump. You find people of all level of experience, so there will be always someone to join you. As well, if you pay a bit extra, they can fly you and drop off close to The TrollWall. SuperB experience! Just a must to try! After jumping, there is a good chance to take a beer or two, join people for diner and a night out at Molde to make your experience complete! As well, there is tons of places to BASE jump and many experienced people, who will help you. If you are somewhere close and want to have amazing jump, that the right place!
