    Skydive Twin Cities

    This is probably still one of my favorite DZs that I have jumped at while traveling with my rig. A few years ago two colleagues and I (who all jump) were traveling for work in the Minneapolis area. We dropped in at STC on the weekend and again during the week to get a few jumps in. The people, facility, grass landing area and twin otter were all great. I still dream of getting some more work in that area so that I can go back to visit... I mean jump!

    Atlanta Skydiving Center

    My wife and I were in the Atlanta area for work and brought along our rigs this past week. We jumped at a few local DZs and found this one to be our least favorite. The attitude at ASC was geared more to catering the tandems. I've read a lot of reviews and opinions about this DZ and their marketing/business plan, but I wanted to give the place a fair shot myself. Unfortunately I'd have to agree with a number of people about this place, and I really didn't have a whole lot of time there to peal back the onion skin. The sub-staff (video guys and instructors) were very friendly though. I actually elevated my overall score on ASC based on their interest in the up-jumper crowd. The landing area was a bit hectic, as people were and landing in multiple directions (not just the swoopers). All in all I would not be surprised if there was an incident in the landing area at some point. They do have a nice building with a/c in the packing area. And there is a super nice guy that cooks up food that is convenient to buy on-site. If your in the area visiting, I'd advise checking out a few of the surrounding DZs first. You'll be happier for it.

    Skydive The Farm

    I was on a biz trip in the Atlanta region along with my wife this past week and we both brought our rigs along to keep us company. We stopped in at The Farm for a day of jumping and had a great time. They were in between turbines (had recently sold the caravan and were awaiting their new twin otter), but even using the small Cessna was fun!! Nice landing area, friendly people, talking parrot (which every DZ should have), and an overall great vibe. Stop in and see Mike at Chuting Star as he is a great guy to talk to about everything rigging. I wish this was my home DZ....
