  1. This is (by far) the closest DZ to where I live. The people there are really nice and I have had no trouble jumping with other people as a fun jumper (but also I'm a girl and I know that makes it easier).

    I'm a bit put off by the way everything is cash (jumps? cash or pay a hefty card fee. Pack job? Cash straight to the packer); I tried to buy a rig that they had on consignment and they requested that I pay in cash (they wanted me to bring $4000 worth of literal cash to the dz???).

    Lastly, I really don't like the lack of concern for safety. There is no DZSO, I've seen someone straight out of A-license decide to downsize without consulting a coach/instructor, I don't think anyone counts canopies as they land.

  2. I would highly recommend doing AFF here. The instructors do a great job of holding your hand all the way through and really know their shit.
    I stayed for to do my B license, but found that AFF is their main focus, B rels and other parts of the B license were a lot less structured. I had to actively seek out packing lessons/coached jumps that were included in the package.
    A lot of the fun jumpers are excellent skydivers but can be a little cliquey and not too friendly to those who are coming straight out of AFF.

  3. Really lovely people and great vibe - even for English speakers. They were so friendly even though we didn't speak a word of Lithuanian.
    Fantastic for tandems, great instructors and really good camera services. Very easy to get to via train - short walk from Kyviškių station, easily accessible from Vilnius.
    Although they are very friendly to fun jumpers, the plane is very old and only goes to 3km (and it's a long climb at that!). Rental gear was very new and high quality.
