  1. Hello! I'm hoping to get some input/recommendations on training and training centers. I live in Juneau, Alaska so there are no training centers (or drop zones ) nearby. This means I need to find a TC that can provide the training all at once instead of completing the levels over months. I've mostly just researched TCs on the west coast but I'm open to any TC. I would also like a TC with a wind tunnel (input on how important this is is appreciated) and it should be in an area with good weather to avoid weather delays as much as possible. I keep coming back to Skydive Perris since they offer 14-day course, but they seem like they could be a little too "Disneyland" for me. However, they do have a bunkhouse, restaurant, etc so that would make travel planning so much easier! Skydive Fyrosity has also caught my interest. Kapowsin Air Sports is the closest TC and sounds great but I worry about the weather and it looks like they only provide AFF courses on Saturday mornings? Any recommendations or input is greatly appreciated! If you're recommending a TC I would also like to know what time of year is best. Any information on maintaining currency is appreciated as well. It sounds like I will need to complete a jump every 30 days to stay current but this is going to be difficult to do since I live in such a remote place. Once I'm licensed I hope to spend a weekend (or so) every month or two jumping but I'm sure there will be times I won't be able to go as often. Is it really just one jump with a coach and I'm current again? How much extra are coached jumps typically? TYIA! Hopefully my ignorance isn't too apparent lol. I look forward to learning more and hopefully getting to know some of you! :)
