i must be unbiased when i write a review. i have not been charmed by this DZ! everything is just more expensive than anywhere else. this place is like a factory. people go and jump and pack and jump....so far so good. but there s no real friendship in the air. if you are just a student or a rookis in skydiving, this place is not for you. the AFF is just too expensive and it does not include personal packing courses. i have met someone there who has 45 jumps but still need to have his rig inspected 3 times when he packs his parachute. they didn t make him do take his B licence exam. he still jumps 230sqf. and ready...? when he took his skydiving classes before jumping,they forgot to teach him the term 'arrondi' which means 'pull the brake handles'!!! then on his first jump, as he approached the ground,waiting for instructions, the instructor shouted 'arrondi' several times on the walki talki but the guy just wondered what this term meant (i agree he is not very smart...) he just hit the ground full speed. he cracked his tail bone! could not even get up. they asked him why he did not 'ARRONDI' and he just replied what does that mean??? they realised they had forgotten this tiny detail. the best is to come. he had to go to the hospital by his own self. came back 2 weeks later and noone remebered what happened. they did not apologize or offer a few jumps for their mistake. however, they have the best parachutes i ve ever jumped. just atoms with silhouette canopies. what struck me was that on the first time i jumped one of their rig, which i rented, i dropped my pilote chute and... waited for the canopy to open. nothing moved and i got very woried...thinking of cutting away... it took maybe 1 or 2 seconds... i finally lifted my head to realize that my canopy was already flying perfectly! the opening had been so smooth and fluid i swear i did not notice it was open. nevertheless, lots of people go there skydiving. if you are experienced and have your own gear, you will like it. if you go with your own friends, you ll have fun. you don t really get to meet and find people to jump with you. they organise the boogie of vichy. they had a antonov 72 coming for the event. jumped from it...it rocks!
