Dropzone Reviews posted by mj4mjm

  1. I have had the opportunity and pleasure of jumping at Østre Æra for 3 years in a row now!
    The dropzone is an amazing place in the middle of a forest in Norway.
    The staff and skydivers there are among the nicest people I have met anywhere.
    The facilities are excellent, with both a huge landing area, a huge hanger with a padded packing mat to pack in, a first rate bunk house and showers and food kiosk with cooks that prepare great food.
    They have an AN-28 that takes 22 jumpers to altitude in 15 minutes and two An-28's during their July boogie.
    The dropzone has an open FS competition during their July boogie, called the "6 Way Poker Meet" that is an absolute blast, ending with medals, tequila shots, a lot of laughs and a poker game for quite a bit of money. That meet is one of the most fun meets that I have ever been to and definitly worth making a trip to participate in!
    And speaking of the boogie, I found the organizing at the boogie to be really first rate for everything from freeflying, to free one on one coaching for low time jumpers, to large formation (12 to 40) coaching and organizing.
    I never had the desire to go to Norway every summer, but the people at this drop zone bring me back!
    Be careful about going to their boogie, because this place is addicting!
