At this DZ you can almost have as much fun hanging out with everyone as you can jumping out of the plane. It's a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere and you can ask anyone a question and get an answer without feeling like an idiot.
I did my whole AFF in one weekend with 2 gorgeous gals as my jumpmasters and still had time to make my 1st "alone" jump at the end of the day.
They have a new Pac-750 with killer music playing on the quick ride up. It runs every weekend and even on weekdays if they can get enough people to jump, otherwise they have 2 182's which rarely go below 11k.
The instructors are very friendly and will make time to help students with what they need, which is not the attitude I have had at "other" DZ's.
There's a nice rigging hanger with all the latest stuff you need (thanks Corky for fixing my Galaxy). The shaded hangout area has misters and plenty of couches and benches to chill on. Camping is allowed and definitely recommended if you like having a good time after a long day of jumping (especially if your a student because your going to be buying a lot of beer for all your "firsts"). Bring a tent or crash in the bunkhouse and they have showers you can use in the morning.
Once you go Taft, you never drive past.
