Best DZ to Pack at? in General Skydiving Discussions February 18, 2012 I've done it a few times. Hang around. Get to know the packers. I think being cool and easy to work with is what will get you on. If they look slammed, ask them if they need help. Sometimes the answer will be no but sometimes there are great opportunities. I've ended up being someone's packer for the day when they were on lots of loads. I've also done it full time. It helps a lot to be on your game or comfortable asking questions and receiving feedback.
