I live over three hours away in Raleigh, NC and have a DZ 20 minutes from my house. I came to AAS because of the small DZ atmosphere and the hands-on care I get every time I come here. There are no cliques and everybody, staff and weekend jumpers alike, are more than willing to help you out. I came here three months ago for my first tandem and now I'm about to receive my A license. This is a great place for a first jump, or if you are a seasoned jumper looking for some RW. Just about everyone who comes here is excited about jumping and wants to get people together for 2, 3, 4 ways or more. I love coming here!
