    Skydive The Farm

    AMAZING DZ. Hans the DZO and his wife sandy rock and the rest of the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Packers have a great attitude . Everyone is there to help and the instructors are top-notch. No major complaints with this dz, pretty much everyone is friendly and helpful. On site rigging by Mike G at chuting star makes it a one stop shop. Safety is first here which is extremely comforting. The landing area is huge, flat, smooth and easy to spot from the air. I don't jump there as much as I would like to because its a 2.5 hour drive for me but as spring and summer approach I'll be out there more. Visit, you wont be disappointed.

    For a beginner like myself this canopy is great. Color coded lines make packing a breeze. Toggles are extremely responsive and can do some pretty tight turns. Front risers can be held down without too much pressure buildup with a little bit of muscle, makes going fast (on a relative basis) fairly easy. Easy deep flare, flat glide ratio, pretty short recovery arch which is great for beginners like myself to keep me from getting into too much trouble.

    skydiving fear

    If your not scared somethings wrong with you. I was scared shitless until AFF6, then something happened and it all got better. I only have 40 jumps but I still have the fear in the back of my head, especially after getting injured last month. Talk to high jump # guys at your DZ and ask them about it.

    I didnt think any other skydivers existed at Auburn either, then I looked harder and found one with a D- license and 700 jumps, oh and hes 19. Look around and you might be amazed at what you find.
