    Skydive Jacksonville

    I was working in Jacksonville for several weeks and was hoping to get in a few week-day jumps on those days I got off early. I looked at their website which clearly welcomes fun jumper (even listing lift ticket pricing). I called one day to see if they were jumping as I had gotten off work early; I was rudely informed "we don't welcome certified jumpers" and was then hung up on. If you're considering a tandem here, STAY AWAY!
  2. most larger dropzones (from my limited experience, mind you) will have some kind of indicator or Beer Light. The other thing that I have seen done is basically a beer line, so you can drink but not around anyone actively jumping. The best thing to do (and this goes for most things) is ask your instructor - they will surely know what the policies are and will most likely help get you introduced to some of the other jumpers. Congrats on going for AFF, it's an awesome ride :-)
