SkyKef, located on the Be'er Sheva Airport near the city of Be'er Sheva is the only DropZone in Israel which offers a professional and welcoming experience to international fun jumpers and local jumpers alike. I drove there from the heart of Tel Aviv and the entire trip took me about 1 hour. I had two Jump days in Israel during my visit, and I am sorry to say that I wasted one of them at PARADIVE which is the only other Drop Zone in israel. PARADIVE literally turned me away, but SkyKef welcomed me with an extremely professional and gracious attitude. The DZO, who is a brand new change is a very experienced skydiver and operator, and has in a short time created a very positive environment for staff and customers. She introduced herself to me and immediately took the time to check over some basic safety items (such as my log book, reserve repack and license.) After that, she wished me a fun day and sent me off for my first load. I arrived there around 11:00am, and stayed until the Sunset load. I got 4 amazing Jumps in, although if I pushed it a bit harder I could have gotten in 6. All of my jumps were with other Fun Jumpers who were local Israeli citizens, or staff members who did fun jumps in between work jumps. The local fun jumpers were very friendly as was the staff. They had several Packers available for the entire day, as well as an on-site rigger who introduced himself after noticing that I was a new face. He also asked to check out my reserve repack date, which impressed me a lot. After I told him who already inspected it, he was completely cool. They are serious about safety but they absolutely do not give anybody a hard time. Its really a bigtime fun but safe environment. They had a great lunch facility with various freshly made items and a full stock of drinks. They also have great washroom facilities, definitely a place where you could spend the entire day. They also have free WiFi which is accessible from almost anywhere including the office, packing area, picnic tables, breakout rooms and restaurant. They also have a great class room setup with a few large screen TV’s complete with HDMI mini, Component, Composite and various other connectors for viewing camera footage. Most of the loads consisted of 3-5 Tandems with at least 2-5 Fun jumper slots. Near the end of the day, the loads were almost entirely fun jumpers. All in all, I’d definitely come back to this DZ. It has the feel of a large scale, professionally run world-class drop zone.
