    Skydive Palatka

    I dropped by Palatka a while back for the Falling Gators Collegiate boogie. If you are arriving at this DZ after dark, call before hand and let them know you're coming! There is a gate at the airport that closes after dark. Had an awesome weekend hanging out with a bunch of the UF Falling Gators and Art, the DZO is one of the most down to earth people I've met. It's nice to see a DZO actively involved in all aspects of his DZ. During the weekend I saw him rig, pack when needed and take tandems. They had the Skyvan from Deland for the weekend, so I didn't get a chance to jump the Caravan, but from takeoff to exit it seemed pretty fast from the ground. The main landing area is somewhat tight for newer jumpers, but they do have a very large open alternate landing area with pickup. Overall an awesome experience and will definitely be back to this DZ whenever I am in FL.

    Skydive The Farm

    I've been going to STF for a little over a year. I didn't feel quite right writing a review prior to this as I had no basis for comparison. After a little bit of travelling to some other DZs, I now feel that I can truthfully give top ratings to my home DZ and weekend vacation home. By far, I do think we have one of the friendliest staffs and fun jumper groups out there. There are DZs out there that you can go there knowing no one and leave knowing no one. Not here. The only way you can do a solo here is if you specifically tell us that you're working on something. If you get a chance to visit, come say hello and experience the farm vibe and after hours bonfires yourself!
