It is by no means inclusive of everything so if you see something that needs to added say something and if you have questions...ASK!!

Landing Area and Patterns

In the above pics you will find valuable information about landing areas, obstacles, and outs. We follow best practices concerning landing patterns, obstacle avoidance, and safety according to the USPA BSRs. If you have any questions please ask Jeff, Eric, or any other staff member or up-jumper on the ground for information.

Hazzards

There are several minor hazards surrounding and inside the landing areas. First there are several large drainage culverts that have collapsed and are creating huge caverns bisecting the experienced and student landing areas adjacent to the runway. Please be careful not to land inside them, you will disappear! Directly to the north of the manifest is a large beacon tower, if is not in a landing area however it can be on approach to your landing area so be aware it is there. Finally, just west of the airport there are power-lines running along airport road, if you have to land out there please be mindful and don't hit them.

I’ve been jumping since 1986, when my kid told me he was jumping here, I came to check the quality of their teaching, services, equipment and staff.
I fell in love with this awesome family!
Today I was blessed enough to be in the same load with my son on his first training jump.

Very down to earth and friendly staff. I did a tandem one weekend on a Saturday and immediately signed up for the ground course to start my path in getting my jumps in to be licensed. I took the ground school the following Friday and as soon as the winds die down I'll be making my first 'solo' jump. It was the most blissful feeling imagined. I'm already jacked about this weekend! The staff are very knowledgeable and can answer any questions you may have.
