Other things to expect:
If the weather is questionable, call ahead. We do not jump during inclement weather. However, just because there are clouds in the sky, does not mean that rain is guaranteed. We continually monitor the weather so call before coming to the drop zone and we will let you know if weather is a factor
Skydiving is not “quick”. Please expect to spend up to seven hours at the drop zone. There are a number of reasons that delays may occur. You are welcome to bring a book, a picnic, a volleyball – anything to pass the time. We have a volleyball court, picnic table and lounging area. It is our goal to make your wait as short and as comfortable as possible.
If you would like your skydive experience to be captured on film, let your instructor know. For a fee, we will video and capture photos.
