No, seriously... these events... they are very separate from the student and Tandem jump schedules... Even though an event might be going on, we will usually be going lots of Tandems too ad the same time even. Just as if the events weren't even happening. 

$19* WEEKDAY Super Otter jumps!


Look, really... if you want to jump on a day when we are having some sort of skydiving event or something, just call up and schedule your jump. It's OK. And we'd really love to have you.
