3 Cool Places to Try Skydiving In Soflo!
Some say skydivers have a death wish; others call them adrenaline junkies. We wouldn’t disagree on either count, but our reason for taking the jump would be just as valid as anyone else’s. It’s a life-altering experience and different each time.Besides, what better place to skydive than in South Florida.
1. Skydive Miami!
Located at the Homestead General Airport, Skydive Miami uses a large modern indoor facility with plenty of room for your friends to come and be a part of the “scene”. They offer an indoor air-conditioned packing area, with Certified Parachute Riggers on staff. The airplane is a Cessna Caravan (15 place) and their pilots are highly experienced and oversee the regular maintenance of the aircraft by FAA certified mechanics. These guys and gals use only the most advanced “State of the Art” equipment available. Both the main and reserve parachutes are “Square”, known both for their reliability and soft landings. The equipment here is routinely inspected in an ongoing effort to provide you with a new and well maintained inventory. On all of the student equipment, they have installed a new mini-computer “Automatic Opener” called CYPRES. It is designed to deploy the reserve parachute if the jumper fails to pull the ripcord. Safety first right?
