I started my skydiving career at Arizona Areosports back in 1992. Bob Sprague (RIP) had a great static line program that I believe was the safest in the state. Along with a top notched staff I completed my A, B, & D licences there. After 650+ logged jumps and no malfunctions I ended my career in April 2008.
Skydive Arizona is where the big boys play. There I learned big ways and took RW classes to better my skills. THey now have a Wind Tunnel and if you ever get the itch to try skydiving that is a good safe alternative to "feel" what skydiving is like.
I would have to say the Rocky Point Boogies at Playa bonita were the best skydiving years of my life. The weather perfect in April, the beautiful beaches, and the fun people made this adventure well work the effort.
