This page will give you information about the facilities of
SkydiveRatings – the school
Skydive City – the dropzone
Zephyrhills – the town
SkydiveRatings has their campus at Skydive City, one of Florida’s friendliest dropzones, in Zephyrhills, Florida.We own our building which was put up in August of 2010. It is clean, light and comfortable, situated in the bunker which serves as the training area at the dropzone.
We are proud of our building with 2 nice light classrooms. We want you to feel right at home while you are with us.The refrigerator is filled with bottled water and if you want to keep your food/drinks cold it is available to you.
The smaller of the 2 class rooms is office and debriefing room.
Here are some images of our facilities being used during the courses.
We have built several training aids that we introduce during our courses.
We either let you use them in your ground preps so you learn how to use training aids properly or we use them ourselves like the hanging harness in the Tandem rating courses.
