Maybe it’s too cold at your home DZ or just in the mood to visit Florida. Well folks Skydive Deland is an amazing location to Jump and visit many of our gear manufactures. From amazing weather and people to some of the top brands Deland has much to offer. This drop zone offers amazing accommodations and the staff is more than willing to help you find your way around. I would recommend staying at least three to four solid days depending on your schedule and mode of transportation.

We at Pussfoot love taking road trips. Road trips give us the opportunity to meet amazing people and visit new drop zones. Having our own car on a skydiving adventure gives us a sense of safety and an additional place to store belongings. So if you are like us and are going to drive there are some things to know.

Ok so this is Florida, one min you have Blue Sky's, and the next second you have complete cloud cover and rain. So what do you do on a weather hold? Well if you think you are done for the day feel free to grab a Beer. However, if you think the day could be saved and want to keep jumping here are a few things to do.
You are in DeLand. The Mecca for Skydiving manufacturing, located within walking distance ( 2 -5 min) you will find Alti2, M2, Vigal, Mirage Containers, UPT and Blue Skies Mag. If you drive off site you will find PD. So why not drop in and see if you can get a tour.
