Construction Update @ Start Skydiving!
We will be adding four more inches of crushed topping to the new parking lot in May. The 4500sf Jump Institute addition is progressing well. The electrical is being inspected this week and the drywall is to begin next week. We have ordered three new 5 ton AC compressors and furnaces that will replace the existing systems in the next couple of weeks. The goal is to have the new 4500 square foot Jump Institute completed by June 1st.
We are putting the finishing touches on the landscaping around courtyard (see photos below!) and all of the new WiFi has been installed and is operational.
Channel 19 FOX WXIX in Cincinnati is installing the Start Skydiving Weather Cam this upcoming week to compliment there online weather feeds. We are planning on installing an additional 16 cameras that will have online feeds sometime this summer.
Our new greeting stone by the FBO door.
