Opening weekend at Music City Skydiving!!

Awesome opening weekend at Music City Skydiving

April 1st started off with dodgy weather, low clouds were the order of the day for Saturday until about 1:30 p.m. Once the sky began to open the views were 100 miles in all directions.

The Super King Air arrived shortly after the break and MCS was off and running back to backs. We had several amazing groups including “Paw Paw” who did a jump for his 88th birthday!

Sunday we hosted MTSU’s annual tandem skydiving trip. This group led by our fun jumper, Connor Shepard, always has a great time. Fun jumpers were out from all over doing freefly and tracking jumps. Check out this video of some of the good times.

Music City Skydiving is Nashville's premier skydiving center with a 10,000 sq ft facility and a Super King Air. World class hospitality!

More great random fun jumper videos at Music City Skydiving. MCS will be open, weather permitting, until December 18th. We hope to see everyone out here as much as possible before the winter shutdown.

Nashville, Tennessee's best skydiving is only an hour away at Music City Skydiving in Waverly. Tandem, AFF, and licensed jumpers love our facility and fast aircraft.

AFF Grads and A License holders at MCS!

Check out our newest AFF graduate, Jen Brooks, and our latest A licensee, Ellen Pulford! MCS has had quite a few new jumpers lately and are working hard each weekend to get more AFF’s through the program.

Formation skydiving weekend a success!

Awesome Formation Weekend with Scott Franklin

July 9-10

We had a great weekend of weather July 9/10 despite really horrible forecasts. The King Air was enroute from maintenance Saturday morning carrying our weekend’s entertainment host, Scott Franklin. Scott is a former gold and silver medalist at the USPA Nationals in 8 way and 16 way and currently the formation organizer at Skydive Atlanta. The plane arrived around 9 a.m. and Scott wasted no time getting to work with the participant students.

8 way July 9Scott began with a lecture on the fundamentals of formation skydiving. During this he corrected many of the myths and misnomers we are taught as young jumpers. He outlined the goals and strategies for successful dives and how they were going to achieve them and then they got to work.

A lot of fantastic dives were completed and with only a few weather holds for passing storms we were relatively unimpeded jumping throughout the weekend.

Thanks to everyone that came out and participated! Scott regularly holds 4 way camps and invitationals at Skydive Atlanta, in Thomaston, GA and will be organizing July 23-24 at the Summer Boogie.

Music City Skydiving is #1 in Tennessee for fun, whether formation skydiving or tandem skydiving.

Skydiving in Nashville covered by TV at MCS

The show, Tennessee Crossroads, covers tourism and outdoor activities all around Tennessee. The visit from the show was arranged by Humphreys County Tourism Consultant, Karin Davis, who is working hard to highlight tourism activities in Humphreys County. Show producer, Taylor Walters, and her amazing crew arrived early and shot all around the DZ before the jump on the first load of the day. The morning had perfect weather and light winds. The host’s tandem jump went off without a hitch and left him grasping for words to describe his experience. Music City Skydiving DZ manager, Taylor Smith, was interviewed by the TV show after a jump with the host and several other show members/crew. The show is scheduled to air between November of this year and February of 2017.

The rest of MCS’s opening weekend was not quite as smooth with high winds preventing much jumping for most of Saturday, even causing an off site landing for most of one load. All the same, we had many of our regular faces back in the air over Waverly. It looks like it’s going to be a great season!
