Appalachian Amusement Center
Appalachian Amusement Center is the place to see skydiving professionals in action. It is the training ground of an extreme sport for advanced fliers who demonstrate a three dimensional blend of ballet and acrobatics. You don't have to be experienced to join in the fun. Itís not hard to learn, much easier than learning to snow ski or roller skate.  Itís great exercise, but never feels like work.
