Goshen, Indiana has had several DZs come and go over the years. The first one I'm aware of was run by Don Sprandel in Goshen "for a few years ending in 1982. I made my first two jumps there on 8-28-82 and 9-4-82, static line jumps on T-10 canopies.

Charlie Andrews ran Skydive Goshen for a decade or so starting in 1992. It was my home dropzone all through the 90s and I made hundreds of jumps there.

Bo and Paula Coody operated the Indiana Skydiving Academy at Goshen for several years during the 2000s.
