It’s a piece of cake to operate compared to other DZ software we have used, and the live manifest program is priceless, enabling me to check out my DZ operations while I’m on the road.

David Hughes, Skydive Santa Barbara


Ground Control has provided our centre with a very efficient and tailored manifest system, and the on going support is very prompt.

Peter Sizer, Skydive Headcorn


We are very happy at having made the move to Ground Control & now have a fully functioning effective integrated booking, manifest & accounting system.

We tried several manifest programs before deciding on Ground Control. It combines ease of use with a high level of customization; it's astounding and the personal level of support you receive is unmatched.
