Skydive Finger Lakes is still fighting for their right to operate at the Ovid Airport

We are still in a legal battle to continue our 20 year lease at the Ovid Airport. Unfortunately the justice system works slowly, even when the law is clearly on your side. We hope to resume operations as soon as possible.
