Behind the scenes
Jean Sky Diving is based on the real world location of Jean Sport Aviation Center, a small airport utilized for recreational aviation such as gliding and skydiving in Jean, Nevada. The airport is located at the same highway interchange, with the exception of Interstate 15 meeting Nevada State Route 161 instead of Nevada State Route 160.

At the junction of the Long 15 and the road that winds into Goodsprings [4.05] are the remains of an old skydiving school, now overrun by a few Powder Gangers. The small plane still sits, slowly rusting into the ground. The nearest you can get to the skies is up on the roof, allowing views of the scrubland, and Bloatflies you can shoot. Inside the shack are the following items:
* Weapon Repair Kit
* Sunset Sarsaparilla Cap [56/100]"
