What Do I Wear?

You will be outside in the elements, with weather delays that could be for several hours! Please wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the season. Goggles will be provided, and we do have special goggles that fit over glasses.

Shoes: Tennis, running or skate shoes. No heels, sandals, or shoes with hooks or boots.

Cold weather: We recommend bringing gloves and dressing in several layers - Under Armour or Long Johns work great!.

Hot weather: Short shorts and low cut tops can pose problems if you plan to have your experience captured on film. Shorts may also catch you a bright red raspberry on your legs if you have a slide in landing! Many girls choose to wear stretch pants/yoga pants in the summer months or capris. Knee length shorts and a short sleeve tee are the best clothing items for everyone.

Weekend: 3-5+ hours

Please show up 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to get a head start on paperwork. Showing up on time is very important for keeping things moving smoothly and getting you in the air. We appreciate your consideration of others with later appointments by being punctual.

We are the busiest during the weekend and are at the mercy of the weather. Always prepare for the possibility of weather delays.

Many ask us for a specific time for their skydive. We will give you our best estimate as there are many safety factors and considerations that go into make a skydive. For your safety and ours we are only going to go as fast as we need to in order to be safe. Remember, we are jumping out of an airplane, and safety is our priority!

what about weather?

Skydivers are at the mercy of the weather. Inclement weather can impair skydiving for an hour, several hours, or sometimes even the entire day. Strong, gusty winds can be a factor as well as cloud coverage, rain or extreme temperatures. Weather forecasts are only forecasts, so we have to wait until the day and time of your appointment to see what the weather will bring.

We are not weather experts. We can only read weather forecasts and make predictions viewing the same information as everyone else.

We will get the latest updated forecast the morning of your jump. If it looks like it is not good, we will call you. If you think it is not going to be good weather and haven't heard from us, please call before you leave your house.

If we are skydiving and have to stop due to weather and we go on a weather hold, we make these decisions based on safety considerations. We will give you our best estimate of how long the hold will be. Again, we can't control the weather and we are giving you our best guess. Believe us, we want to skydive as much as you do, but safety is our first priority. You can elect to wait it out or you can reschedule to a different date.

what about spectators?

Friends and family are welcome to come watch. They need to bring their own lawn chairs, umbrellas, blankets, etc.

If you have small children please keep in mind that you will be outside in the elements for several hours without heat or air conditioning. Long, hot days can be difficult for children. Unexpected weather delays can often catch our customers off guard when bringing out young children. Please keep your children safe by staying within the observation area!

Please leave your pets at home! Animals are not allowed in the building and must be leashed at all times.

Please show up 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to get a head start on paperwork. Showing up on time is very important for keeping things moving smoothly  and getting you in the air. We appreciate your consideration of others with later appointments by being punctual.

No. No exceptions. The United States Parachute Association requires anyone operating a camera in freefall to be a licensed skydiver with a minimum of 200 skydives. It is unsafe for you as well as your instructor to bring a camera in freefall without proper training.
