what you need to know

Before you strap in and board the plane, here are a few things you might want to take into consideration.
Physical Fitness

It’s important to be in good physical shape beforehand. Skydiving requires a certain level of physical fitness, so it is best to consult with your healthcare provider if you have any concerns.

Be Prepared to commit.

Students should be prepared to commit to the time and effort needed to complete the course. It is required that you jump once every 30 days minimum and its preferred to jump more frequently to keep sharp.

Fear of Heights

Thirteen thousand feet above the ground is no joke, so be ready for this adventure. It doesnt feel like a roller-coaster or standing on a tall building though. Thanks to “relative wind” there is no feeling of weightlessness. Everything is so far away, it is completely surreal.

Safety Protocols
We implement safety protocols and guidelines that must be followed. Failure to do so may result in the inability to complete the course.
Check the Weather

While we typically are not open during unjumpable weather conditions, it is always best to be prepared for a range of elements, as skydiving is an outdoor activity.

Know the risks
It is best for all participants to understand that skydiving does carry some inherent risks. We want to provide a fun experience, but safety comes first! We cannot stress the importance of following our safety protocol enough.
