When Can I Schedule A Jump?
Our schedule changes with the changing seasons. Full details on current availability can be found on our Reservations page.
What About Weather?
Skydiving, like all aviation activities, is an extremely weather-dependent sport. Wind, clouds, precipitation, and storm activity all have an impact on determining whether or not it is safe to jump. In the event of inclement weather, we will attempt to notify you of weather cancellations prior to your arriving at the Dropzone. If weather conditions change after you arrive and you are unable to jump on your scheduled day, we will issue you a raincheck that can be redeemed at a future date of your choosing.
What Time Should I Arrive?
You should plan to arrive at the Dropzone approximately 15-30 minutes before your scheduled jump time. This allows us to complete any missing paperwork or registration information before your jump.
How Long Will I Be There?
The duration of your stay varies greatly, based on weather conditions, aircraft performance, and other factors. The actual jump, including training, the flight to altitude, the skydive, and any debriefing will take approximately one hour. Because of the uncertainties inherent in skydiving, it is impossible to guarantee specific time slots. We make every effort to minimze wait times, but it is likely that there will be a waiting period between your arrival time and your jump. Plan to spend a total of 3-4 hours on the Dropzone. The best way to avoid waiting is to schedule your skydive as early as possible in the day, as delays tend to accumulate.
Can I Bring Guests/Spectators/Kids/Family/Pets?
Guests and spectators are welcome. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult who is not jumping. Pets must remain leashed at all times. There is a small picnic area for spectators.
Can I Bring Alcoholic Beverages?
The consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited while jump operations are in progress, per FAA regulations. After the last load of skydivers takes off at the end of the day, alcohol is permitted.
How Do I Get Certified to Jump on My Own?
The training program to becoming a licensed skydiver is called Accelerated FreeFall, or AFF. Details about that program, including pricing and links to registration, can be found on the AFF Page.
