Why Choose Skydive Spaceland?

At Skydive Spaceland, we want you to have the best skydiving experience possible! We’re one of the largest skydiving centers in the world with a purpose-built, private airfield and top-of-the-line everything to ensure you have a safe, exciting, comfortable skydiving experience. Not all drop zones can deliver the same top-quality experience we can, so we’ve put together a comparison of Skydive Spaceland vs. a typical small drop zone below to help you make the best choice when you select your skydiving center.

Large, flat, open airfield with tons of landing area and covered packing space. Shared municipal airport with other aircraft operations competing for space and often a small, unlevel landing area.
Open 7 days a week, able to handle up to 100 first-time jumpers in a day (large groups are welcome!) Days/hours often limited, often fewer than 20 people can make their first jump in a day.
Multiple top-quality turbine aircraft capable of handling many skydivers per flight. Smaller aircraft with limited lift capacity (less people can jump per day)
Large facility offering all the amenities:

  • Covered spectator area
  • Flushing toilets
  • Large, covered packing hangar
  • Lockers for gear storage
  • Vending machines for drinks and snacks
Small aircraft hangar/outbuilding, often without running water, flushing toilets, or air conditioning
State-of-the-art skydiving equipment for tandem skydiving, individual instruction, and gear rental Older skydiving gear that may not have all of the latest safety features
Modern, complete Skydiver Training Program that takes you all the way to your basic skydiving license with free video on every skydive. You will achieve your A license at a lower total cost than many skydiving centers. Traditional Accelerated Freefall training program developed in the 1980s that includes fewer traning jumps and initially requires two instructors and a higher cost per jump. Video costs extra. Upon completion of this program, you will still be up to 15 jumps away from your basic skydiving license.
