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:
||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.|
