For licensed skydivers, we have grass strip runway with a great landing area. We welcome all disciplines, including classic accuracy, wing suits, crew, and relative work.
We start at 10AM, and welcome "walk ins".
We offer two different video / picture options. This is an example of what handcam (or others refer to as personal perspective) pictures would look like. The camera is worn and operated by your tandem skydive instructor.
We also offer the option to have both handcam and outside video done by arrangement. You don't need to make your choice today, we can add this at the time of your jump.
Outside perspective video
These are pictures taken from a videographer that will jump along side of you during freefall. We capture video and pictures of your freefall. This will also include pictures prior to takeoff, and your landing.
