Start Skydiving has larger and faster aircraft, state of the art equipment, sixty professional instructors, and better pricing! Why go anywhere else?
- Why jump from a plane that can only hold four passengers (two tandems), when you can jump from our aircraft that can hold over 20 jumpers?
- Why spend 30 minutes cramped in a small, loud piston plane, when you can spend 15 minutes in one of our large, fast turbine-engine aircraft?
- Why jump from 9,000 feet, when you can jump from as high as 14,000 feet MSL?
- Why pay more and get less, when you can pay less and get so much more?!
