  • The first jump is a Tandem Skydive on a parachute built for two people. The jump is made from 13,500′ weather permitting. You freefall to 6000′. You activate the ripcord (only if you want to) and then help your instructor fly the parachute back to the ground.

Credit cards are not charged when you are making your reservation. You will pay in full when you arrive for your skydive. If you fail to show and do not call us to cancel, we have the right to charge your credit card. If you do not have a major credit card then we require you to send your deposit via cash or money order.

  • We are open 7 days a week weather permitting and on an appointment basis. On weekends, we begin at 7:30am, on weekdays at 8:00am. We ask you to plan on spending your whole day at DZ but if the weather is not a problem, from the time you arrive to the time you are finished is usually about 4-5 hours. You must first watch a video that takes around 10 minutes and fill out about 10 minutes of paper work (both of which you can do below to save time), 15 to 20 minutes of ground training and then you are manifested on a load.

  • We are located in Lake Wales, Florida. Only 39 miles from Disney and the wind tunnel and Tampa 60 minutes.

  • Wear something that you don’t mind getting a little dirty and possibly a grass stain. Dress appropriately for the weather. Running shoes are recommended (no sandles, highheels or workboots).

  • DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE DROPZONE, NO EXCEPTIONS, please leave them at home. We also ask that if you are bringing children, that they are supervised at all times.

  • If you are concerned about the weather, please call us at 863-678-1003. If you get the voicemail, leave a message and we will call back as soon as possible.

  • If you want to continue your skydiving instruction we offer an AFF program. 

  • When comparing us to other Dropzones ask them:

    • what altitude do they go to (we fly to 13,500 weather permitting, lowest 9,000)
    • what type of aircraft (Turbine, single and multi engine capable of carrying up to 16-22 skydivers at a time)
    • do they try to get the student involved in pulling the ripcord and flying the parachute.

Save Time

You can save time by doing the paperwork and watching the video at home.
