Our Aircraft’s

first is our Cessna 195

Working off the long standing experience of Cessna 195 restorations, we continued that legacy into the skydive operations. This particular aircraft boasts a 330 HP powerplant, propelling it to 12,000 ft in 25 minutes with four jumpers aboard. Feel and hear the power! Here is your chance to jump out of this classic!

next is our Cessna 172

next is our Cessna 172

For a more traditional skydiving feel, the Cessna 172 stands in with a top hinged door and wheel step, perfect for sport jumpers and the beloved “hop and pop.” You may also see this little workhorse out towing gliders on your jump day!

Most often we fly our Cessna 182 (picture coming soon)

The Cessna 182 also has the more traditional skydive feel to it and stands in with a top hinged door and wheel step, perfect for sport jumpers and, once again, for that beloved “hop and pop” and brings all the thrill needed for four sport jumpers to take a High Dive from 12,000 feet. Although this isn’t a large aircraft 12,000 feet doesn’t take as long to reach when riding in the 182.
