Skydiving in Austin is Absolutely Awesome!
Austin is awesome. To say that it’s well-known for the eclectic live music scene would be a slight understatement. With over 250 live venues, it’s come to be known as the Live Music Capital of the World. There are tons of music, film, and food festivals—so there’s no shortage of cool and colorful nightlife.
The Colorado River runs through Austin and the cityscape is breathtaking. Home to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, there are 12.68 miles of trails that are great for hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking. Barton Creek also has great swimming holes to enjoy. Barton Creek is roughly 15 miles from downtown, so you can get exciting nightlife and serene nature in close vicinities. There’s absolutely nothing like skydiving over Austin. There’s just so much beauty to soak in, and so much to do once you land.
Get Yourself Acquainted and Take a Tandem Jump
A Tandem jump is the best way to take your introductory leap into skydiving. With a Tandem jump, you’ll dive while harnessed to an FAA-certified instructor. This way, you have a seasoned expert accompanying you every step of the way—giving you the freedom to enjoy the views at 14,000 feet above ground level while your instructor takes care of everything else.
It’s important to arrive at the drop zone earlier than the scheduled time of your jump. You’ll want to familiarize yourself with the facilities, and get to know your instructor before you dive into instruction. Safety is important to us, so your instructor will thoroughly cover all safety features and procedures. All that’s left to do is gear up.
You’ll board the aircraft with your instructor and get harnessed together. Then, at 10,000 feet or above, jump! You’ll experience roughly 30 seconds of free fall and reach speeds of up to 120 mph. The parachute deploys at roughly 5,500-6,000 feet. Then the dive slows down and you enjoy roughly 6 minutes of serenely floating down to earth.
- Passenger harness that can be attached at 4 points consisting of 2 on the shoulders and 2 on the hips.
- Main parachute
- Drogue chute which is designed to handle the weight of 2 people.
- Reserve chute
- Automatic Activation Device: for monitoring speed and altitude, allowing the reserve chute to be deployed in case of any problems.
Get Both Crazy and Comfortable
Skydiving is most certainly an extreme experience, but we want to provide a comfortable atmosphere that’s both riveting and relaxing. Our drop zones include comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. This way, everyone can enjoy a nice place to rest and relax while any member of your party is riding high in the sky. Some locations offer food and drinks for purchase. Why not tackle two activities at once and go on a picnic that’s accompanied by a thrilling and life-changing experience? Check out our drop zones! Location specifics apply, so make sure to inquire about any amenities before you arrive.
Fun is as Limitless as the Sky
We offer you much more than the dive itself. We provide fun for everyone and put you on the path to professional skydiving. When you dive, we give you the chance to have a videographer jump with you and capture your experience in the most exciting and mind-blowing form possible. Gift certificates can also be purchased so that the wild ride can be shared with anyone.
And of course, we know that there are those of you who will want to take your skydiving skills to the next level to become a pro. If you want to become a professional skydiver, then we can put you on a career path that allows you the possibility to always be yourself and love what you do.

Keep Moving Up. Get Certified to Dive
Are you ready to fly higher and get certified? If so, we offer a number of skydiving training courses. If you want to dive solo or professionally, then you should utilize one of our training options. You’ll work with FAA-certified instructors. You move at your own pace, and every aspect of skydiving will be covered.
Accelerated Free Fall (AFF)
AFF training consists of 7 steps. It’s an accelerated method because you begin solo diving at a more rapid pace than other training methods.
First Free Fall
You’ll jump from 10,000 to 12,000 feet above ground level. Two instructors will accompany you, holding your harness. When it’s time, your instructors will let go and you’ll deploy the parachute at 4,000 to 6,000 feet. You’ll experience 50 seconds or more of free fall.
Teach altitude awareness, body position, stability, pull sequence, and chute deployment. At step 3 you jump on your own.
Cover the areas of ‘in-air skills’, turns, forward movement, docking, and performing ‘Superman’ exits.
Static Line Progression (S/L)
When making a Static jump, you’ll dive from 3,000 feet with a static line, which attaches your equipment to the aircraft. The line tightens as soon as you jump, which subsequently deploys your canopy. You’ll experience 2-3 minutes of free fall.
S/L Training Process
Four to five hours of ground instruction are needed before your first Static Line (S/L) jump. At least 15 additional minutes of ground instruction are required for every jump following your first.
After two jumps, you’ll learn to deploy the chute via the ripcord yourself. During your following three jumps, you’ll demonstrate your ability to effectively pull your own ripcord, using a ‘dummy’ ripcord. Your next jump will be a free fall on your own. Then you’ll perform a ‘clear and pull’ jump, where you initiate the pull sequence upon immediately leaving the aircraft. Your next dive will be a ’10-second delay’ jump. After 25 dives, you’ll qualify for an A license and you’re free to jump on your own.

Give Someone an Unforgettable Experience!
Why not give a gift your loved one will never forget? We offer gift certificates for Tandem jumps or AFF Level 1 jumps. If you know someone who’s been craving a skydive, or anyone who appreciates a life-changing experience, then one of our gift certificates is the ideal choice for showing that special thrill-seeker that you care. Our gift certificates are perfect for any occasion, whether it be a birthday, an anniversary, graduation, or just for the fun of it.
Our gift certificates are valid for up to two years, and are transferable between persons and locations (though small fees may apply). It takes a lot of courage to jump out of a plane from 12,000 feet in the air, and we realize that some people need to take a little time to prepare before taking the leap. Our gift certificates can be purchased by contacting our friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives who are available to answer questions you have 7 days a week. Two of the greatest experiences possible are skydiving and the incredible warmth of all forms of love. Why not combine the two and share the joys of skydiving with someone you love?

Capture the Experience on Video Record!
In addition to your dive, we offer two video packages so that you can relive the insanely amazing moments over and over.
With our GroPro option, your instructor will be equipped with a GoPro camera to record your amazing experience, which gives a closer look into your adventure.
The videography service is a bit pricier than the GoPro path but it’s totally worth it. You’ll be accompanied by a professional videographer, who will capture every exciting step of your skydiving journey. Your thoughts before your ascent will be recorded, as will your thoughts right before you take the leap and right after you land. The videographer will leave the plane before you for the perfect view, and will land before you so as to capture a great shot of you while you make your landing. This allows for the most immersive look into your transcendental experience.
Your video will be edited to music on site, which typically takes about an hour. You’ll be given a CD with the edited version of your epic leap, along with still photos. This way you can upload your video to your favorite social media platforms and show everyone what a radical thrill-seeker you are.
Camera Flying is Both Creative and Crazy
Being a camera flyer is the best way to combine your skydiving skills and love of thrills with your creative side. Just like any artist, it takes tremendous talent to be a camera flyer. Not only do you have to possess topnotch skydiving skills, but the art requires that you use your skills to capture the exhilaration at the most innovative and inventive angles.
The ability to work with the sky is tantamount to expressing yourself in such a unique and original way. You have to understand to let your body and the skies work as two forces that feed off one another to become one. The ways in which a camera flyer must learn to use the body is much like that of a dancer. It takes both great delicacy and control to capture the quintessential emotion.
As a sport, skydiving is both breathtaking and elegant. The same can be said for the art of camera flying. It takes more than flailing around at incredible heights. Camera flying requires precision, nimbleness, and a refined eye. But of course, a passion for the experience of skydiving is a must for appreciating the essence of the exquisite art of camera flying.
