Have some fun, jump out of a plane!


If you live for adventure, you just have to try skydiving. There’s no way around it. The sky is calling to you, and you’re going to answer one of these days. Here’s an idea: just show up, and leave the rest to us. Seriously, we’ll do all the hard stuff. All you have to do is get to the drop zone and be prepared for the time of your life.

On the day of your jump, get to the drop zone a little early to get the lay of the land. That’s where your friends and family will be waiting when you finish your dive. After that, you’ll meet your instructor and stay for a short briefing. You’ll put on your gear, we’ll get you on the plane, and we’ll get you up to elevation—we’re talking 14,000 feet. Your instructor will attach him/herself to you, and then you’re free to jump. And we’re talking THE best view of your life.

Are you worried about safety? Don’t be. Our instructors are FAA and USPA certified and trained. Our gear comes with four attachment points so there’s no way you’re getting disconnected. Our chutes come in threes—a main chute, a drogue chute, and an emergency chute. Our equipment comes with Automatic Activation Devices, just in case. So you’re covered. From the ground, to the sky, back to the ground, we’re your partners all the way. The sky is calling—so answer!

Our Drop Zones

Simply put, our drop zones are awesome! They’re the perfect place for your friends and family to wait and watch while you make the big jump, and the perfect place for you all to celebrate afterwards. Our drop zones have comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, and many have picnic areas and places to grab a bite to eat or drink. Now, we have a lot of locations, and each drop zone has something that makes it unique, so if you want to know specifics, feel free to ask when you make your reservation.

Other Services

Before your guests arrive at the drop zone, let them know that they can bring cameras or other recording equipment to get those amazing action shots of you. If you’re not willing to settle for far-off shots, good for you! Don’t worry, we have you covered. We offer videography services by dedicated, skilled pros, and multiple packages that fit any budget.
If you know someone who would love skydiving as much as you, we have gift certificates. If you feel like skydiving solo is in your future, we can help you with that, too. But more on that later…

The Sport of Skydiving

Once you’ve made a tandem jump with a trained instructor at your back, you realize that skydiving is a hell of a lot more than just jumping from a plane. For starters, every jump is different—even if you just jumped in one place for your entire life, you’d get something new out of it every time. For another thing, the human body can fall in so many ways. Different techniques exist that can either speed up your descent or slow it WAY down. Different maneuvers, suits, and tools exist that can change the very nature of the way you drop.

We’re talking techniques like swooping, which lets you hold off the landing as long as possible, gliding just inches from the ground. We’re talking competitions like speed skydiving, which is arguably the most thrilling sport on earth. We’re talking apparel like wingsuits, which enable you to glide so far and so fast that it feels like you’re flying. There are so many more ways to enjoy skydiving, and we encourage you to check them out. But the first step is the biggest, and that starts with you going on your first tandem skydive.

Jump with us! Reserve your skydive today by calling 937-558-7230!


Solo Parachuting Academy in Dayton, OH - Dayton Parachuting

Our skydiving academies teach you the right way


If you feel the urge to get out there and start jumping on your own, you’ll have to go back to school. Don’t worry—this school is for badasses only. Our skydiving academies teach courses at the right pace for you, using either Advanced Free Fall techniques (AFF) or Static Line Progression (S/L). Our Federal Aviation Administration-certified instructors will make sure you learn the skills that will get you your A license, as well as making sure you get plenty of practice under your belt.

AFF is an accelerated course, designed to get you into the air and jumping on your own, FAST. In AFF, you follow a seven-step format, which ensures that you know the basics of altitude awareness, body position, and equipment familiarity first. At step three, you’re jumping solo. Your instructor will be jumping with you, to make sure nothing goes wrong, but yeah, you’re on your own. Steps 4-7 get more advanced, such as maneuvering, docking with others, and performing “Superman” exits from the plane.

S/L Progression is super thorough, and depending on your personality type, it may just be what you want. In this system, you get a lot of up-front instruction until we’re sure you have it. Then you’re up in the air, with a static line pulling the ripcord automatically as you exit the plane for the first few jumps. When you’ve grasped the fundamentals, THEN you start doing it on your own, going higher and jumping longer until you’ve mastered the concepts. After each program, you go through what’s known as ISP (Integrated Student Program), in which you continue to practice solo jumping until you get to 25 solo jumps. At that point, you can apply for an A license, which lets you jump on your own wherever you want.

What does it take to be a skydiver?

When you jump out of a plane and go into the standard belly-to-ground position, you’re traveling at about 120 miles per hour. Depending on your body positions, once you’re experienced, you can travel a hell of a lot faster. What kind of person does this? A badass, in general. You, in particular.

The people who go to skydiving school might not look like professional thrill-seekers—they may look like your grandma, for all we know. But the way they look isn’t important—it’s what’s in their hearts. And that, my friend, is a solid steel core of bravery. You might be considering skydiving school because you want to enter competitions at the highest level. Maybe you know how much skydiving can change a person for the better, and you want to teach other people and see that same change in them. Maybe you want to do some of the bravest jobs possible, like fighting fires by jumping directly into them, or jumping into out-of-the-way places and saving stranded people. Maybe you’re in it for the sheer thrill of it. Whatever your reasons, you’re becoming part of an elite group. It’s an accomplishment you can be proud of.

The Best Gift in the World?


We think so! Honestly, for the right person in your life—the person who’s been on a few jumps and has the skydiving itch, or the person who wants to go and hasn’t worked up the courage yet—a gift certificate is the best gift you can give. If you’re not convinced yet, consider that our gift certificates are transferable among all our many locations. They’re also transferable between individuals, if by some fluke you guessed wrong about the kind of person you were giving it to.

Even better, our certificates are good for two full years after purchase, which means your friend can wait for the perfect day, or wait to build up his or her courage. Consider also what a gift certificate means—skydiving is the perfect way to mark a birthday, an anniversary, or another important life event, and the person you’re giving it to will know that you took the time and thought of what would be the best way to commemorate it. Finally, our gift certificates are easy to purchase. Our representatives are available seven days a week, and they’re friendly as heck.

Parachuting.com Dayton Videos and Imagery

The Perfect Way to Record your Day


Especially if you’re a beginning skydiver, you’ll want to have a permanent record of your jump. Our imagery packages do that for you, giving you a day you’ll never forget. Our GoPro/Handycam option is great for all your up-close moments. The instructor-worn equipment records all your screams, curses, and laughs of amazement. If you want to go deluxe, you’ll want a camera flyer to go with you. This package costs a bit more than the GoPro, but it’s competitively priced, and totally worth it. The camera flyer records you before flight, getting your thoughts as you prepare for your big jump, they record you in the plane, and they jump with you, exiting slightly before you so they can get the perfect angle for recording your epic trip down to earth. When you come down, the camera flyer will already be there to capture your landing, and the ensuing celebration. Then they’ll edit the video, with music, in typically less than an hour. This is an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life, and you’ll be happy you chose a professional camera flyer to go with you.

The Camera Flyer


Your camera flyer is a person of many passions, or at least two. We know this because they’ve combined their passion for videography with their passion for jumping out of planes, all so you can reap the benefits. It takes a lot of work to become a camera flyer. First, you need a lot of jumps under your belt, because you have to be experienced enough to not get distracted, and to have great situational awareness. Your camera flyer has at least a C license, which means, in short that they have a ton of jumps in. That means they’ll be focused on you, and staying safe, and they won’t be getting distracted.

They also have the best equipment, like cameras with small, sturdy construction and wide-angle lenses that fit on their helmets easily. This equipment doesn’t come cheap. All of these things point to a few of your camera flyer’s character traits: your camera flyer is rave, of course. He’s also disciplined, focused, and committed. Basically, your camera flyer is a pro in every way. So when it comes to your big day, you know you’re getting the best shots of your experience.

Our videography packages capture your big day!
