Nothing Beats that Big Texas Sky!
San Antonio, Texas is a unique location because it proves why everything is bigger and better in Texas!

Get in Formation!
We’ve all seen the incredible video of multiple skydivers floating through the air, seemingly defying the laws of physics as they hold onto each other and perform complex maneuvers to form geometric patterns. But few people really understand the underlying mechanics of such a popular skydiving feat. Formation skydiving is an event where multiple skydivers attach themselves to each other by using their limbs or “grippers” attached to their jumpsuit, which allows them to manipulate their movement and create the wondrous images we’ve all grown accustomed to seeing. This is a highly competitive event that has numerous highly skilled skydivers performing in events worldwide.
There are two kinds of formations, called randoms and blocks. The randoms are singular formations with full separation of all grips both before and after building the formation. The blocks are double formations with a special designated movement pattern in between, called an inter. Depending on the particular movement, the initial formation may or may not be similar to the ending formation.
The current FAI world record for largest freefall formation is a 400-way, set on February 8, 2006. It was held for 4.25 seconds. The vaunted World Team used five separate airplanes and exited from an altitude of 25,000 feet. In April 2013 The World Team tried to break the record for the largest 2-point formation dive in skydiving history. All 222 members came together and made a formation, broke apart, and then reformed to make a completely different formation. However, the legendary record remains unbroken, and stands as the peak of formation skydiving.

Spread Your Wings and Conquer the Skies on Your Own
Have you had your first taste of skydiving, and are now eager to increase your freedom by taking on the skies by yourself? If so, our Accelerated Free Fall or Static Line Progression programs are are the perfect fit for you! Our accredited skydiving school can put you on track to receive an official certification from the United States Parachute Association, and with this USPA license, you leap into the sky without an instructor on your back. Parachuting.com San Antonio has long been an industry leader in skydiving training, hiring the best trained instructors who have countless hours logged moving through the skies; as well as the USPA certification to teach you how to get there yourself!
If you want to expedite your education process, an Accelerated Free Fall course is the option that will meet your needs. This expedites your free fall training, allowing you to complete it in a shorter amount of time; though all of the seven steps required to complete training will be closely monitored and supervised by one of our trained instructors. But be rest assured, your instructor will make sure you are as prepared as possible, no matter the speed of the training, and you will not be sent up into the air without at least seven hours of on the ground training and three or more practice jumps.
The Static Line Progression program is our alternative program, and requires a bit more time and training. The process is clear and concise. It begins with a jump commenced at 3,000 feet AGL where the student executes a suspended exit from the plane. As the student skydiver falls away from the aircraft, a Static Line, which is affixed to the aircraft, will deploy, keeping the skydiver securely suspended. This will simulate a skydiving experience over a two to three minute period, and will provide an appropriate means of preparation for a solo adventure.
Vigilance in the Face of Danger
Paratroopers are staples of cinematic depictions of warfare, but their true grit and skill is still somewhat unheralded. These flight professionals are shining examples of the invaluable role skydiving skills can play in real life. Though not implemented as often as they were at the start of the great world wars, paratroopers are still valued members of the military apparatus.
Even with the heightened use of drones, paratroopers can still be used for tactical advantage as they can be inserted into the battlefield from the air, which allows them to take up position in areas that may not be accessible by any other means. They jump out of airplanes using their parachutes to land safely on the ground. It is one of the three types of “forced entry” strategic techniques for entering a theater of war; the other two being by land or by sea. This allows them to enter battlefields from any location and is vital in situations where fortificants have been put in place to prevent an attack. This proves to be a tactical advantage as opposing forces are often forced to spread their defense in the event a paratrooper tries to compromise an otherwise safe geographical stronghold. Another common use for paratroopers is to establish an airhead for landing other units.

Though every skydive is an wondrous expedition unto itself, immortalizing the experience so that it can be relived forever is a vital part of the entire thrill. There’s nothing like the priceless reaction that can be captured live, your face flush with the exhilaration and joy of flight. Capturing this precious moment should be placed in the same trusted hands in which you entrust your safety.
Training to being a certified instructor allows those trusted hands to be yours, and you can play the indispensable role of cameraman for an endless wave of customers. There are a number of commercial opportunities available with this skill, and it is one of the more lucrative ways in which to use your certified license. Not only do you need to educate yourself on the technology and equipment best suited for this particular endeavor, this feat requires a vast combination of specialized talents: from being able to control the camera while in flight, to being able to anticipate and compose shots so that the footage is as cinematic as possible. Every step of the experience needs to be captured by a highly trainer cameraman so that it can be properly immortalized.
