Why People Choose Us In Philadelphia


Our first priority is the thing that’s on the top of anyone’s mind who decides to make a tandem skydive: safety.

As one of the largest skydiving centers in the Northeast, we make more than 20,000 jumps every year. Our entire staff is USPA-certified and highly-experienced, from our skydiving instructors and pilots to our parachute packers and videographers.

Additionally, all of our aircraft and skydiving gear are routinely inspected and maintained.


Philadelphia skydiving of course takes place in the sky, but a lot of your experience will take place on the ground. Having the best end-to-end experience means world-class, comfortable facilities and exciting guest opportunities.

Dropzone amenities include an observation deck to watch landing skydivers, a gift shop, food trucks on the weekends, and free WiFi. We also welcome birthday parties, corporate events, summer camps, and marriage proposals.

Our two Cessna Super Grand Caravans hold 17 people each and carry jumpers to an altitude of 13,500 feet faster than you can say, “let’s skydive!” That’s a comfy ride to a full 60 seconds of freefall over the City of Brotherly Love!

Skydiving is about more than the jump, and we promise to give you a day you’ll never forget. But don’t take it from us – check out what our happy customers say! We have more reviews on Google than any other skydiving center in the US.
