Ultimate Skydiving Adventures boasts about being the biggest-little dropzone as it has a hanger that houses the administrative office called manifest, student training rooms for tandems and solo skydivers, a rigging room for parachute maintenance, indoor parachute packing, restrooms, and a cozy place to hang out. The dropzone also has a quaint space to watch the skydivers land so spectators (not pets) are welcome to watch, with ample amount of parking close by.
Skydiving welcomes an eclectic group of people and the team definitely embodies that! We are a group of passionate people who just love this sport, the people, and our work. Not only is this small, dedicated team stoked about what they do, between them they have a combined experience of over 50 years in the sport, and a jump total of 31,255+ (it keeps growing the more they jump)!! That’s so rare to have such experience on a small team like this! Here – let’s meet them!

Bri – Manifest Office
Bri was terrified to make her first skydive but was exhilarated after she landed. It took her a lot of courage to go up a second time, but after being around the dropzone, talking with other jumpers and watching so many jumps, she’s now racked up 5 tandem skydives and even says she’s starting to feel ready to go solo!
