Aircraft

At GliderSports you will find nothing but the best in aircraft.  We fly the newest, safest and fastest aircraft in the region.  Any way you want to gauge it we have the safest fleet around.

 

Our Flag Ship aircraft, 2001 Cessna “SuperVan 900” Caravan

 

No other aircraft in the area can boast the safety, efficiency, and comfort of this pearl of a plane.  Not to mention the largest door you will find south of Chicago or north of Texas.  Why get cramped in a 182 or king air door when you can come fit a sheet of plywood out of our door.  Ask the indrustry leaders in skydiving nothing beats a Caravan, let alone a Supervan 900!

 

What makes a Supervan 900 better than a standard Caravan?  Well a Std Caravan only has 625 HP P&W.  The Supervan 900 replaces this P&W engine with a direct drive Honeywell Garrett 1000HP engine de-rated to 900.  This means most days this monster holds 900 HP to over 8,000 Feet.  Most aircraft start loosing power from the moment they take off.  What this means to you?  It means you will get to your skydive faster, climb higher, all while offering the best prices in the region.

Our Super STOL 182, the fastest, nicest, most outfitted 182 skydiving has ever seen.

We always want to fly the Supervan 900 but when we don’t this is a close 2nd best.  2 inches of memory foam pad, climb mods, no expense was spared to make this the nicest 4 place jump plane around.

 

Our Cessna U-206 is coming soon.  When 19 body’s in the air at a time isn’t enough.  When you want 25!  It is currently going through the GliderSports rebuild, as most aircraft don’t meet our high standards.  As with all of our aircraft they must start with a brand new engine and so much more for the safety of our customers.
