The best skydiving near you!
Welcome to the best midwest skydiving facility! Glidersports Skydiving is here to offer Missouri something it’s never seen before: the best location, the most dedicated and experienced staff, and the newest and fastest fleet of performance aircraft in the region…seven days a week by appointment. If you live in Kansas City, Springfield, Joplin, Lake of the Ozarks, Jefferson City or the Columbia areas we are the best skydiving near you. Once you’ve jumped with us, you will want to keep coming back!
Whether you’re a seasoned belly flier, a wingsuit pilot looking for a flock, or a wind tunnel trained shredder, we have what you need! At Glidersports Skydiving, we’re dedicated to safety and performance – and we believe that neither should compromise the other.
Our Landing Area!
With private 50 acres to play and land on, you wont find a better place to come and relax.
USPA pro rating pea pit, landing area that goes on for over 2,000 feet, all mowed & smooth as your front yard.
We pride ourselves on providing the best landing area for you and your gear.
Climed Controlled Packing!
Are you tired of dripping sweat when you are packing? How about not feeling your fingers. When we are open the AC or the Heat is a rocking. Get more skydives in each day..
From minor to major items we can take care of all your rigging needs. On site same day repacks are available. If you need one of our team members to take a look at your gear, all you need to do is ask.
At Glidersports Skydiving you will find nothing but the best in aircraft. We fly the newest, safest, and fastest planes in the region.
No other aircraft in the area can boast the safety, efficiency, and comfort of this rockstar of a plane. Not to mention the largest door you will find south of Chicago or north of Texas. What makes a Beech 99 better than what else is out there? The Beech 99 boasts 1,360 horse power. This means we can get you and up to 17 other friends in the air faster, higher, and at a lower cost.
The newest addition to our fleet is still being prepared to meet Glidersports standards. Our Cessna 206 will feature all the above average standards that you are used to with our planes. More space then the 182 but lower minimums then the Beech 99 means more jumps! This is a utility model with a roll-up door.
