Experienced Skydiving Features
When is a dropzone not just a dropzone?
When it’s Glidersports of course! Glidersports is all about the experienced skydiver who wants more.
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, 365 days a year! 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.
Fun in the air and on the ground!
There are hotels in town, but we know you’d rather stay on the property. We have a bunkhouse with reasonable rates and no charge camping. If you have an RV you can even purchase a slot, and make a vacation home here. The best perk to staying on property? First load in the morning!
Family, Kids, Pets
Skydiving was built around the bonfire. This is the best place to learn and ask questions in a low-pressure environment. It’s where your instructors and coaches become your best friends. GliderSports is known for the most epic bonfires in the midwest.
Nothing brings skydivers together better than food! We love to cook out, and we have plenty of grills to facilitate a good get together. We’ve also been known to take over entire sections of local restaurants
We're Centrally Located
GliderSports is located in close proximity to Kansas City, Springfield, Joplin, Lake of the Ozarks, Jefferson City and Columbia. We even have regulars come over from the St. Louis area!
We’re located just over an hour south of Kansas City, three miles from historic Clinton, Missouri.
The views from altitude are the most breathtaking in Missouri (and the midwest.) Overlooking the beautiful Truman Reservoir, the sunsets are even better! Anyone for a sunset high pull?
Nestled in Missouri’s golden valley, Clinton is considered the gateway to Truman Reservoir. There’s plenty to do in the area aside from just skydive. If you’ve ever been stuck at a middle of nowhere dropzone on weather hold, you know how important this is.
Truman Resiviour and Lake of the Ozarks are right next to us. Bring a boat, jet skis, fishing rod and/or swimsuit. You can even stay on property to use our hoverboard or flyboard.
The Katy Trail starts in Clinton, as well as being a great destination for motorcycle rides from Kansas City. There’s also Truman Lake mountain bike park and Cooper Creek ATV area right next door. Plenty of action for before or after your skydive!
Gas, food, lodging, shops… all within three minutes. Clinton, Missouri is known for antique and craft shopping, as well the historic downtown district, and the Henry County Museum. There are also basic amenities like Walmart and Starbucks.
