What makes GliderSports the most premiere skydiving center around?
Aircraft, Our flagship 2001 Supervan 900. This is the newest, safest and fastest aircraft around by far. While other skydiving centers flagship aircraft are made in the 60s and 70s older than your car, GliderSports has spared no expense when it comes to our aircraft and gear used for your skydive.
We are also the largest private facility, With a 50 acres playground, there is lots to do.
We limit the number of people each day and at each time. This allows us to show each customer a more personal experience. Every jumper will receive there own skydiving certificate and official logbook entry. This is great to hang on your wall, but be sure to keep it as every jump counts towards your skydiving license if you decide to keep going.
