Safety is our top priority and our record shows it. Not all skydiving schools are the same and our tandem skydiving safety record is incomparable since we started our tandem skydiving lessons in 1984. No other New York, NJ or Pennsylvania skydiving school can match it. This does not mean that you can’t get hurt, but we will not sacrifice safety to look cool. All instructors, pilots and riggers are appropriately licensed and certified through the appropriate agency to the highest level, the FAA or U.S. Parachute Association and focused on your safety. Our jump aircraft, two Super Cessna 210-5, are meticulously maintained and are recognized as the safest in the industry. We are located in a low air traffic area and have a mile long, easy to spot and obstacle free landing zone.
Our Pennsylvania Skydiving Center is located in the foothills of the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. The views from altitude are breathtaking, and are an easy drive from New York and NJ straight out Interstate 80.
