    What To Wear
    Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for weather conditions and closed toed shoes, sneakers are recommended. A jump suit will be provided as well as goggles, an altimeter and gloves if needed.

    For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to ensure they do their part to help prevent potential spread of COVID-19. They are cleaning common are surfaces in the aircraft between each flight, implementing additional hand washing and hand sanitizing stations, and establishing a new cleaning schedule and protocol for their facilities, air crafts, and equipment. Additionally, they are hoping to install touchless faucets and toilet values, as well as limit class sizes. Our partners kindly ask that all participants please bring and wear a mask inside the facility and aircraft, and honor the 6 feet of separation as much as possible. 

    Is it safe?
    Like any other extreme sport, there is inherent risk in skydiving. The experience provider is a United States Parachute Association Group Member Parachute Center as well as a certified training center. This means that all FAA rules are followed and only properly rated instructors, approved methods of training, properly maintained aircraft and parachute equipment will be used. No gear is older than three years old and all equipment is maintained by an FAA Master Rigger. They have trained over 100,000 first jump students since opening in 1960 and have a perfect student safety record.
    How old do you have to be to skydive?

    In the US, jumpers must be 18 years or older to skydive. 

    How much experience do skydiving instructors have?

    To become a skydiving instructor, a jumper must meet qualifications for a number of completed jumps, a number of years in the sport and go through an instructor training program. Tandem instructors must earn ratings from both the United States Parachute Association as well as the manufacturer of the gear they will be using to complete tandem jumps. 

    The experience provider does not hire anyone who simply meets the minimum qualifications. Their staff has years of experience, and must have a proven track record of safety and skill. Skydivers training to earn instructional ratings are mentored by their current staff long before they begin the process of becoming an instructor. They have many loyal staff members who return year after year. It speaks to their safety standards and professional business practices. They are able to recruit some of the best jumpers in the world. Their instructors have made thousands of jumps and received extensive training. Some members of their staff have made well over 15,000 skydives.

    Should I eat or drink before my experience?

    We suggest having a light meal before you jump. Most people who complain about feeling sick also admit to jumping on an empty stomach. Also, drink plenty of water! Being dehydrated can lead to feeling light-headed.

    “Fantastic experience! The whole crew made my first time more memorable than I expected! They gave me a tour of the place, answered all my questions and kept a casual conversation with me up until the point of the jump so that I felt more comfortable the entire time! The jump itself was phenomenal, air rushing past my face and my tandem skydiving instructor doing his best to make sure I had a blast while speeding towards the ground! 10/10 would jump again, and when I do it'll be at their facility!”
    “Loved it, the team at CSC were fantastic.”
    “My skydive was incredible. The staff and instructors were friendly, and we even got a free beer after our jump. If you're thinking about it, do it! You won't regret it.”
    “Freaking awesome!”
    “It was an amazing experience. Chicagoland Skydiving Center has wonderful staff very focused on our safety. What a RUSH to fall 120 miles per hour, then to be gently lifted when the parachute opens, ending in a soft landing. Thanks to Mikey and Joy for making this a memorable experience and to Diana for keeping us informed of the weather!”
    “Everyone involved with the experience, from booking right through to the activity (tandem skydive), was exceptionally friendly, professional, and personable. It was an outstanding experience, and everyone in our group agreed that this is something we would all do again, of course using all of the same services. Thank you to Cloud 9 Living, Chicagoland Skydiving Center, and their wonderful employees who all made this an outstanding adventure for my family and I!!! ”
