Is there an age limit?
Yes. You must be at least 18 yrs old to skydive. For legal reasons, there are no exceptions to this rule, even with parental consent.
What do I need to bring?
If you have already jumped at Skydive Dallas, you just need to bring yourself. Otherwise, you'll need a valid drivers license or other government-issued photo ID that verifies your age. You will also need your most recent logbook (to verify currency), proof of membership in the USPA or the National Parachute Organization from your country of origin, and proof of any ratings held (if you intend to exercise the privileges of those ratings).
At what altitude do we jump?
The typical exit altitude at Skydive Dallas is 13,500 feet.
Can family or friends come watch?
Of course. We have an observation deck, picnic tables, and even an on-site café if they get hungry. If you bring children, make sure that there will be someone available to watch them. Skydive Dallas is an adult playground, and children must always be under adult supervision.
I'm sitting around waiting for the weather to clear. What's there to do?
If inclement weather rears its ugly head, there are plenty of things to keep you entertained while you wait. To name just a few: free wireless internet, ping pong, foosball, skydiving videos, and satellite TV.
Can I camp out or spend the night at the Dropzone?
Certainly. We'd love to have you. Skydive Dallas has a free, first-come, first-served bunkhouse with 12 beds. For those who prefer the outdoors or the privacy of their own tent, we also have a designated camping area and parking space for RVs. Our bathrooms and showers are available 24/7 and we have toiletries available in the Pro Shop in case you forgot your toothbrush.
