PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
There is NOT a skydiving dropzone in GILMER, LONGVIEW, TYLER, HENDERSON, OR NACOGDOCHES Texas.
We are the ONLY skydiving facility in East Texas.
While searching on the internet you will come across many options for skydiving. Many of these options are actually a ticket agency or what they refer to as a network that appears to be in or serve a town close to you and they have many names. Or it can be a multi-sport site that you can buy certificates from online. If you purchase a skydiving certificate from this ticket agency or network, you may get sent to a place that is two to four hours away to redeem it when another dropzone may be closer to you. The prices seem comparable but a real dropzone will not charge you a packing fee, tandem class fee or a handling fee after they get your credit card number. A real dropzone will only ask you for a $50 deposit to make an appointment and will not require you to pay for everything over the phone unless you are buying a gift certificate for someone else. Please feel free to ask for a physical address and make sure that it is a place that they actually own and are not farming you out to. Most dropzones will welcome a visit to their skydiving facility before you jump if you wish to do so. Please do some research before you buy something over the phone or internet.
