On the day of your jump:

We do not recommend tight jeans, short shorts, crop tops or boots of any kind.

Loose or stretchy clothing is best. Additionally, we recommend sneakers or tennis shoes you wouldn’t mind getting a little dirty.

Eat and drink water as normal but preferably not right before your scheduled jump.

No alcohol is recommended for 24 hrs prior to your jump.

Anyone with medium length or longer hair will want to restrain it as much as possible. A braid and/or bun works nicely.

Please arrive dressed appropriately and ready to jump!!

Skydive Over the Smoky Mountains

Great fun and beautiful views

"They have their own paved runway and extended grass strip with a nice grass landing area for the skydivers. The place is professionally run and very friendly. As it is near the Smokey Mountains you get beautiful views of the mountains and nearby rivers and lakes from the plane and on the way down."

Most Incredible Experience Ever!

"Wonderful experience. They were very thorough with the safety briefing and I knew what to expect with each step. It set the bar so high I doubt I ever find anything to top it. Can't wait to go back!!!"
