the obvious question...

Why would anyone jump out of a perfectly good airplane?

but if you know the answer to that, the next question is... Why choose Skydive Kansas?

Let's walk through the process...
(hover over the text to pause and read...)

or you may have other common questions...

"How much does it cost? Can we get DISCOUNTS!?"
"Can I have it videoed?"
"When can I go?"
"How long does it take?"
"How old do you have to be?"
"How do I make more jumps or get a License?"
"Do you sell gift certificates?"
"Why don't you do GROUPON?"


Why we have Tandem: this method for introductory skydiving was never intended as an amusement ride. Hear Ted Strong, inventor of Tandem Skydiving, say it in his own words. THIS is Skydive Kansas philosophy: training, education, fun, guidance, mentorship, vision... We encourage and train people to take responsibility for themselves. We give our FIRST JUMP TANDEM STUDENTS an altimeter so you can see your altitude, a ripcord so you can pull your own parachute open, and the toggles so you can steer your parachute to the ground and land with us!

You're not just along for the ride!

Would you trust your life to just anyone? Don't just take our word for it ...

"My time leading up to my initial jump as well as the experience, itself, has lead to the strange realization that my fear of failure (something I have only recently realized I have) is greater, by far than my fear of injury or death. Given the likely cost of psychotherapy, I find the amount of self-realization per dollar to be a bargain with skydiving. ;)" - Tristan Zorko, Nebraska, May 2015
"Hi! My friend and I jumped with you guys yesterday... I would like to thank you for your up beat attitude and excitement for us as we boldly ventured where only 1% of the world's population decides to trek. For us, it was unfathomably exciting, and I want to thank you for cheering us on. I hope everyone you've met takes the time to thank you because you truly deserve the gratitude. I cannot stress enough the great impression you've left on my friend and I. once again, Jen, Turk, Rick, Justin, Emily, Kermit and anyone I was not fortunate enough to meet, thanks."

"Jen, I want to thank you and your staff. Your entire staff were polite, kind, and a lot of fun. They all made me feel at ease. Mr. Hubbell was amazing! From the moment I met him, I never doubted that I was completely safe. As I told Mr. Hubbell, after skydiving I now know why God rewards angels with wings. I am eager to jump again. I also want to go to ground school and make the required jumps to get my license. Again, thank you!"
